Tobias Sunneräng's Merkur Brooklands Racer
Tobias writes: "I was interested in metal construction systems at the age of maybe 10 or 12, when my father bought some TRIX-metallbau. Nowadays he has a small collection of Meccano (Erector). I like the quality feeling you get with the sturdy plates etc, that you get with Merkur.
Since I'm not a 100% purist, I've added some elements to my merkursystem:
On the blue brooklands racing car, the exhaust / sidepipe is made by using the brass coupling from an ordinarie 'sugarcube' electrical coupling. The ones I've found have the 10mm spacing & 3,5mm thread that Merkur uses. This part can be used to fasten strips to axles."
