WEEK ENDING 
27 JULY 2017

THIS WEEK


GWR POWER

With the Bristol exhibition approaching fast we take a look back at two super models of Great Western locomotives shown last year by Graham Hawkins. These are Collett’s King Edward IV  and Churchward’s 4700, large and powerful express and freight engines. These are our Models of the Week. Envy! Envy!


STUART LIGHTWEIGHT

Jason Ballamy continues his description of building a water cooled Stuart Lightweight Petrol engine. This was a quick project based on old drawings.

Incidentally, we came across in the MEWS archive, photos of Stuart Lightweights by the late  John Bertinat in both water and air cooled form.

Metric Minnie

We were happy to hear from Julius de Waal a few weeks back that a Metric Minnie traction engine had been completed to his drawings - as published on MEWS a couple of years ago. We contacted the builder, Franco Pucci, in South Africa who is kindly giving us details of his build. He has completed the project in just two years which would be impressive for anyone. But Franco is a complete newcomer to model engineering, learning from scratch as he went along. Impressive!

 

Julius de Waal continues with drawings for us for a display model of Stephenson’s Rocket.
