Modern Parts

Modern parts includes all the parts made by Meccano after the demise of the progressive sets (1 -10) that we all remember as kids and that got us all into a lifetime hobby. There are a lot of plastic parts but also many new metal parts have been introduced over that time. One of the sad things has been the almost total decrease of the use of brass, which to some of us provides the most interesting parts. Some of the newer plastic gears, had brass bosses but it was the introduction of the Tri-axle system that really changed the way the system evolved. 

Tri-axle parts have been with us now for nearly two decades. Love them or hate them they have been part of the system for long enough to become established. They first appeared in the motion system sets of 1999 and have been added to ever since. Bevel gears, universal joints and geared strips have all appeared in the last few years. One of the later sets (2016/7) includes a small bevel gear that I am sure will be much sought after. Some of these later parts are still thin on the ground and as most of our stock comes from buying in second hand, unwanted sets, it might take some time to accumulate a sales stock. Below are listed the parts we can supply at the moment. 

The next giant leap away from the system as we knew it was the introduction of the new Evolution sets in 2013 with their ¼ hole spacing and geometry. All these parts can be incorporated into traditional models and we have done so on many occasion.
