Comments: Secretary MWT Meccano Club. Convention Easter 19 I have made a series of aircraft models from 0 through 9 sets to demonstrate the progressive nature of Meccano sets back then. I like the Cargoplane set 8 .13 that looks like a Hercules. My instuctions book is missing the 2nd page of instructions. Looking for it. Greetings Tim. Robin.

Comments: I got your address from The Australian Hornby Collector Magazine and was blown away by the amount of Meccano information on the one site. Thank you.

Comments: I'm just wondering if a list of the maximum parts in several sets would be a possible addition.
E.g. what is the largest parts total in the #10 over the years -- this would include the prewar obsolete parts and the 1978 exchanges in addition to the usual list.
Alternative, what is the parts required to make a super set of the 7, L and 10?

Comments: Thank you for your website. Engineering Drawings are precious for me, cause I make some parts to complete my set. MECCANO manuals are necessary to improve my Meccano experience. Long life to your site!

Comments: The WWW is a wonderful thing for the curious! I stumbled upon this site after Googling a mention of 'Meccano Set 8' by Adrian Oldknow in an email. (The circumstances of which had to do with articles he has written about the Micro:Bit - another British invention I stumbled upon courtesy a friend.)
WOW! I have now reserved much of my weekend to explore these pages.
We are trying to reinstill an interest in 'thinkering' at our makerspaces in the US. It is hard to compete with electronic devices, but with resources like this website and the recent urgency here to reform our school system I am hopeful we will succeed.
THANK YOU! for maintaining these volumes for posterity and for inspiring youth to put down their devices and make stuff!

Comments: Absolutely fantastic website. I used to build Meccano models about 60 years ago when I wer'a lad. I am sure this early understanding went a long way to enabling me to become an engineer. This website has certainly rekindled my interest. Amazing website - keep up the good work.
