Hi - When I was 6 in 1948 my father gave me a no.6 meccano set. I had hours of fun with this and made all manner of models. Later in life I became a CDT teacher and one of my hobbies has been renovating and constructing "classic" motorcycles. There would seem to be a connection here.
I purchased this set for my grandson who is 8 hoping that he would have the same pleasure that I had. I was dissappointed with the set due to the limited number of parts. It seems that in order to supply an electric motor which must have been expensive the number of construction sections has been reduced. This rather detracts from the point of the excercise. - trevot Taylor.
PS, this is no reflection on the good service given by Amazon.
