These instructions describe the building of a model based on a typical 1950ís vehicle at a scale of about 1/12th. Vehicles of this era had cabs of various designs; this has the ERF cab which has a relatively modern appearance.
The model requires a modest collection of parts and can be constructed, with a few additions (mainly small flexible plates) with a Set 10.
Two small 12v motors are used to power the rear axle and the mixer independently. The rear axle is based upon the standard Meccano differential.
The design includes a 3-speed and reverse gearbox and clutch based on the model of a saloon car in the Set 10 instructions 10.4 (1949). The model is constructed in three stages: chassis, cab and rotating cement mixer. Both cab and mixer are removable.
16 pages including text, colour photographs and parts list.
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.
