This model started as a test bed for motors. One experiment was to couple a 6V motor and battery case to a tractor type base, with ackermann steering and a differential gear. This works well and uses low profile tyres from the 1999 crane set.


Hi Brian, Sorry to disturb you. I am interested in building some remote control toys using Meccano. I would like to use Ackerman Steering on my buggies. I have found title=SML_01_New_Meccano_Motor_Chassis_1928.ModelPlan Can you point me in the direction of any other plans or kits I can buy? Thank you for your time. Tony.
