This model is reproduced by kind permission of Stefan Tokarski who designed and built the original model photos of which can be seen at:

I had to use simulations for the parts not available in VirtualMec and these are detailed below:

I used a 3 x 5 hole flat plate and a 5 hole perforated strip (coloured green on the model) to simulate part B665 the 4 x 5 hole flexible metal plate used in the Dumper chassis

I used 22 linked 1” narrow strips (coloured red and purple on the model) to simulate the 2 each of Part 273 the narrow curved strip 5 hole and Part 273a the narrow curved strip 7 hole used in the mans legs

I had to use 2 Part 90 curved strip 5 hole (coloured green on the model) to simulate part 90b the curved strip with end holes and long slot used on the mans body

I used 4 of ” washers in place of the slightly smaller diameter washers used on the mans head

I used 54 of 1” narrow strips together with 4 of 3½”, 4 of 5½” and 4 of 6½” narrow strips (bent to shape) to simulate the 70 of Part P91 Caterpillar track links used on the original model.

I used standard Meccano motors in place of the specific rpm motors
