THE Show for Model Engineers

We look forward to welcoming you to one of the UK’s largest model engineering exhibitions.

There will be over 30 clubs and societies present displaying hundreds of exhibits covering a wide range of modelling skills.

There will also be nearly 40 of the leading model engineering specialist trade suppliers, all waiting to meet you and provide everything you need for your modelling activities.

SMEE will be presenting some practical workshops again this year which will focus on a beginner’s project Elmers No 19.  Over the duration of the exhibition the team plan to make multiple sets of the parts and build a number of running examples as the show progresses.  

For the more experienced model engineer there will also be demonstrations of more complex techniques as well as a range of their famous models on display and a chance to meet the members and learn about their training courses, programme of meetings and membership.

The competition and display entries are now open, and the entry form can be downloaded below.

At this year’s exhibition, the John Stevenson Trophy will be awarded in association with Model Engineers' Workshop and the website.  This competition is awarded for excellence in practical and useful workshop equipment.  For more information on the competition and how to enter your work see

The Association of Helicopter Aerosports will be at the exhibition with an indoor static display, simulator, and outdoor flying demonstrations! The static display will cover various types and sizes R/C helicopters and the simulator will allow visitors to have a go at flying R/C helicopters. Weather permitting the AHA will also have an outdoor flying demonstration of scale model helicopters. Models included in the flying demonstrations are a 1/8 scale MH-65 Dauphin, a 1/7 scale Bell UH-1B Iroquois (Huey) and a 1/8 scale Westland Lynx HMA Mk8.

The lecture program is also shaping up and the full schedule will be announced soon!

This unique exhibition is the result of a tremendous amount of effort by many hundreds of modellers and other enthusiasts.

Please note there is limited parking on site for motorhomes.
