News and editorial

By David Carpenter

GORGON ENGINE BUILD CONCLUSION

The Gorgon ship engine model designed by Guenter Kallies has long been a favourite of your editor ever since he first commissioned it for a well-known magazine in the mid-naughties. It has proved popular with builders, too. We have recently had enquiries about the availability of drawings as they have only been available from old magazines or a booklet in German. So we though it would be a good idea to make drawings available from MEWS. Guenter kindly agreed, and he also provided the text of the model build. This week Guenter concludes his description.



MURRAY’S HYPOCYCLOIDAL ENGINE

A nice example of one of these fascinating engines shown by Mrs Dolmieo at Bristol.


HIT AND MISS ENGINE

This week Julius turns his attention once again away from steam to a hit and miss engine with compressed air powered valves.



GER TANK LOCO

We found two new locomotives in the news of 150 years ago this week. First of these is a Great Eastern Railway 0-6-0 tank loco.


CHICAGO & NORTH-WESTERN LOCO

Our second locomotive is from the US, a wonderfully decorative 4-4-0 just asking to be modelled.


MIDLANDS SHOW REPORT

Roger Froud reports from the ever-popular Midlands Model Engineering Exhibition.  With more than 1000 models on display, it reinforced its position as one of the leading model engineering exhibitions in the UK.

Part 2 here.



GUILD OF MODEL WHEELWRIGHTS

We were sad to hear of the demise of the Guild of Model Wheelwrights. Another tale of an organization where nobody can take on the roles to run it. It has been a pleasure for very many years to spend time with Guild members at most of the major exhibitions and admire their wonderful models. Let us hope that we will still be able to see them in future.



BRISTOL SHOW CANCELLED

Bristol Society of Model and Experimental Engineers has decided not to stage an exhibition in 2019. It does not, however, see this as the end of the line for the Bristol Model Engineering Exhibition.

“We are looking at alternative venues and approaches to see an event return in 2020, a return that will build on our success over the past 17 years.

“The Bristol Society of Model & Experimental Engineers faces considerable challenges in 2019 both with the exhibition and with other society affairs. In respect of the exhibition, it is evident that the model engineering environment is undergoing increasing change. We see changing demographics having an effect on many exhibitions, including ours, with increased costs, reduced visitor numbers and the growth in internet based purchasing being used by consumers; all these changes contribute to uncertainty around what might be the best exhibition format.

“In addition to those challenges we, as a society, need to focus on some big issues we currently face.”



ME PLANS SERVICE
