ENGINEERING IN MINIATURE TO FOLD

It was sad to hear from Engineering in Miniature that it will cease publication with the next issue, published in April. May of us remember the excitement caused in 1979 when the late Chris Deith published the first issue with super subjects, great contributors and exemplary drawings printed on really good paper. And so it continued under his direction for decades until being sold to its current publishers, Warners Group.

Editor, Andrew Charman, writes in the current issue:

“While I have no doubt that this news will be as disappointing to readers as it is to myself, I admit to not being greatly surprised by the decision. In today’s environment it has become increasingly difficult to keep producing the standard of magazine that you are used to and expect from us. I see  it in the amount of feature material I receive  -  attracting sufficient has become an ever growing challenge in the six years that I have been at the helm of EIM. Crucially the publishers see the growing difficulty in attracting enough readers and advertisers to the magazine.”

Andrew will have more to say in the final issue.


MIDLANDS EXHIBITION

Another part of the Deith legacy continues in the shape of the Midlands Model Engineering Exhibition.

This year its from Thursday 17th to Sunday 20th October 2024 at the Warwickshire Event Centre.

More than 30 clubs and societies will be present, displaying hundreds of exhibits covering a wide range of modelling skills at this last surviving major show.

There will also also be up to 40 of the leading model engineering specialist trade suppliers,

The competition and display classes are open to all from beginner to experienced modeller.  They are free to enter and all entrants receive two x 1 day passes to the exhibition.
