Carriage Clock

Built by Brian Leach

Almost to scale. There is only enough space inside for the 12:1 reduction between the minute and hour hand. So the clock is powered from outside. It was first shown at the Heath Robinson museum so this is quite appropriate. The outside system is a 100...

Galaxy

Built by Guy Loveridge

This model is remarkable because of the scale; 1:10 billion trillion. I am claiming that in terms of scale only it is the smallest Meccano model ever made. The galaxy slowly rotates, powered by a Meccano motor via a worm gear.

Ferris Wheel

Built by Richard Marsden

This model came about by accident. I was experimenting with Pythagorean triangles when I realised that 15,26,30 is so close to a right-angled triangle that slack in the bolt holes would cover the difference. So I made one, then another one to put along...

0-6-2 Tank Locomotive

Using the same ideas as for my model of a 2-4-2 Tank , this is based on an ex-Welsh Valley Railway locomotive, though with this model I was able to make it represent the prototype more accurately. The difficulty was modelling the splasher over the le...
