An astonishingly well made remote control tank, with a full working gearbox for steering, no cheating with two motors.
An enormous telescopic mobile crane model. Seriously this was huge.
A very agile digger, the operator did an impressive demo driving it up to a step and lifting itself up with the bucket. Lovely set of home-made tracks on this one.
This was a perfectly balanced bridge model. The weighted carriage (foreground) counter-balances the bridge as it lifts or lowers.
Another ingenious bridge design brilliantly modelled, this one rolls up to a hexagon on the left bank of the “canal”.
Liberator (Blakes' 7) and Enterprise (Star Trek) in the background. In the foreground, James May's Meccano bridge, somewhat perversely, modelled in Meccano.
Part of the local scenery at Kew Bridge Steam Museum, the venue for the Meccano exhibit, this is the Standpipe Tower, a kind of giant upside-down u-bend.
London's last running steam locomotive apparently.
