Mike Crump  

When I bought my Meccano set 10 in 2002, I had not been near the hobby for some years. I also realised that my skill level had never been very high, since I had always left a trail of unsuccessful models in my wake. So I proposed to start from as low as set 2, working from the simplest model I could find up to the next one (using the number of nuts in the parts list as a very rough guide to the complexity of each model). Only after some time did I think of photographing each one. The results (very much warts and all) will be displayed in this gallery, alongside other models I picked up along the way from Meccano Magazine, Constructor Quarterly, Elektrikit, and other sources). I may add some comments on each as time permits, as a guide to anyone else planning on doing something similar.
