Airline Scissor Lift Catering Truck

 

A Set 10 Model

 

Based on a real vehicle, the 1:10 scale model is powered by a Meccano PDU motor and has a clutch, 2-speed and reverse gearbox, differential, correctly-geared steering, four screw jacks and a simulated hydraulic scissors mechanism to raise the van body well above cab height.  Two opening doors and a transparent roof panel enhance the bodywork.

 

The chassis has the correct wheel size, wheelbase and overhangs, and the scale-size body has a fixed bridge platform serviced by a sliding door.

 

20 pages including colour photographs and parts list, plus a separately-stapled  12-page booklet of diagrams.
