January 2008 Meeting

Saturday 19 January 2008
Eltham United Reformed Church

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 Executive Toys Secretary’s Challenge

This Challenge was an idea from Cathy Warrell — construct the perfect Christmas gift for the high-flying businessman — the executive toy. Popular in the 1980s and 1990s, members could build the classic Newton’s Cradle or any number of chrome plated figures balancing on stands or revolving. Or they could come up with a design of their own.
