SEATTLE — A well-known Seattle modelist who devoted his life to very small, delicate and accurate models of national parks and area buildings died last month.
Vigo Rauda died May 7 at his Seattle home from heart failure. He was 82-years-old.
According to the Seattle Times, Rauda created more than 8,000 models during his lifetime, growing a business from a small, local company into something of a nationally known enterprise.
Rauda leaves behind his wife and three children.
