The Henley Gathering, as it is called these days, is sponsored by Geoff Wright, proprietor of MW Models. Geoff ran a two day show for 21 years, so now it's been scaled down a bit to a one day gathering, where most of us come to chat with our modeling friends, and also bring the occasional model. Members of the Henley Society of Meccano Engineers looked after the running of the show and things went very smoothly, from what I could see. The public are not openly invited, although one or two seem to sneak in from time to time.
This year I flew over to the UK for a 2 week vacation and timed it, of course, to coincide with the show.
Enough of the chit-chat, down to the pictures. Here are the highlights of the show for me - some wonderful models! I have only selected a small quantity of the models present for inclusion here, so apologies if you were hoping to see a picture of your model. There were a number of splendid models that I have shown on this site before, so I will not show these again.
