Model Engineer Competition 2019

featured at the National Model Engineering Exhibition, Doncaster

We were very pleased to see the Model Engineer Competition feature at the National Model Engineering Exhibition held at Doncaster in April. Mr Lou Rex, proprietor and organiser of the exhibition, kindly agreed to host the competition and the Society of Model and Experimental Engineers (SMEE) nobly took on the task of organising it. Just as in previous competitions, Gold, Silver and Bronze Medals were awarded, as were certificates for Very Highly Commended, Highly Commended and Commended entries. A selection of the usual trophies were also awarded.
The re-establishment of the competition is good news for Model Engineer, for the hobby and for the Doncaster show.

Now is the time to consider entering the 2020 Competition! Watch this space!!
