This exhibition has been running for over a hundred years during which time it has been universally acknowledged that to win an award here is one of the highest accolades that can be bestowed upon a model engineer.
However, it is not all about entering competition standard models; any model - no matter how simple and basic in design and manufacture - is welcome. Quite often it is a simple model that inspires, encourages and enthuses others to have a go at making something themselves. We want to ensure that there is something to be seen at the show on every level, from the experienced engineer to the beginner.

Andrew Johnston is making two 4 inch scale Burrell single crank compound engines and is looking at an alternative to the usual aluminium pistons by designing 'hollow' cast iron pistons. He uses CAD and traditional manufacturing techniques. A fasciniating article with much scientific analysis.
In this issue … Duncan Webster and Paul MIddlehurst have installed some new automatic sempahore signals at the Warrington track.
In this issue ... Roger Backhouse visits the London Transport Museum and looks at road an river transport from the earliest days of horse-drawn carriages to the newest buses on the Capital's streets.
In this issue ... Ian Strickland continues with the R & B Engine, demonstrating that it is possible, with some imagination, to make a large engine in a modestly equipped workshop.
Also in this issue ... Ashely Best starts to bring his series to a close by looking at finishing detail, Anthony Mount makes the engine bed and John Smith looks at the bunker detail of his 14XX locomotive.

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.
