The 37th Model Engineer Exhibition, which opened on January 3rd at the Seymour Hall, London, remains open until January 13th, Sunday excepted, from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. It covers all facets of engineering in miniature but from our viewpoint interest centres round the 95 ft. long eight-lane racing-car circuit on which visitors are able to try their skill. Whether this exhibit would have been classed as traditional model engineering in earlier years is open to doubt, but the traction engine models and the live steam track are fully in keeping with those exhibitions I attended as a boy. There are also the scale model aeroplanes of various sizes and intentions. But model cars are sadly rare, apart from the rail and slot racers. There are, however, a ½-scale 1928 G.P. Bugatti with working steering, a 2 in.-scale Brescia Bugatti and a 1/12-scale Type 59, G.P. Bugatti in competition Class M (racing cars), a skeleton form of TD M.G. and a ¼-scale 1900 Werner Motorcycle in Class O, a 26-cc. water-cooled s.v. petrol engine and a freelance 15-c.c. 4-cylinder motorcycle engine in Class K and a working model of a Manx Norton with freelance engine in Class L.

Various trade stands are present but unfortunately prices in the model world seem to have risen to even more astonishing heights than in the historic car field. Auto-Models Ltd. occupy Stand No. 1 and the Model Racing Car Centre Stand No. 74. Admission costs 3s.
