I visited that museum in May-2016. I show the pictures have you taste an atmosphere with interest. There are dark parts and unbalanced lighting of illuminations, so the pictures which are not completely satisfactory, but I’m glad if you enjoy. My hobby is modeling so the ordinary persons may feel some pictures of the strange angle. There are also pictures which were out of the focus. The information posted on this page is current as of May 2016. Please check the latest information as needed, such as access methods and exhibition contents.
Because I wanted to see the other museums in one day, it is a pity that I was looking around in a hurry. It’s the center of Washington, D.C., so quite crowded with a weekday. I think that I could enjoy it for a full day if I see it slowly and carefully. There are a lot of famous spots like Capitol Hill and the National Gallery of Art, etc. I wanted to watch the Air and Space Museum displayed aircraft one by one taking much time, also would like to take pictures as many as possible. I would like to have sightseeing in many other places, time was limited. I had been rushed, so when there is a chance again, I’d like to spend more time.
Apollo Lunar Module. Because I’m hungry and ate at McDonald’s in the back. We ate here for the first time in a few years because there is no place to eat. I think the taste won’t change with Japan. The size of Big Mack was not different from Japan.
It is linked to Apollo and Soyuz. I did not take a photo in the proper frame, it’s too large. The United States and Soviet were also doing a cooperation mission of space development in a cold war period.
There was also a corner of the drone, which is often used in the recent war against terror. The photo is MQ-1L 97-3034. The unmanned aircraft appeared frequently in drama Homeland and 24 live another day.
Zero fighters, Macchi and the Messerschmitt were displayed, too, but it was slightly dark, and a proper photograph did not come out. A regret. It is smaller than the Udvar-Hazy Museum and there are many panel displays. It was in the middle of Washington DC and good access. I recommend you to see hear and the second is Udvar-Hazy if suit your schedule.
I am interested in models of tanks, airplanes, ships, military figures, I build it little by little when I feel like it. I am also interested in the history of war. My starting is Tamiya’s Military Miniature series in the elementary school.
From elementary school through university students repeatedly suspend and restart my modeling, it’s about 25 years of this hobby’s history.
Born in February 1970, I live in Tokyo. From February 2007 I was quietly doing a site called “Miniature-Arcadia”. It is being transferred to this blog with the same name from December 2016. My update pace is uneven, but please come to see here occasionally.
