From miniaturized automobile and aircraft engines to scale replicas of guns and demonstrations can be found Saturday at the Mid-East Ohio Model Engineering Expo.

All the models at the event are fully operational and took hours of dedication and a steady hand from their crafters. Paul Debolt, president of Debolt Machine Inc. said that creating these allows a deeper understanding of the engineering behind it.

"When you break something down, and scale it down, to a model size you really get a real sharp perspective on what goes into the design and why it runs or works the way it does " said Debolt.

The event runs Saturday, October 18th from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. at the Muskingum County Fairgrounds.
