Model Engineer Exhibition

This years Model Engineer Exhibition, which is of interest to so many of our readers, will be opened by Stirling Moss, OBE. It is open from 10.00 to 19.00 hours each day from January 4th to January 13th with the exception of the Sunday. Last year 75,000 visitors attended this enthralling display of scale models of all kinds. The venue is the Wembley Conference Centre, near London and easy of access from the North Circular Road, while there is ample car parking. The admission charge is £1 for adults, 50p for children. Organised by Model & Allied Publications Ltd. and sponsored by ten of that company's specialist magazines, the Exhibition will include a live steam railway track, a radio-controlled model-car racing circuit, a model boat pool and other actual examples of running models. This year the model car and miniature internal combustion engine sections will be larger, over 100 Trade stands will be selling models, materials and books, and there will be many lectures and film showings. - W.
