Hobbytown USA will host the Wine Country Modelers’ very informal discussion about building scale models 7-9 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 15. The focus will be on cars, but sci-fi figures and military models will be included. The evening includes Q&A session, demos, new techniques and products. Here’s a safe and sane escape from the holiday madness for all ages.

Location: Plaza North Shopping Center, on McDowell St.

Phone: 762-2176.
