These instructions describe the construction of a 1/10 scale version of a 2001 Ford IVECO truck with a Champion y/i ton slide bed, built as near as Meccano and the restrictions of a Meccano Set10 allow, the only extra being an electric motor. A two speed and reverse gear box is fitted, driving a strong pinion type differential. A power take-off supplies the sliding platform, the tilt and locking mechanism and the loading winch. The sliding platform stops automatically at each end of its travel. The IVECO crew cab is Meccano friendly, being much 'squarer' than its contemporaries. Instructions for a simple van "load" are included, using some of the parts remaining in the set.
A 20 page booklet of instructions and close-up colour photographs is accompanied by a second 12 page booklet of drawings 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.
