In Issue 4515 - IN THE SHOPS NOW!

In this issue ...

This issue features the first report from the recent IMLEC held at Nottingham. We publish the table of results and cover the first half of the competition.

If efficiency is not your cup of tea, how about some fine scale model making with Frank Cuickshank’s 1:10 scale open crank Diesel engine? This issue looks at construction of the cylinder.

If you are a member of a club that has ever needed to relay the track you may be interested in an article on the making and using of a cross level gauge - as described by one who used such a thing on the full size railway.

Terence Holland provides more detail in the construction of the First World War Barclay Tank locos and Alan Crossfield writes about painting his immaculate Royal Scot. Ted Jolliffe has had a rethink on the subject of Penn nuts and mick Knights takes us further along the road of his up-sized Mastiff.

All this and plenty more in this issue!

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.
