The 2007 North American Model Engineering Society show has come and gone. Now it is time to redouble efforts to get those new casting kits machined, painted and polished for next years show.
I, for one, had a marvelous time this year. I had opportunity to meet a number of fellows from the r.c.m. newsgroup and a number of others from various bulletins boards such as the H.S.M. board. It was very flattering to be sought out by a couple of guys who wanted to compliment me on the N.E.M.E.S. website. The compliments are very much appreciated. Also always welcome are any suggestions on how the web site can be made better.
I count myself fortunate to be associated with such a great bunch of friends as I have made in the New England Model Engineering Society. The camaraderie and fellowship in our hobby is great and is a big part of the enjoyment of shows like NAMES.
Every effort is made to credit the right builder with the right project but errors can creep in. If you recognize someone's work which is incorrectly credited please let me know right away so that I can correct the problem. firstname.lastname@example.org Most of the photos here are my work but I certainly hope hat other members of NEMES who were at the show will share their photos with all of us.
I had great expectations for the videos from NAMES but when I started to process the clips I discovered that there was no sound! I had bought a new microphone hoping to focus the sound pickup and eliminate some of the background noise but it turns out that when the external mike is plugged in, and the internal mike is cut off, it all works better if the operator TURNS ON THE EXTERNAL MIKE!!! Well, now I know and I won't make that mistake again. I hope.

This is a single cylinder Murdock double acting, ocillating engine. The photo above of Max ben Aaron also show a Double Murdock engine. The double Murdock was built by Errol Groff of NEMES from a casting set sold by Clarence Meyers.
This was our Friday night super at the Park Inn restraunt.
Saturday night dinner was at the Spaghetti Warehouse. A great meal and fine companionship. I made the mistake of ordering chocolate cake for dessert and was roundly hazed.
