I don't see meccano anymore. Perhaps it died out. But I do see Lego Technic is alot more affordable to 15 years ago.
Loved Meccano as a kid!

Yup that stuff was brilliant. Had it not been for that I doubt I would have ever learned how to fix/build and repair bikes tbh. That gave you some real tools and taught you how to use them. My bro had a digger. I remember tying the strings to it so it would lift the bucket.

Always remember the catalogs had models with step by step instructions however in the back, you had other designs like sports cards which had no instructions, only 3 pictures from different angles. Building them based on just those 3 pictures had my brain firing on all 4 cylinders.

Real creative thinking was needed.

Hi

Can you help me, I have completed my first pack and as you can see by my pictures the right hand side is slightly bent, does anyone know why this is?

The building was really fun and it was amazing to see this beast grow in size.

Took me about 30 odd hours over 3 days but seeing as I was on holiday and the snow stopped us going anywhere I have to say it was perfect timed.



Here's the link to the build log - https://imgur.com/a/QCZUQ

Please bear in mind that the pics are taken with a mobile so some of them are really poor quality for which you have my apologies.

Anyway, enjoy!

Paul
