Bernie Storey's Meccano Car

Bernie writes: "I have been a Meccanoman for over 55 years and still get much pleasure from my fairly extensive collection of parts.

I recently introduced my two grandchildren to Meccano and was much surprised at how well my grand daughter, aged 5 was able to manipulate the small parts including doing up nuts and set screws. They helped me build a little car and insisted on adding seats and roof to which they then fixed a rotor 'so it could fly'. Whether they will ever persevere with this hobby is anyone’s guess but it is certainly encouraging that it seems some of my genes have been passed on!"
