Models built for the 'Page One Models' Secretary's Challenge

The Challenge:

This challenge is an idea from Chris Fry. It is to construct a model from the first page of the 1970-78 list of parts i.e. parts 1 to 50 inclusive.  That gives you strips, angle girders, axle rods, various brackets, pulleys, most of the gears, nuts and bolts, etc.  What you don't get is any plates or tyres.

For the full list look at the back of one of the old manuals.
