Meccano Boy

Yep, it was madness to sell off the collection back in '03 but there you go. While I'm generally not comfortable with atavistic impulses, this one I'm indulging big-time. It's really rather fun translating the shapes in your head into the steel framework, wheels, tracks, motors, drive train etc.

This is a hell of a lot more eductional than nintendo, and the engineering is still sound.

The ATV Ceilidh's posted pictures of has evolved a bit in the last couple of days, and now has Ackermann steering (look that one up). It's going to be a model of an M3 halftrack which if I'm lucky will be recognisable.

Ah well, back to work.
