"Renault "Messenger B120"" by PMcam235 - 05/05/2013
221.161 bytes
Description
scale 1/14
designed in 1993 and first described by Jack Partridge in NMMG bulletin #70, then CAM bulletin #50

"low cost model", i.e. contains no expensive part like 63, 140, and so on ...

The challenge at the time of the design was to build a technically correct model with the only parts from the available sets from Meccano in 1993 (mainly Evolution 6 and motorcycle).
This explains some curious design, especially for the front bumper where red strips were not available in 11 holes for example.

main features:
differential
propeller shaft
steering
front and rear suspension (original Renault parabolic leaf springs replaced with trailing arms, midle arms and Panhard bars)

some simulations for still unavailable VM parts:

* 120d shock absorber (qty 6)
* battery box
* the rear towing hook should be the thick molded zamak one (unavailable)

IMPORTANT WARNING:
the VM file contains one part # 45a
only VM 2.0.4 and higher can open it
(older versions crash)
