In the Latest Issue of Model Engineer

In Issue 4512 - IN THE SHOPS NOW!

In this issue ...

Step-by-step methods: machining castings, diorama details & large scale construction. Loco building and exhibitions. A packed issue!

We start a new series constructing a full size, but small engine by Robert Tidman of Norwich. These little vertical, single cylinder engines provided power for the organ within a traditional fairground ride - the Gallopers or the Cakewalk, perhaps. The article is by ‘amateur’ engineer, David Owen. David’s approach is that of someone who has not worked in engineering all his life so, in that, he may have much in common with many readers. His descriptions are clear and easy to understand.

Chris Gunn continues with the 6 inch scale traction engine and Ashley Best provides further instruction on detailing the street where the trams trundle along. Ashley’s illustrations alone are worth studying for their sheer beauty! Jan Ridders describes setting the timing of the little Otto Engine and Rhys Owen completes his fascinating tour of American narrow gauge railroads.

All this and much more!!

Model Engineer Exhibition

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.
