The ISM is very sorry to report the death of Geoff Brown on October 10th 2020.
He will be sorrowly missed in the Meccano fraternity.
Philip Webb, Chairman of the ISM dedicated a special page on the website of North Midlands Meccano Guild. 

Message from Philip Webb, chairman of the ISM.

Covid is a global issue, and the ISM would love to know how clubs, societies and individuals are responding to its challenges where you are.
Our thoughts have often turned to you as reports of virus-problems have reached us from your country.
No doubt you have been watching the ever-changing news from us, too!
So, if you have stories or pictures, do send them to me or to Kees Trommel (our website manager).
Perhaps by 5th September we may even be able to post a virtual global exhibition of our own!

Photo's of the Meccano models on show see links below.

Winner of the 2019 Michael Adler Founder's Prize is Steve Briancourt (UK) with the USS Missouri
