Les Chenery

Whilst walking around the Shuttleworth Collection I came across a display cabinet with a number of engines built by Les Chenery. The I thought I just have to add a post and share the images of these wonderful working model engines. Details of how you can still get drawings for these models are available on the model engineering website (modelengineeringwebsite.com/).
