Groundhog
I got gifted a Meccano kit this Christmas, a Ducati.
Nice kit with new tools that made it a bit easier to build, but annoyingly a missing part for the windscreen. I've had that with a couple of Meccano kits now.

That's annoying Groundhog. Looks good though. What's build time on a kit like that? :-) G

Groundhog
HappyG(rrr) it took me about 3-4 hours on Christmas day so that might have been affected by booze and food intake. Meccano can be frustratingly fiddly sometimes and this was the case with this kit as some of the nuts need to be held in difficult to reach places, while holding the rest of the part and turning a screw. It's easy if you happen to be a weird alien with three tiny hands. I did enjoy it though and I like the look of the bike.

It was a bar at the top of the windscreen
