MODEL BUILDING INSTRUCTIONS and SET MANUALS

A NOTE TO ALL MODEL BUILDERS:
Although we have categorized the instructions for individual models according to their original system, most of these models can be closely, if not completely duplicated with other systems. For example, with some creative engineering and/or part substitution the Marklin and Meccano models can be built with Ami-Lac or Merkur sets, and vice versa. So, if you're looking for a new and interesting building project, check out all of the options below.
