The model consisted of a hinged plate (part № 198) standing on its two long edges to simulate that well-loved, much praised and skilfully executed piece of installation art — Tracy Emin’s tent!

Scrawled all over the original were the names of all the people that Emin had — shall we say — been camping with, and it cost many thousands, though it is thought to have been lost in a fire a few years ago. What a shame. Luckily, the Meccano model was even better. Offers over 100,000 pounds invited!

Unfortunately we do not have any images or videos of this model.
