DONCASTER PREVIEW

Not long now before the opening of the National Model Engineering and Modelling Exhibition at Doncaster. If it is not already in the diary, it is May 10 to 12. Lots to enjoy. Here’s our preview.


NEW TOOLING SPRING 2019

Some very useful new tooling items now available for the workshop.


MOTORLET M-701 JET ENGINE

Our Model of the Week is a Czech jet engine built by John Healey and displayed at the last Doncaster show.



SIMPLE VERTICAL STEAM ENGINE

Latest from Julius is a simple single cylinder vertical steam engine.


BOND’S SIMPLEX PETROL ENGINE

We conclude our short series this week on building the Bond’s Simplex petrol engine. Castings are available again for this engine.

Phil Procter explains some of the finer points of machining the parts to help other builders. Phil is a member of the Bradford club that will no doubt have its usual excellent display at Doncaster.


PETROL RAIL CAR

Our trawl through the archives found this petrol powered rail car.


BOMBE PROJECT

Can you help with making some spares for the Bletchley Park Bombe project?


ME PLANS SERVICE

The plans service which used  to be run by Model Engineer magazine is now back in service with a new owner,  Sarik  Hobbies. Take a trip to https://www.sarikhobbies.com/model-engineer-builder/

DOWNLOADS

You are welcome to download items from this website for personal use only.

Incidentally, although drawings reproduce well on our website, they are even better as save downloads. By the way, when you download a drawing from MEWS, you do not download anything else at the same time.


SEARCH

An easy way to search for content on MEWS is to go to your web browser search and type in modelengineeringwebsite + what you wish to search. E.g. modelengineeringwebsite drill grinding.

Or have fun trawling back through earlier content.


PRINTING   

MEWS articles do not print in pages. The best way to print articles (for you own personal use only) from MEWS is to copy and paste into a Word (or similar) document.


DVDs

material published from 2009 to end 2014 has now been moved to DVDs, available here.


COPYRIGHT

Everything on MEWS (and almost everywhere else) is someone’s copyright. Please ask if you wish to use any material from MEWS and we can normally arrange that.

If you are submitting material for publication on MEWS, please make sure that you have permission where needed.

Anything we publish on MEWS remains the copyright of the originator - simple.
