Spanish Language Meccano Manuals

Details and Downloads of the Manuals

This section covers Spanish language instruction manuals for Meccano sets.

In 1932 a Spanish company`(Novedades Poch. SA) got permission to sell make and sell Meccano in Spain under licence. They then never added the extra parts subsequently introduced from Liverpool and consequently their manual models remained more less the same right to the 1960s. They did however issue a few Spanish Supermodel manuals. Other Spanish speaking markets (e.g. Argentina) were supplied by Meccano (Liverpool) in the usual way.

For more information on Spanish Meccano see the Metaling/Spanish Meccano page in the 'Other' Systems section of this website here.

The Meccano manuals below are split into two sections. Those issued by Meccano (Liverpool) and those issued by the Spanish Meccano company (Novedades Poch. SA).

Scans of other Spanish language manuals would be much appreciated.
