Italian Electric Locomotive E 424

Italian Electric Locomotive E 424

9.60


Instructions for the construction of a detailed, 1:12 scale model of one of the most popular Italian Electric Locomotives in service between 1938 and 2007.

The model includes a section of track and is compatible with other 5½" gauge railway models.

The many realistic details include working trolleys, stairs, handrails, intakes, headlights, whistle, windscreen wipers, opening doors, interior cabin fittings and drive controls and buffers and tow hooks. The bogies, which are very unusual, match the real thing.

28 pages of text with 12 pages of colour photographs.


Please note these Model Plans are designed by individual Meccano modellers and may use parts not currently available. The level of instruction detail is dependent on the original modeller and varies from plan to plan. These are instructions only.

Jones KL66 Mobile Crane

18.60

This iconic model, a Meccano Ltd. competition winner, was designed by Hugh Henry in 1955 and first published as an MW ModelPlan (MP101) in 1998.

With the help of Richard Payn, who has rebuilt this complex model and incorporated many detail improvements, Mike Edkins has published new and vastly more detailed and clearer building instructions, now published as a set of 5 booklets, with text, isometric drawings and nearly 100 photographs.

The plan is in two parts, covering the undercarriage and superstructure separately.

The complete model weighs approx. 28lb and copies all the features and functions of the original KL66.

Weight-Driven Striking Clock

Weight-Driven Striking Clock

8.60

This instruction Modelplan has 28 pages including full-size colour photographs and isometric diagrams, parts list, with a 4-page article by co-developer John Stark.

The clock is fitted with a count wheel striking system and seconds dial indicating true jump seconds. A single stage of gearing connects the seconds and escape wheel shafts, eliminating the need for the “missing” 30-tooth escape wheel, the lack of which has been voiced by many Meccano clock builders over the years. Both winding drums of the going and striking trains are fitted with maintaining gear.

Skeleton Clock

Skeleton Clock

7.60

20 page instructions for constructing this timepiece which was a Meccano 'first'. By the ingenious use of a single Meccano 'Magic' clockwork motor in conjunction with a fusee and spring barrel to compensate for the motor's weakening output as it unwinds, the clock runs for at least 24 hours on a single winding, and for 30 when the passing strike is turned off.
The elegant, ornate framework is based on a John Wilding design and shows the inner workings of the clock mechanism.
Includes 18 colour photographs and parts list, plus a separately-stapled booklet of isometric diagrams.
