Thanks for posting this! I'm planning a trip to the Smithsonian early next year and had no idea this model was on display. I hope it's still around next April...

Funny how different it looks when the lights aren't on. I didn't know the aliens used giant screws for construction.

I will have to check it out if I ever get back to DC.

Bryan,
It's at the Smithsonin at Dulles like Breen said. It's kind of hidden in a corner but any of the guides can point you to it. it's a permanent possession of the museum so it should still be there when you go. Man I loved that movie as a kid.
