TEE Publishing, in England, sells back volumes of ME. I've found them to be a thoroughly reliable company to deal with. (Usual disclaimers). They have a web site, somewhere.

A fellow in texas (caldwell industries I think) had the first six or so years plus 1933 reprinted in the seventies.

Very interesting reading. The loco Como, completely scale, and built with mostly hand tools by a doctor was described in the first volume.

In that day great interest was shown in powerplants to operate "home generating plants" and power plants to operate the home shop.

The mag was called model engineer and ameature electrician.

These reprints may be on ebay or at amazon???

Good luck finding them.

Check a large public library nearby. Minneapolis,MN has bound issues from 1897 to date.
