"Any day spent building a model is better than a day spent at work - - Bill Wolfe

Facebook Exclusive - - Behind the Scenes at the War & Peace Museum in Waveland, Mississippi

Every modeler's dilemma is what to do with a project when it's finished.

It's easy to find a place to display a model or two, but what if you have a dozen?

Thomas F. Monti's problem was even bigger: he had over 4,000 completed models. His sons came up with a solution - - Build dad a museum.

T.F. Monti's "War & Peace" model museum sits just off Highway 90 in Waveland Mississippi, just west of the Bay St. Louis Bridge.

Models of airplanes, armor, ships, cars, and an assortment of oddities are displayed by category, each in a different room.

I talked with Joe Monti, TF's son, about his dad and the museum. (Interview available on Facebook link above)
