Abbey Pumping Station - Meccano Magic



I visited the Abbey Pumping Station for Meccano Magic a celebration of the well known construction toy.
The large hall was packed with many different colourful and intricate models created by enthusiasts from the wide variety of shapes and colours available in the Meccano range.
Many of the designs had been crafted without instructions showing the creativity of their creators.
On one table sat a model of the Millennium Falcon from Star Wars which its creator believed to be the only one of its kind in existence and had been created purely from photographs of the iconic spacecraft.
Other models on show included steam engines, cranes, Red Arrow and Spitfire planes and even remote control cars all created using the construction toy.
My film aims to capture the atmosphere of the popular event and features just a small selection of the models on show.
