Some fine scale model engineering in two of our construction series articles this time: George Punter’s Saunderson & Mills tractor looks at the steering mechanism and Frank Cruickshank, in his series on the Allan Brothers’ Lampless Oil Engine, makes the cylinder and crankshaft.
Terence Holland makes progress with the WW1 Barclay Well Tanks, Henry Wood starts on the construction of the cab of the saddle tank locomotive and the Bristol SMEE’s Bob Lilley writes about the making of a 5 inch gauge, strong and relible passenger hauler, ideal for a busy revenue earning passenger railway.
Leyland SMEE celebrated their 60th Anniversary with a great turn out of visiting engines and Lee Worthington has plenty of photographs.
Jacques Maurel has been ‘taming’ his drilling machine vice and explains the benefits of following his suggestion.

There will not be a Model Engineer Exhibition following the established format at Sandown Park in 2015. There may be an exhibition in 2015 - of which news will be made public at an appropriate time - and we are in the planning stages of an all new MEX 2016 but, at the moment, there is no further announcement to make.
