For a window onto the world of Meccano, try the Meccano web ring www.meccanoweb.com/meccring hosted by U.K. enthusiast Melvyn Wright.

Probably the best - known address in the Meccano world was MW Models at 4, Greys Road, Henley on Thames where the inimitable Geoff Wright and his team catered for our needs for years. Since Geoff’s retirement Howard Somerville has taken over the distribution and production of lists, building instructions and allied Meccano–related material. Find him at www.mwmailorder.co.uk   

The most complete record of the post-Liverpool parts (Calais and Nikko) is on Oscar Felgueiras' web site. His research is also being published on CD; available so far is his "Meccano Sets 1998 - 2006" which covers the sets themselves and the manuals as well as the parts contained in them, Find his site at

There are several other sites of particular interest to builders and collectors. One currently being built in New Zealand by Charles Steadman, is the On Line Parts Museum. This aims to illustrate and categorize all known knowledge in the Meccano community about Meccano Parts, with variations in parts of particular interest. Authenticated contributions from all sources are welcome. The site address is http://www.nzmeccano.com
