THE Magazine for Model Engineers
Launched in 1979, Engineering in Miniature has established a reputation for its quality of articles and drawings and is highly respected for its technical content.
Published monthly it features construction articles on all aspects of model engineering. These articles describe the construction of scale model locomotives, steam road vehicles, stationary, marine, petrol and hot air engines, clocks plus of course numerous model engineer workshop projects, tooling and machinery.
This month in Engineering in Miniature there′s a hot-air theme – new contributor Alan Pickering describes his passion for Stirling engines and build an example, while 16-year-old Daniel Bell describes the creation of his own Stirling engine. We take a visit to the 12.25-inch gauge Fairbourne Railway in Wales, a mighty miniature and the rail equivalent to 6-inch scale model traction engines!
Jan-Eric Nyström machines up the newly-cast wheels for his 7.25-inch gauge Ten-Wheeler. Rich Wightman′s series on protective coatings reaches the less well-known copper plating. Stuart Hart continues his micro-engine build and we also hear about the new signalling system at the Rugby ME...
