Toy crane - survived 40 years!

Post #1 by modelman093 » Sun Feb 20, 2011 11:14 pm

Not strictly a model but a toy that I made for my nephew 40 years ago. Cut and glued from sheet plywood with Meccano mechanical bits. Base was tested by me standing on it - 13 stone!
Now about to see service with his sister's son !
