In the Latest Issue of Model Engineer

In Issue 4610 - IN THE SHOPS NOW!

In this issue ...

In a truly international edition we go to France for pressure cookers, Spain for locomotive nameplates, Japan for cylinder blocks and North Lincolnshire for GWR pannier buffer beams and frame stays.

Martin Clarke remembers the life of the inventor of the pressure cooker, who inspired the design of Newcomen’s atmospheric engine and for whom a memorial is to be erected in London.
Graham Gardener spends a day in the West Country and visits the West Somerset steam and vintage rally.
Kevin Barry presents a design for a compact and comparatively simple six cylinder stationary rotary engine.
Norman Barber looks back at his experience of making his first locomotive Rainhill and recalls its renaissance with a new boiler.
Andover model engineers hit the international scene last year with their Rob Roy rally and Rex Hanman invites all owners to this year’s rally.
Chris Gunn embarks on the manufacture of a pair of water gauges for his half scale Garrett 4CD tractor.
Doug Hewson details the buffer beams and frame stays for his rework of LBSC’s GWR pannier tank.
We showcase John Tomlinson’s Stuart beam engine steam plant while Mike Tilby looks at the major sources of losses in model steam turbines.
Terence Holland considers how to make a set of nameplates for his Barclay well tanks and Hiroyuki Watanabe tackles the complex task of designing a three cylinder block for his Japanese C53 locomotive - as featured on our cover this time.



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!!
