What is Meccano?
Since 1898, Meccano have created model construction systems consisting of reusable metal strips, plates, wheels, axles and gears, with nuts and bolts to connect the pieces. It is the perfect system for children to learn how to put models together and is loved by people of all ages. Generally, each kit can be made into several different models and, as such, is a very versatile kit to build with.
How long will it take me to build these models?
Build time will depend on the complexity of what you are building. You could finish a simpler model such as the trolley jack in 10 minutes, or spend an hour building more complex models such as the desert dune buggy or the chase helicopter. Of course, the build time will also depend on how confident you are at constructing the kits.
Is this compatible with other kits?
The desert adventure kit is compatible with other metal Meccano kits. This means you can carry on building and let your imagination run wild to build mega-structures as well as bigger and better vehicles.
