Welcome to Meccano Supplies
Meccano Oliver Tractor
The model is based on the Oliver tractor from
the 1940s and is driven by a small electric motor
with batteries in the engine bay. The front
wheels can be turned from the steering wheel
and the gear lever will operate the tractor
forward and reverse.
Meccano is the original Metal Construction Toy. But to many enthusiasts worldwide,
the Meccano System is often described as Engineering in Miniture.
The main idea of Meccano was in the beginning and still is today that the model
you build today can be dismantled and built into something different tomorrow
using the same parts with endless possibilities. The Meccano System consists of
perforated metal and plastic parts including strips, plates, girders, wheels,
brackets, gears, motors etc. plus nuts and bolts to hold everything together.
Meccano was first produced and patent granted to the inventor of the Meccano
System, Englishman Frank Hornby in 1901.
