Miscellaneous

1901 House
(Code: MP135)
7.20

These instructions describe the construction of a typically late Victorian/early Edwardian House and as detailed can be built within the contents of medium red/green No.10 Outfit of 1954 - except that around 100 additional Nuts & Bolts are required (subject to all remaining Long Bolts, and Nuts from Pivot Bolts, etc., being used up first). It Is also fitted with electrical lighting (just coming in 100 years ago amongst the better-off), but this is not included within the Outfit. An automatic reversing mechanism cyclically opens and closes the porch and veranda doors, and lights go on and off all round the house synchronised with the doors - the full cycle taking about 70 seconds, using a small Mains induction motor. These all add interest to an otherwise static model, for exhibitions, but the house could also be used as a dolls' house if desired - being at the correct required scale. of 1:16.

For access to the mechanism, housed in the roof, the latter is in one unit secured by only 3 Bolts, so is relatively easily removed and replaced.

 

Although based on exactly the same frame size as the 1937 No.10.9 Model "Modern House" it has a more rational layout, and in addition includes a first floor.

 

Illustrated with nine colour photographs, sixteen pages of instructions include:- Introduction; General Construction Notes; Frame; Front Bay Windows; Tower Windows and Tapered Roof; Front Wall; Veranda; Gable Bay Window; Gable Ends; Conservatory; Partitions; Landing; First Floor; Porch; Doors; Main Roof; Front Bay Roof; Mechanism; Lighting; and Parts List.

Tower Bridge  (Set10 model)
(Code: MP203)
5.90
A model building plan describing a development on Model 9.20 from the 1954 Set Manual, the most realistic of the Meccano factory-published models. This enhanced version is mounted on a base containing an automatic raising and lowering mechanism (which can be viewed from under the bascules) producing a very good exhibition model which can be enhanced by the addition of Elektrikit lighting. The model uses a mains induction motor, but the builder could use other types of motor.Please note these Model Plans are designed by individual Meccano modellers and may use parts not currently available.
