Magazine Description

In this issue

Welcome to Model Engineer Issue 4572 Martin and Linda Gearing are pleasantly surprised by the improvements achieved by fitting a 'rosebud' grate to one of the Andover club's Sweet Peas. Ramon Wilson reworks the original boiler of his 2 inch scale model of a clinker built steam launch in order to bring it up to modern standards. Bernard North reviews the special exhibition of LBSC's designs at the Bristol Model Engineering exhibition and Robert Vine visits the LBSC Memorial Rally at Leicester. Members of the National 2½ Inch Gauge Association have been busy resurrecting some of LBSC's lost drawings. Neil Heppenstall provides a brief overview. We also have a sample of Dean Da Silva's CAD illustrations of some of LBSC's locomotives. Chris Gunn continues his series on the Garrett 4CD Tractor by describing the manufacture of the steering mechanism, using mostly material scavenged from the scrap bin. Wally, it seems, is quite out of puff. Bob Reeve spins a tale of how he put the wind back in Wally's sails by equipping him with a brand new set of gears. Our cover features Peter Wardropper's Gold Medal winning Jenny Lind, pictured at LittleLEC. She also put in an spirited appearance at the LBSC Memorial Rally at Leicester.
