This was a find at an estate sale several weeks ago, just getting around to sorting them out.
I bought two large boxes of “Model Engineer Magazine, The Magazine For The Mechanically Minded”, around 300 in all, dating back to 1955.
These are not plastic models, these are scale metal models that you build from scratch and machine the parts on lathes, milling machines, drill presses, etc.
As you can see, they cost one Shilling each. They were imported from England, printed in London and published every Thursday.
Some of the stuff these people build is amazing.
A lot of great reading for $10.00!
enjoy

    Hi, packrat! Please pardon me for posting this here, but could you please take a look at this old item? No one has yet weighed in on it, and I suspect that it would be a snap for you. Many thanks! miKKo
