I’m a subscriber to “Model Engineers Workshop” a UK magazine that details projects for building tools and accessories for model engineering. In the latest edition there’s a free ticket for the Model Engineer Exhibition over at Sandown Park Racecourse on 9, 10 and 11 December 2011.
I also occationally read Model Engineer and Engineering in Miniature. In the November Engineering in Miniature there are a couple of interesting comments. The first is that their rival show at Alexandra Palace in January will have a model competition which is one of the differences in the shows I pointed out last year. The other comment was from the magazine editor in that there will be more workshop projects articles in the magazine in future, for example the next edition is to include TIG Welding and a Spark Eroding machine. Obviously they are trying to lure readers over from MEW. I won’t be cancelling my subscription just yet but some competition is between the magazines and exhibitions hopefully will keep both at a high quality.
