Models built for the 'Pocket Meccano Set X N' Secretary's Challenge

The Challenge:

This Challenge has come from Chris Fry.  He calls it the 'Pocket Meccano Set x N' - build a model using only parts from the Pocket Meccano set parts list - but use as many of the included parts as you like.  (In 2006 we ran a Pocket Meccano Challenge, but using the contents of a single kit.  There were six entries then - let's see if we can do better this time.)
