“Frank Hornby: the boy who made $1,000,000 with a toy.”
These are the first words in what could be called The Meccano Story.
In 1898, Frank Hornby invented a toy for his two sons using nuts, bolts and other random parts, and the boys’ imaginations were awakened. Meccano still specialises in creating realistic vehicles today, and both adults and children all over the world get fired up playing with Meccano Maker Systems.
Build, re-build and create, with the Tactical Copter Kit! This set allows you to create not one, but two different helicopters from all-metal pieces. Kids can discover a whole world of engineering opportunities as they build a helicopter with a working winch, rotating, foldable rotor and retractable landing gear, then take it apart to build a glider!
Everything needed to build these rotorcrafts are included in this kit – but don’t let the step-by-step instructions limit your child from taking their new-found building skills to new heights. The same Meccano parts can be used again to build absolutely anything at all, all that's needed is, well, your child's imagination!
Tactical Copter Kit features:
- Recommended for children aged ten years and over.
- Made in France.
- Kit contains 374 all-metal pieces, tools and instructions.
- Two real tools help children to construct their helicopter.
- Two-in-one design allows children to create both a helicopter or glider.
- Parts come together to build a tactical helicopter with a working winch, rotating, foldable rotor and retractable landing gear.
- Presented in a Meccano box.
