Lorry Chassis

This is a further model on the theme of lorries with prefabricated cabs, and shows the typical build for a chassis. The steering, this time, is operated by a bevel gear pair 30a and 30c as shown; this uses the long rod ideas shown in some of my earlier models and it works well. It replaces the contrate and pinions that I used in some of the earlier models.

The chassis will work with the Spinmaster-type tyres and Meccano tyres of various types, but the 1978 three part wheels foul the cab structure, which needs a redesign.
