From the very early days of “The International Meccanoman”, the journal of the International Society of Meccanomen, “Model Building Technology” has been a must-read feature for any keen Meccano builder. Sharing the latest hints and tips on Meccano model building from beginner to advanced level, or providing information about the theory behind prototypes, Model Building Technology allows any builder to improve their modelling.

Many thanks for the details of the electronic MBT. I had been wondering what had happened to it. This must certainly feature in some way in the next issue of IM, and by copy of this email I’m asking Adrian whether this should be as a small article, or as part of the ‘Nuts & Bolts’ feature.
Can I just mention that the link in your text has an error; the l of model is missing which causes the link to fail.
I must also apologize that we haven’t used any of your submissions for ‘Nuts & Bolts’ recently. We have had the luxury of too much material for recent issues and this has squeezed this feature out. I have recently agreed with Adrian that this should be avoided in future, as I think it’s a good link between the clubs, and encourages people at a local level to know that their activities are important in the context of the wider Meccano world. We plan from now on to allocate two pages in each issue to this article, so keep your submissions coming.
I have to offer my apologies once again for absence from this weekend’s AGM, as I shall be working that day (at both ends of it!). I probably won’t be around next year either. I am sending Adrian a few comments about the magazine which he can incorporate into his editor’s report.
All good wishes Nigel
