A look at the prize winners at the Doncaster Show: thoughts on Rosebud grates from an enthusiastic advocate: model making, restoration and railway history plus the Vol 218 Index.
For the second year the National Model Engineering Show was staged at Doncaster Racecourse and we look at those models that earned their builders a trophy or prize, including a rather nice 2 inch scale Fowler Showmans road locomotive featured on the cover this time.
Rosebud grates is always a popular topic and Les Philips from Australia is a keen advocate. He looks at the findings of others and reaches his own conclusions, encouraging newcomers to consider their use.
Mick Knights shows us the basics of building an extension to the ‘playroom’ (or ‘workshop’), something we might all have considered from time to time.
Stephen Wessel returns to the model of an elusive aero engine as he begins the second part of his occasional series.
Puffie is completed as Wolfgang Tepper finishes a little ‘executive toy’ - perfect for the office desk - but which has included some precision engineering and Terry Woodward completes his general description of the refinements he made to the Metro Tank design to create a model of a Colne Valley and Halstead Railway passenger tank engine.
At the other end of the proverbial scale, Tony Bird has been restoring a very old model steam engine of unknown origin and which was far from a precision built originally!
Geoff Theasby attended the Early Engines Conference and reports back and Ron Fitzgerald continues his fascinating study of English and French locomotive design in the second half of the twentieth century.
