Comments: I picked up your flier at Model Rail Scotland. I have two flat wooden boxes and metal desk containing Meccano parts which were stored for many years in a loft, so are rather discoloured and some pieces a bit rusty. I'm sure it would clean up well. I would be happy to give it all away for free to anybody who may wish and is able to collect from Glasgow (near Botanic Gardens). I started with the red & green 60s pieces up to about Set 5 then bought a number of individual parts from Liverpool, including yellow and blue parts and various engineering components, gear wheels etc. I also got a load of it second hand from a junk shop c1970, probably 50s style with the sharp cornered silver pieces etc. These are the slightly rusty ones. There are also two stationery steam engines, one Meccano and one Mamod, not steamed for years but which should be in working order. If anyone is interested please Email me. I would give the society itself first refusal, then any of your members. If you give me an Email address I can take and send some photos if this is helpful. Regards Tom.

Comments: Does your Meccano, 10-in-1 Racing Vehicles STEM Model Building Kit with 225 Parts and Real Tools, Kids Toys for Ages 8 and Up come with instructions in Spanish? I'm friends with a family of recently-arrived Colombian refugees, and their son speaks and reads only Spanish. His birthday comes up in June and I'd like to give him this Meccano set.

Comments: I have a very comprehensive Meccano set dating from the 1950's contained in its own four drawer wooden cabinet. Many of the nuts, bolts and smaller parts are stored within tins dating from the same period. clockwork and electric motor and hornby/meccano transformer with period plug. I am seeking advice from knowledgeable person and considering a possible sale.

Comments: Last year I inherited from the friend of a distant relative, a large set which is made up of almost entirely high quality stainless steel parts. I haven't seen anything like this before so was wondering if there was any history behind this particular set.

Comments: First Meccano set was a #5 as a Christmas present in 1947. 1st model was built that day with a lot of help from Dad, which was the Derrick Crane (5.20). Plates blue with sharp corners !! I now have a grandson(5) & a collection of parts and we have had a go at some small models together. He likes it more than Lego, and from Timothy, I got instructions for sets 1,2&3, but his site no longer seems to work ?? and grandson wants instruction for set #4. Help !!
