Issue Cover

Model Engineer  |  4529  


Welcome to Model Engineer Issue 4529

Our cover feature this time features ‘Jenny Lind’. The Society of Model and Experimental Engineers hold a large collection of historic models and this is the first in an occasional series to look at the conservation of a very old model indeed. Also looking back in history we bring you a contemporary account of an early trip on board Mr. Parsons’ Turbinia, the fastest vessel afloat (by a long way)!
Tyndale continues with the beginning of construction of this powerful little locomotive. And from power to speed; Paul Windross has a slightly different hobby - he races tethered hydroplanes and describes the preparations for a record attempt.
Pure model engineering can be found in the Allan Brothers Semi-Diesel engine series as Frank Cruickshank makes the governor bracket and gears.
Stewart Hart invites everyone to LittleLEC to be held in Cheshire this year and - something a little different - Jo Davies writes a humourous and heart-warming account of life married to a model engineer.
Model Engineer is the leading magazine in the world for model engineers. First published in 1898 by Percival Marshall, Model Engineer offers articles, plans on various engineering subjects.

Have now got used to my subscription being covered to digital and all is well here in Sydney
thank you. Reviewed June 4, 2020

Model Engineer

It is a good magazine. I am old so not to interested in the modern cad/cam. Did the Cad for a living as a manager. I am interested in the old ways of doing model engineering. My dad was into making small 3.5" gauge locos. So I am versed in his ways. As he said you make the side plates with a hack saw, file, surface table & bench drill. No need to mill out anything. What milling you do can be done on the Lathe with a large vertical slide. Bit different to what I see. You need more to teach filing skills much more. Keeps this a cheaper hoby. Reviewed May 30, 2020
