The Birthday Models Secretary’s Challenge

This Challenge was taken from an idea by Rob Beijersbergen of the Netherlands, featured in International Meccanoman, which both Chris Fry and our Secretary spotted. It was simply this:

Members had to build a model published in the month and year of their birth (or as near as they could get). Ideally it would be from Meccano Magazine, but other Meccano-related magazines or a manual would have done. Members could modify their models if they wished. Apart from seeing a range of models from the past, this was also a crafty way of finding out how old everyone was!
