The 39th Midlands Model Engineering Exhibition will be taking place from the 13th to 16th October at the Warwickshire Exhibition Centre.


 


This event attracts over 11,000 visitors who can see nearly 100 companies and club displays in one place!  There will be over 1,000 superb models on display and a full lecture programme is presented together with workshop demonstrations.

To celebrate its 80th anniversary this year, David Glen will be exhibiting with us and will bring some components of his 1:5 scale Spitfire Mk IX model, including the full instrument panel, control column, pilot’s seat, tail wheel assembly, etc.

Went to this for the first time last year with society minibus, well worth a visit.

Minibus not going this year and I don't fancy the long drive from N Wales so will be giving it a miss.

Did consider public transport (train) but the time (or lack of) at the show makes for an expensive trip.
