Are There Any Model Stores In The Chicago Area..?

Tue Apr 08, 2008 7:21 am

Hi there everyone,

I will be going to Chicago on Wedensday the 9th thru the 21st of this month.

I would like to know if there any model shops in the Chicago area(s) that sell Gemini Jets, Dragon Wings, Hogan etc..?

Will there be any airline shows going on while I'm there.

Thanks very much for your help.

Just your luck, there will be a Airline Collectibles Show on Saturday the 19 of April at the Holiday Inn, in Elk Grove Village.
And the other place that I know of is, at ORD, there is a model shop there near the Hilton, I know it is between T-2 and the CTA station.... If you need more help let me know...

Yeah, I remeber where that store is! It's like near the entrance to the parking garage. I think its on level "Chicago Cubs", not too sure though. It's a pity I wasn't able to go when I left.

Matthew, Thanks so much for your help. I stopped by and unfortunately I didn't find anything I was looking for. I could tell a lot of merchandise had already been cleared out. What are the other stores like in the Chicago area?
