Model engineering is about to take a leap in the cool stakes as the South’s Major Showcase of Modelling today announces ‘The Ministry of Steampunk’ as the show’s newest exhibitor. The London Model Engineering Exhibition welcomes The Ministry to the show for the first time with an amazing display of art pieces, costumes and never-before-seen models that will leave visitors spell-bound.

Steampunk takes the past and wraps it in a new imagination, creating a history that should have been. The Ministry of Steampunk is a collective of designers, engineers and artists who recreate totally unique and original versions of some of history and popular culture’s favourite shows, stories and moments.

Mark Goodman, designer and engineer at The Ministry of Steampunk added: “We want to encourage a new generation in to modelling, engineering and design; joining an event like the London Model Engineering Exhibition allows us to help do that; to show modelling is cool; to encourage future modellers and creators to pick things up and have a go – from Lego to Meccano, to finding old pieces of ‘junk’ and turning them into something fabulous. That is what modelling is about. That is what Steampunk is about. We’re over the moon to be showcasing at the London Model Engineering Exhibition and excited to let everybody see what we have on offer.”

Along with this, visitors can travel between the show’s different zones, trying the activities and watching fascinating and technical demonstrations. Over 50 clubs and societies will be present displaying their members work and competing to win the prestigious Society Shield. In total, nearly 2,000 models will be on display.

All of the leading suppliers will also be present showcasing new products and special promotions and giving hobbyists an excellent opportunity to see and compare products under one roof. You will be able to purchase virtually anything you need for your next model or project or to get you started in a hobby.

If you are an active model engineer this is a key event in the calendar to meet other hobbyists and see the leading suppliers. Full of inspiration, this unmissable exhibition promises a brilliant day out for the whole family!
