The UK’s biggest Meccano model exhibition, staged over three days.
For over a quarter of a century people have been trekking to Skegness in Lincolnshire for the first weekend in July to attend what is now the country’s biggest exhibition of Meccano models.
Organised by a willing band of volunteers from the North Midlands Meccano Guild this premier event draws people from many British and foreign clubs.
It runs from the Friday to the Sunday, with setting up on the previous Thursday. Children are especially welcome and we are proud to have a special section run by Wendy Miller to look after their Meccano interests.
It also welcomes perhaps the largest concentration of Meccano dealers in the country, offering a wide range of new and collectible parts and associated items. Click for a list of just some of those likely to be there.
On these pages you will see examples of the sort of models shown recently at Skegex.
