Love it or hate it, Meccano is moving into the twenty-first century - See Meccano in 2016.
There are far too many new parts to list here, but a couple that need pointing out are the 'new' rubber rings that fit ¼ inch pulleys and the new caterpillar track. Before you all start shouting at the screen and raising your blood pressure, I do know that Meccano had a small rubber ring in the system before the war. However the guys in the design office probably think they invented it so I am not going to be the one to burst their bubble. The rubber ring has been around for a while in one of this year's starter sets, but as they have not exactly been readily available, and it only contained one, I am choosing to ignore that too!

|The next Thunderbird|
"What is the next after Thunderbird 2?" - Thunderbird 3! No other details yet, not even a mock-up box. We will let you know more details as soon as we get them.
There is more we can tell and that will be in Part 2, later this week. There are also some very exciting new models we can't talk about at the moment. As soon as we can we will post the details.
Ralph and Sue.
