September 2024 Meeting

Saturday 7 September 2024
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 and our resident Meccano dealer Ted Muggridge will have new and used parts for sale.

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 Page Three Models Secretary’s Challenge

This Challenge is the conclusion of a trilogy started by Chris Fry in September 2008 and continued by Brian Leach in January 2020, with a model from the Page 1 and Page 2 parts list from the 1970s instruction manual respectively.

The new Challenge, also from Brian, is to build any model from parts 146 to 235f only which appear on page 3 of the 1970s parts list. When we say page 3, we mean the back page of the manuals of that era.
