|Instructions describing the construction of a 1:12 scale model of a Cowans Sheldon 60-ton Dockside Electric Crane in Sturrock Dry Dock, Cape Town, South Africa. The overall construction and mechanisms closely follow the prototype in function, situation and appearance, and the model is built almost entirely in standard Liverpool-era Meccano parts. Standing at over 6' tall from table to top of jib, it is of a class of traditional Meccano super-models that draw crowds at exhibitions.
The plan has 56 pages in total, with building instructions and over 50 colour photographs of the prototype and model, with separately-stapled IsoMec-diagram booklet and parts list. It includes a CROM containing the photographs in full resolution and a video of the model working.
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.
