OM    Our Meccano (John Westwood)

 

In this comprehensive work, John reveals how genius in the detail designing of individual parts enabled Meccano to develop from a crude toy into a great adult hobby, with today's modelbuilders brilliantly proving its ongoing capacity.

 

He also explores the history of the company, the Meccano community, societies, dealers, literature, software, rival and compatible systems, and famous Meccanomen and their models… all in 109 lavishly illustrated pages.
