O Scale West presents a variety of clinics. The clinics are held in Hyat meeting rooms located away from the ballroom. Typically the room is arranged classroom style, and if needed can be arranged with tables and chairs if the clinic includes hands-on activity.

Clinics include a variety of subjects, from a narrow perspective on a modeling challenge that the presenter has surmounted, to prototype information, how-to topics, and prototype and model history. Clinics are normally scale independent, so there is somthing there for you regardless of your modeling scale. Most clinics are repeated in order to accommodate those interested two clinics that are first presented at the same time.


The clnics schedule is posted here as soon as it is finalized, about a month before the show so you can plan your activiites while at the show.

2017 Clinics Schedule
