MIDLANDS SHOW REPORT 3

The the ever-popular Midlands Model Engineering Exhibition at the Warwickshire Event Centre, once again fascinated model engineers with a super display of models. So much so that Roger Froud’s report needs three parts to cover just some of what was on view.



GARDEN RAIL

Meridienne Exhibitions has set the date for the next Midlands Garden Rail Show. It takes place at the Warwickshire Event Centre on Saturday 14th and Sunday 15th March 2020. Some 35 suppliers are expected at this well attended event.



BOAT SHOW

The International Model Boat Show is on this weekend, November 9 and 10 at the Warwickshire Event Centre with 600 plus models and around 30 club displays.



CALEDONIAN 2-4-0

A chance conversation had us searching back through our photo library (we guess there are about 40,000 of them) for locomotives of the Caledonian Railway. One such was this very attractive Connor 2-4-0 to (we guess) the Roy Amsbury design in 5” scale, belatedly our Model of the Week.



LITTLE KATHY STEAM ENGINE

Latest from Julius are drawings for a scaled up Little Kathy steam engine. Fabricated construction, of course.



ROLLING MILL ENGINES

Our delve into the archive this week takes us back 150 years to an article in Engineering magazine on Thwaites and Carbutt rolling mill engines.



MODEL ENGINEERING APPRENTICESHIP

About ten years ago we published on MEWS a guide for beginners to the hobby, which went down quite well. Things have changed a bit over time, so we are publishing an updated version.




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.
