The 14 Parts Plus Semi-Circular Plates Only Secretary’s Challenge
This Challenge was ‘borrowed’ from the Christchurch Meccano Club in New Zealand. The challenge, which they ran in Spring 2007, was to build a model using no more than fourteen separate Meccano parts. In addition members could use any number of part 37 (nut and bolt) and any number of part 214 (semi-circular plate). Most members have a box full of these in an assortment of colours so it was interesting to see what uses they could can find for this very common part.
