Model Engineering Exhibition
2018 - 19th-21st January
Chris R and Graham J attended on Friday. With it being quite busy in morning but tailed off in the afternoon. Toon tanks proved popular (like the egg planes)..
Martin H and Aaron arrived for the Saturday session after a cold and wet journey. There was a lot of interest in our display, as at one point there was a queue to take photos, a good day was had by both.
Sunday saw Chris K, Dave W, Brian B, Ed & Matt R brave the elements for the last day of the show.
There was a lot of interests with a steady stream of questions and photos about the display, even a photo shoot by SAM for the February edition. It was a very enjoyable day for all.
2017 - 20th-22nd January
With wails of "woe, thrice woe" ringing in our ears from Chairman Dave over the amount of paperwork he has to complete for this show, we headed north to the Alexandra Palace with our usual enthusiasm. Whilst there were some planned changes to set-up and breakdown for us, it all turned out pretty much the same as last year. Chris R, Brian and Graham J took care of Friday, Tim Ev, Martin and Aaron were in attendance on Saturday and Chairman Dave, Chris K, Brian, Ed and Matthew took care of Sunday. Chris L did his bit here and there over all three days when not with his model railway chums. Keith also paid us a visit on Friday to let us know how his house renovation is going - or not, as the case may be! Tim Ea visited on Saturday.
Once again it seems we all had a good time, traffic to the table was pretty constant across the three days and we think the visitors enjoyed stopping by for a chat and a look at our models. Hopefully we may see some again at club meetings in due course.

2016 - 15th-17th January
Well here we are again, back at the Alexandra Palace to share the billing with the World Snooker Championship. Thanks to all who braved the North Circular to display - Dave W, Brian, Dave T, Martin, Chris K and Graham J and thanks to the members who came along to provide moral support, though coffee and cake would also be appreciated next time. They were Chris R, Ed and Matthew, John and Phillip.

2013 - 18th-20th January
We were there for all three days as usual, meaning the display was never the same. The photos are taken of Friday's set comprising those models made by Tony, Brian and Graham. Sadly the other two days' displays were not photographed.
2012 - 20th-22nd January
Photos below are for our "Friday" and "Sunday" tables - it changed each day as different club members brought different models to put into the display. Friday's set comprised those models mainly made by Tony, Brian and Graham. Sunday added Dave W's and Martin's. We had lots of visitors throughout the three days, and given the engineering focus, Brian was is his element showing his miniature motors and lighting systems. Even Graham managed to talk about something different other than Harriers - though not for long of course. Martin and Dave W got to talk about planes for a change. Nobody fell asleep, and it was great to walk out of a show without a few additions to the model stash under the arm, although some of us failed the test - no names, no pack drill Dave W.
