Tony James'


Sliding Bed Car Recovery Truck


This model is a 1/10 scale version of a 2001 Ford IVECO truck with a Champion y/i ton slide bed, built as near as Meccano and the restrictions of a number ten set allow, the only extra being an electric motor. A two speed and reverse gear box is fitted, driving a strong pinion type differential. A power take-off supplies the sliding platform, the tilt and locking mechanism and the loading winch. The sliding platform stops automatically at each end of its travel. The IVECO crew cab is Meccano friendly, being    much    'squarer'   than    its contemporaries. Instructions for a simple van "load" are included, using some of the parts remaining in the set. A complete list of parts required is included.
