2007 Radio Control Car

(a dust cover snake skin

This is a Meccano Radio Control car built from a set sold by John Lewis department stores for Christmas 2007. The set came with instructions for building three different body styles. Each body style is of monoque construction and bolts onto the ready built chassis. Most of the pieces are standard Meccano parts although many are different from those of my youth.The design is cleverly worked out to get such a curvaceous shape on a relativity small model. Much use is made of the new highly flexible strips and plates, particularly the flexible gusset plate p/n 201 to make the smooth curves. The car goes like a rocket and has front, rear and under body lights.
