Meccano Models

Some examples of our favourite Meccano models

Michael Walker has sent me a video recording of the 1985 Midlands Meccano Guild model tour, which is on this page here.

Some videos of various New Zealand Meccano exhibitions are available on this page here.

There a new page showing photographs of models designed by Andreas Konkoly, one of the most famous of all Meccano builders. You can find it by clicking here.

The biennial New Zealand Meccano exhibition was held in Upper Hutt over the Easter weekend of 2007. Pictures and video from the exhibition are on a page by themselves here.
