This was one of our informal quarterly meetings where our members showed off their latest Meccano creations.
At around 2:00pm we had a short committee meeting, followed by the Model Tour in which members were invited to give a short talk about their models — in particular their entries for the Secretary’s Challenge!
The Film and TV Secretary’s Challenge
This Challenge was to build a model of something from a film or TV programme.
For instance, it could be a Dalek or the Sonic Screwdriver from Doctor Who, one of the Thunderbirds, Inspector Morse’s Jaguar, the Batmobile, or a gadget or vehicle from one of the James Bond films. In fact, it was seeing pictures from the new Bond film that gave our Secretary the idea for this Challenge.
As long as the item was identified with one particular TV show or film, then that was acceptable.
