This year’s Model Engineer Exhibition will be held over the 12, 13 and 14 December. What a marvellous opportunity to do all your Christmas shopping in one place? Last year’s exhibition was big success with numbers up and excellent feedback from visitors, exhibitors and traders. The new ‘Maker Fayre’ section was very popular and We are delighted to confirm that Marc Barto has agreed to organise its return again this year. For those of us who want to learn more about topics such as 3D-printing this is a great opportunity. The pictures show models from recent exhibitions.
