March 2021 Meeting

Saturday 27 March 2021
12:00 noon – 5:00pm

Falconwood Community Centre
31–39 Falconwood Parade
DA16 2PG

This is one of our informal quarterly meetings where our members show off their latest Meccano creations.

Light refreshments will be available.

At around 2:00pm we will have a short committee meeting, followed by the Model Tour in which members are invited to give a short talk about their models — in particular their entries for the Secretary’s Challenge!

You are welcome to come along to view the models and chat to our members. If you want to bring along a model of your own, we’d love to see it! Only if you attend our meetings regularly will you be asked to pay our annual subscription charge.

Please contact our Secretary Chris Warrell if you would like membership information, or just turn up at this meeting if you’re curious and are thinking of joining us.

The Two Different Parts Only Secretary’s Challenge

In this Challenge you can build a model of any subject. The restriction is that you have to choose two different parts and the model has to be made from any number of those two parts.

You can use as many nuts, bolts (any length or type including grub screws etc.) and washers as you like. The parts have to have their own unique Meccano part number so, for instance, if you choose part № 1, 12½” Perforated Strip and part № 1a, 9½” Perforated Strip then you have to make the entire model from those!

Good luck!
