The London Model Engineering Exhibition at Alexandra Palace in 2014 was busy as usual. Plenty going on and as good a collection of trade stands as you will see anywhere to keep visitors stocked up with tooling and materials in the months’ ahead.

There were plenty of highlights and plenty to interest model engineers’ and modellers’ varied interests. The Society of Model and Experimental Engineers put on an excellent display of its wide-ranging activities. It is also good to see more and more models from its wonderful collection now being tidied up and displayed for all to see. The SMEE has a super collection of historic models which its members can study at the Marshall House headquarters.

There were also great displays by the Seven and a Quarter Society and, at the other end of the live steam spectrum, the Gauge 3 Society, not to mention an impressive Atlantic shown by the 10.5” organization.

Plenty of models to see, plenty of trade stands to patronize and some really decent food. No wonder the London event is so popular.
