Meccano Manuals 1908 - 1981

1945-1947

Detailed changes to the manuals during the 1947

In 1947 the manuals had a minor revision. The majority were seen in the 1/47 manuals although a few did not get changed till the next printing (Query - did this affect all manuals of a printing or just some?).
Several models had errors in their parts lists corrected and several models also had the building instructions amended slightly, to clarify certain points or correct errors. The models involved were ('T' signifies text change, 'F' signifies text formatting change and 'P' signifies parts list change). For more details see below:-
