Meridienne Exhibitions will be holding the London Model Engineering Exhibition at Alexandra Palace on 20th-22nd January.
New for 2012, the exhibition will feature a competition section: the Great Model Engineering Competition 2012. The competition classes are as follows: Class 1 railway locomotives gauge 1 to 3½in gauge, Class 2 railway locomotives 5in to 7¼in gauge, Class 3 rolling stock, all gauges, Class 4 stationary and marine engines, Class 5 steam and other road vehicles, Class 6 tools and workshop equipment, Class 7 internal combustion engines, Class 8 hot air engines and Class 9 horological and scientific.
The key points the judges will be considering are: fidelity to prototype – exhibitors should provide information on the prototype of the model with, if possible, photographs or prints of the original as appropriate for the period which the model depicts; workmanship and quality of finish; and the entrant’s current or former trade or profession.
The closing date for entries is Friday 23rd December.
A variety of exhibitors will be attending the show including a number of trade and club stands. Clubs already confirmed include the Gauge 1 Model Railway Association, the British Model Flying Association and the Model Power Boat Association.
Advanced, discounted tickets are available to buy until 7th January. Advanced tickets at full price are available until 14th January. Tickets can also be bought on the day.
