Issue Cover

Model Engineer  |  4527  


Welcome to Model Engineer Issue 4527

If you are thinking of entering your model into MEX 2016 at Brooklands this year turn to the Application Form together with competition rules printed in this issue. We also have a short feature on writing for the Model Engineer including guidance on putting together your article.
Model making covers the next part of Mastiff Plus and the Semi-Diesel for the I/C engine builders, Barclay Well Tanks for the locomotive enthusiasts and the completion of little Anna for those looking for a fairly straightforward stationary steam engine.
On the cover is Philipp Bannik’s lively little model of an horizontal metal shaper. This issue includes the second part of the series and some further drawings. We thought it deserved to be on the cover!
Steve Orchard describes the background to a sturdy battery electric passenger hauling locomotive before starting his description of the build in Issue 4529.
Harprit Sandhu makes a miniature hand drill - a good exercise in producing small gears, pinions and fitting it all together. Finally, if you have been grinding drills by hand for years you may want to have a look at Phil Harrison’s helpful article. Plenty to keep you busy!

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.
