|These instructions describe the construction of an immense model of the Fishguard Titan Block-setting crane which has for generations been the most iconic of Meccano subjects, and Peter Harwood's model is acknowledged to be the finest and most accurate representation of it ever, built to 0.35" to the foot to utilise the geared roller bearing plate at exact scale, and everything works! The model was designed from scratch in every detail, down to the size of the individual gears, using the original engineering drawings of 1914-16, with input from the best-known Meccano crane experts.
These very comprehensive instructions are in six sections, intended to be followed consecutively, with every assembly, sub-assembly and detail illustrated by two-dimensional drawings with extensive reference to the 1914-16 plans and close-up colour photographs. There are three booklets totaling 116 pages.
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.
