Brighton Modelworld 2016

Report by Chris Warrell

Friday 19th to Sunday 21st February saw the Modelworld show in the Brighton Centre right on the seafront. It covers almost everything, from model railways, radio controlled trucks, circus and fairground, plastic kits, boats, model engineering, Lego and, of course, Meccano. There were also clubs and preservation groups represented. You need a few hours there to do it justice.

There were four stands displaying Meccano: Michael Molden with a ghost train, Andy Ripley with a freelance double Ferris wheel, along with our own Guy Loveridge and his Volk's Railway and a bus, and Les Chatfield with a large number of models including a tower crane, scooter, railway, Meccanograph etc.
