That makes a change...

Sue and I are constantly on the lookout for modern Meccano sets and over the years we must of bought hundreds of them, second-hand, from the usual places. Most of the time the boxes have been opened and maybe a couple of parts have been put together. Often the parts are unused but more often than not, the packets are still sealed. Today the postman arrived and delivered a parcel. Inside was the 2-model Multimodels  set. When I opened it, there still assembled in the box, was the bicycle, built properly and working!

The bicycle, fully built
Although it is good to receive mint-condition parts, it is sad to think that it was bought for someone who obviously didn't want it. In this case it is somewhat heartening to think there is at least one other person out there who still builds Meccano models straight from the box, even if they did sell it!
