The Petersen is proud to continue hosting Valley Con, one of the largest scale model competitions and exhibitions in Los Angeles. Hobbyists of all skill levels and ages, along with Hollywood professionals, come to showcase their finest creations from automobiles to zombies. This year Valley Con has added a “Trains” category to the competition, as well as large train displays from local clubs 20’s & 30’s & Beyond, California South Coast On30 Modular Group and Southern California Traction Club. We will also have a special guest from NASA/JPL discussing the future of space travel! Enter in the raffle for a chance to win kits from renowned brands, such as Tamiya, or visit the vendors for other kits, crafts and merchandise. Join us March 4 to view the collections or enter your own model to win!
