Models built for the 'Something Else' Secretary's Challenge

The Challenge:

This Challenge is to take one of your Meccano sets that have instructions for only one or two models, and build something else with it. The new model shouldn't be of the same type.

For example, you might use one of the tinned robots, dismantle it and build something non-robotic with it; or take the Red Arrows aeroplane and build something other than a plane with it.
