Hylary Smith's Meccano Heavy Truck

Hylton Smith writes: "Heavy duty units are another popular subject for model building. Here is an example built for exhibition purposes some time back again by my twin brother Hylary with his large Meccano collection. The chassis detail is shown separately. The tyres used are solid ash tray tyres, and fitted the Meccano three inch pulley wheels perfectly, the model included a tipping mecanism. It took the two of us to carry this large and heavy model. This heavy unit was powered by a Meccano 20volt motor. I am sure that a lot of model builders out there will appreciate this fine example of the model builders art. Kind regards to you and all those model builders out there."
