- The MODEL ENGINEER COMPETITION 2019 -
to feature at the National Model Engineering Exhibition, Doncaster
We are very pleased to announce that the Model Engineer Competition will now feature at the National Model Engineering Exhibition held at Doncaster. Mr Lou Rex, proprietor and organiser of the exhibition, has kindly agreed to host the competition and the Society of Model and Experimental Engineers (SMEE) has nobly taken on the task of organising it. Just as in previous competitions, Gold, Silver and Bronze Medals will be awarded, as will certificates for Very Highly Commended, Highly Commended and Commended entries. A selection of the usual trophies may also be awarded.
The re-establishment of the competition is good news for Model Engineer, for the hobby and for the Doncaster show, which takes place at the Doncaster racecourse from the 10th to the 12th of May.
Now is the time to consider entering for the competition, as the deadline for entries is the 10th of April. A downloadable entry form and a copy of the rules is provided below and will be printed in Issue 4607 of Model Engineer (1st March).
There must be plenty of models out there that deserve a medal or a certificate, or a chance to win one of these iconic trophies, so let’s get the reintroduction of the Model Engineer Competition off to a good start!
