Meccano Model Images

The images on this page are a subjective collection of images of various Meccano \ Erector models that I like.

Horizontal Steam Engine by Dave Harvey

The model is a horizontal steam engine, powered by a small faulhaber motor.  It comes complete with boiler and water tank. Originally it was only going to be a project to build a realistic looking steam cylinder after I found a box of lollipop sticks at work which we use for gluing and was challenged by a workmate to build a model incorporating them!  With the challenge set I built the cylinder during my lunch breaks at work  just to prove to him that it could be done.  The project escalated and within a month I had a full working steam engine motion.
