For those that could not make it here is a selection of photos that I took, maybe someone who is more into Locos or watercraft could add some of those subjects as I mainly concentrated on stationary & IC engines.

Direct link to album

But the forum software usually scales the image to fit dont know

Most of my images are 1000 pixels wide, and they never spill-over on the iPad.

Yep, definitely an IPAD related issue, running the latest OS and I'm getting exactly the same as David, ok on the Macbook and Windoze laptop. Viewing with the latest version of Chrome on all but same issue on IPAD with Safari.

Direct kinked slideshow works fin on IPAD

Hi Jason, many thanks for going to the trouble to post photos of the exhibition !!!! As an ex Gardner employee, I was particularly interested in the half scale single cylinder oil engine that was in your collection. Would you by any chance have any more details of the builder?? It would be an interesting engine to build, maybe a bit big for my machine tools but nice to own. Regards, Jim.

Both direct links work fine on my v1 iPad running iOS 5.1.1

For info. On the forum page; the embedded slideshow has a wide black border at the left [and presumably the right] edge, with the navigation arrow on it. ... Unlike Jason's screen-shot, which has the arrows overlaying the photo.

Jim C, Sorry I did not get the builders name on that one. But I can tell you that it is built from a set of castings that were available from the now defunct "Alyn Foundry" but the 1/2" O size is available through the Anson Engine Museum which I think that particular set came from. They also hope to have some "Retlas" castings for the new opening season and that is an engine loosly based on a Gardner vertical single and more to follow.

Best place if you want more info is Model Engine Maker Forum as there are a few members there who have built the horizontal Gardner and Graham Corry (owner of Alyn Foundry) posts there, he is also very knowledgable on early gas engines. This is a build thread of the Retlas that has some reference to horizontal too. You may have to join to see the attachments in some of the posts but thats easy enough.

J

PS If anyone wants to see a few more Models then there are some of Cabin Fever which is also taking place this weekend that are also on MEM forum, yesterdays shots in this post and likely more to follow later.

If folk have trouble seeing it, can't they just follow Jason's links?

Jason seems to be the first person to work out how to put a photobucket carousel in an iframe on this site. I say thanks on behalf of those who it works for, and note that he's got links for ipads and direct to the album for anyone it doesn't work for.

At this show the majority of models are on club stands, as I don't belong to any of those clubs you won't be seeing my engines there. If you want to pop over for Model Engineer show at Brooklands or the Guildford show you may get a glimpse of it and a few of it's stable mates.

PS Should have said that Cabin Fever show has a lareg auction which is what a lot of those first day photos show in the link I my previous post.

Ahh yes our RailEx is similar

To pop over for a show would be great but would cost an arm and a leg (or a lathe that I have my eye on). I would love to see some of the ME and MEM forum member's engines (and spend a few days in John S's workshop)

My wife's family hail from Stornaway so maybe our next trip may have to be planned to coincide with a ME show somewhere.

Regards

Bruce

Great photos but that slide presentation is really annoying. Let users move on when they want to not force them to find the stop button every time the page is opened.

Great photos of the D10 but did you see the triple in the larger launch just behind it which was probably the most photographed and stroked model in the show. How can adults not know that they shouldn't touch exhibits? It is incredibly bad manners to stick your manky fingers on someone's beautifully polished brass work yet these people had no consideration for a fellow modeller's masterpiece. Perhaps all club chairmen and ME/MEW could make a simple reminder of etiquette at the next meeting / editorial.
