Bedford 'O' Type Tipper Lorry
Built by Jim MacCulloch in September 2018
This is my much-modified version of model 5.1 from the 1954-61 manual, along the lines of Bob Watson's blue and yellow version seen in the Sheffield Meccano Guild Magazine.
By adding steering to the model, a totally new cab with cutaway bonnet to allow for the turning front wheels was needed.
The string-operated tipping mechanism of the manual model was changed to a screwed rod mechanism that simulates the usual hydraulic ram.
