Meccanoid

Built by Santiago Plicio

In a quick dash to exhibit something out of my usual norm for the summer Modellers Exhibition in Midhurst in June 2018, just seven days before it I started work on a small experimental mechanical model I had created recently and decided to use it as th...

0-6-2 Tank Locomotive

Built by Adrian Ashford

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...

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...

Built for the Games Secretary's ChallengeMonopoly

Built by Guy Loveridge

Just the board, none of the money or other accessories. The layout, colours and symbols on the board are represented as closely as possible with parts available.

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.

Chevrolet Silverado Pickup Truck

Built by Alan Wenbourne

This kit model took me six hours to assemble, only to find that the Grille trim and Bumper were still in the box! The instructions made no mention of these parts, so another ½ hour was needed to fit them. The main problem with the truck is th...

Built by Alan Wenbourne

With working chain drive and steering. This is based on a model by Frank Weber that appeared in Constructor Quarterly some years ago. I had added it to my 'to make' list of models and recently found reason to re visit it. I added steering and made s...

Built by Tim Surtell

This simple but popular game was first sold by Milton Bradley in 1974. Two players take turns inserting their coloured discs into the grid, aiming to be the first to form a horizontal, vertical or diagonal line of four of their own discs. My use of re...

2-4-2 Tank Locomotive

Built by Adrian Ashford

This model was inspired by an article in the May 2018 issue of Hornby Magazine about adding extras to a Bachman 4mm scale model of an ex-Lancashire and Yorkshire Railway locomotive of this wheel arrangement. A number of the pre-grouping railways bui...

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...

Doom Fairground Ride

Built by Santiago Plicio

It's not the end of the world, I know, but it still feels a little like doom, the thought of attending a Meccano club meeting without a new model to show, and for the first time ever I found myself actually contemplating it. With June 2018 only half d...

Built for the Games Secretary's ChallengeLost In Space

Built by Chris Fry

I had been thinking of making this model for some time since acquiring a copy of New Wood Puzzle Designs by James W. Follette. Can the spaceship negotiate the complex gravity field of the star and escape to make further explorations? I have to sa...
