The Meccano Race Truck 4X4 De Course is a 225 piece building set that builds one spring-loaded dirt race truck. The pieces in this set can build 10 race truck models. Instructions for three models are included in the manual and other ideas can be found online. We have built a dune buggy style race truck. Spring-loaded front and back wheels allow this truck to tackle anything in its path. This building set comes with real metal and plastic pieces and two tools to help you screw all the pieces into place.
The Meccano sets are great building sets that encourage engineering and robotics. The building of this also helps reinforce hand-eye coordination, fine motor skills, and overall focus. The finished product is a sturdy play toy that kids will love to display and add to their collection of race trucks.
The Meccano race Truck 4X4 took us about 2 hours to build. This is for ages 8 and up. This is ideal for tweens and teens.
This set can build 10 various race truck models. Instructions for three models are included in this set while the rest can be found online.
