|These instructions describe the construction of a large model which was featured on the front covers of Meccano instruction manuals from 1954 to 1961.
The model has five movements - walking, slewing, luffing, hoisting and dragging - all independently operated from one Meccano E20R (or E15R) electric motor, or modern ME12R motor, via levers grouped at one side of the model.
18 pages of text, diagrams and parts list are accompanied by a 16 page booklet of colour and b/w 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.
