Midlands Model Engineering Exhibition, Thursday 19th to Sunday 22nd October 2017, Warwickshire Exhibition Centre.
This year, the ever-popular Midlands Model Engineering Exhibition will be celebrating its 40th anniversary! It is established as one of the leading model engineering exhibitions and the second longest running show of its kind in the UK. The show runs from the 19th to 22nd of October at the Warwickshire Exhibition Centre and is THE show for model engineers.
Over 50 of the leading suppliers to the Model Engineering world will be present - check out the confirmed list of trade attending on the website, as well as around 40 clubs and over a 1000 models will be on display from both societies and individuals.
There are also a wide range of outside attractions to see, like the well regarded 5” gauge outdoor track, operated by the Coventry Society of Model Engineers and the Polly Owners Group, who will return with the magnificent Fosse Way Steamers.
2017 will also see the Midlands Meccano Group celebrate their 50th anniversary with a special display. Don’t forget there is also a full lecture programme which is presented by leading specialists, together with various workshop demonstrations.
The exhibition remains focussed on the core model engineer modellers who have a real passion for what they do - whether they be new to the hobby or experienced and acknowledged modellers.
As always, the event promises to be THE Show for Model Engineers and at four days in duration it is a comprehensive and full exhibition for everyone to enjoy.
Why not be part of the show and enter your work? Entry is free and there are 32 classes of which 16 are competition and 16 are display. These classes include: Locomotives, Rolling Stock, Stationary and Internal Combustion Engines. Models still under construction can also be entered in the display classes. A commemorative plaque and exhibitor’s certificate will be presented to every entrant, with trophies and cash prizes awarded to winners - download an entry form from the website.

We welcome well written contributions from Website members on almost any aspect of Model Boating with a particular emphasis on practical hints, tips, experience and builds.
In order to maintain a consistent standard and format, all suggestions should first be sent to me by Personal Message for approval in principle. Only a very limited amount of time is available for editing contributions into a suitable format for placing on the website so it is important that the material is well presented, lucid and free from obvious spelling errors. I think it goes without saying that contributions should be illustrated by appropriate photos. I shall be happy to give advice on this.
The Member Contribution area offers space for short informative mini articles which would not normally find a place in Model Boats magazine. It is an opportunity for Website Members to freely share their expertise and experience but I am afraid that virtue is its own reward as there is no budget to offer more material recompense!
I look forward to receiving your suggestions.
Colin Bishop - Website Editor
