One of the main features of the Spalding Model Engineering and Hobby Show, as the title suggests, is model engineering. That often means turn raw materials in working models of real-world engineering e.g. turning steel into a scale model of a traction or internal combustion engine, or planed wood into scale models of nineteenth century farm carts r yachts. Members of the various model engineering societies and clubs will be displaying examples of their expertise throughout the halls. They will also be available to answer questions and give advice. Here are some of the exhibits from 2016.
