Western Engine and Model Exhibition.   

This year it will be held on August 26-28, 2011 at the Pleasanton, CA fairgrounds.


We are actually inside the 25th Annual Goodguys hot rod show where about

3,500 hot rods are exhibited to around 150,000 people. We have had a 50 foot booth there in past years but this year they gave us an entire pavilion (we are one of the major crowd pleasers).


Anyway, we’ll have some notable models there including Lou Chenot’s Duesenberg, Clen Tomlinson’s Deltic (over from the UK), Jim Moyer’s 1/6th scale small block, Eugene Corl’s cast iron 1/3rd scale small block, Ron Bement’s Ardun Ford, Roger Butzen’s, flathead Ford and His ¼ scale Hemi. And it will be the first official showing of the Black Widow V-8 by Ken Hurst and Dwight Giles. Plus all the normal engines that the Bay Area Engine Modelers can put on the table. Should be quite a show.

Florida Marine Museum Exhibition         

                  Saturday and Sunday, the 3rd and 4th  of February, 2007.

                  Manatee Conference Center, Palmetto, Florida

                    Photos from the 2007 Show by David Kerzel


The event is patterned after the model engineering exhibitions that have been held for many years in Great Britain. Over 150 ship, boat and engine models were on display last year in the large exhibition rooms of the Manatee Conference Center, and the program was the subject of a three-page, full color spread in a European modeling periodical. This year, the groups will add a venue for model engineers involved with miniature railroads and stationary model engines.
