As autumn approaches the model engineer’s thoughts turn to what new bits and pieces they can buy at the model engineer exhibition.
There will be a large selection of suppliers and exhibits from clubs and competition entrants. There will be live steam engines and traction engines for you to see in action and a selection of aircraft and marine models too. If you have a model or tool that you want to show off then there is still time to enter as the closing date for entries is 30th November 2010. For those with a more zany taste the Stirling society will have a large range of engines on show.
The Society of Model & Experimental Engineers will be providing a series of lectures and demonstrations, please be aware that the show web site is currently displaying last years programme.
If you book early it’s possible to stay on site at the race course, I stayed there last year and the rooms although basic were comfortable and a good cooked breakfast was provided too. The staff were helpful and very friendly.
