In this issue ... Ian Strickland starts a new series on making the R & B Engine. This engine was described in Model Engineer almost 30 years ago but Ian fills in a few of the gaps in terms of the actual making of the model. His set-ups and descriptions shed a new light on this construction. The engine is hardly a model at all - more a small, full size, very workmanlike engine! Ian's won a Very Highly Commended at the 2013 MEX.
In this issue … Chris Lyall writes from Afghanistan as he prepares to travel home to set up a model engineering school for begineers and improvers.
In this issue ... Malcolm High looks to the future of model engineering and the techniques that can save much time and maybe give hope to the average model maker for whom time is the most precious 'commodity'.
Also in this issue ... LBSC's Bantam Cock loocomotive continues and Ashley Best makes some interior detail in the Salford Tramcar. The 1884 Garrett staonary engine by Anthony Mount gains a governor.

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.
