Downloads  About the Exhibition  This year, the ever-popular Midlands Model Engineering Exhibition will be returning to the Warwickshire Event Centre from Thursday 18th to Sunday 21st October.

 It is established as one of the leading model engineering exhibitions and the second longest running show of its kind in the UK. At four days in duration it is a comprehensive and full exhibition for everyone to enjoy, This is THE show for model engineers. 

Over 50 of the leading suppliers to the Model Engineering world will be present - check out the confirmed list of trade attending on the website.   

The exhibition showcases hundreds off models from over 40 societies and individuals for visitors to enjoy along with a wide range of outside attractions, workshops and lectures.   There are also a wide range of outside attractions to see, like the well regarded 5” gauge outdoor track, operated by the Coventry Society of Model Engineers and the Polly Owners Group, who will return with the magnificent Fosse Way Steamers.  There will be demonstrations from the Gas Turbine Builders Association and also Noel Shelley with his foundry work.   

2018 marks the 80th anniversary of the world speed record, when the Mallard achieved 126mph (203km/h) near Grantham, in Lincolnshire in 1938.  To celebrate this great achievement, several exhibitors will have Mallards on their stands and the Gauge 3 Society’s ‘Style and Speed’ display is expected to include some Mallards featuring larger scale models of locomotives, carriages and ephemera from the golden ages of railway travel. 

The exhibition remains focussed on the core model engineer modellers who have a real passion for what they do - whether they be new to the hobby or experienced and acknowledged modellers.
