These instructions describe the construction of a model showing the 5 largest moons of Saturn as well as the planet itself (rotating) and a representation of the rings. The period of the rings' revolutions varies not only from ring to ring but also within rings, the tiny particles within the rings behaving as mini moonlets with outer particles having a longer revolutionary period. In the model the ring shown has the same period of rotation as Saturn, roughly corresponding with the prototype.
12 pages describe the construction, give technical data and provide a gearing diagram and five colour photographs, The model can be built with the contents of a standard Meccano Set 10 so no parts list is included.
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.
