News 2019, April to June

Guild Meeting, 6th. April 2019.

   Although some of our members, who usually attend were unable to do so, there was  good attendance and an excellent display of models. Some of these are shown below. They were taken by Les. Nightingale Jr.  He was unable to photograph Alan Dawson’s No. 10 Set Eiffel Tower which only just fitted in under the ceiling. At  the suggestion of the Hall manager, we invited members of the public to come in to view our models in the morning but only a few came. However, we will try again at the AGM, when we should have time for more publicity.

MakeFest at the Museum of Science and Industry in Manchester, 25th & 27th May 2019.

  We had a very busy couple of days. Two Plastic Meccano Meccanographs were at work producing about 70 patterns on Saturday and nearly 170 on Sunday. 14 models were made on Saturday and 36 on Sunday, mainly from original Plastic Meccano and a rather nice Chinese made variation.

  There was a good display of members’ models, most of which are shown below. Click on them for more information and a larger picture.
