Hello!

Please be sure to look at my other auctions! I have many more unusual and experimental model kits, collectibles and rare space items listed this week!

Look in our store under Airship Aviation & Space.

This is a rare Meccano Erector Crazy Inventor's Airship Building set.

Item has been out of production for 10 years and sought after by collectors.

The airship has a victorian look to it when built.

This set is unbuilt and still new in box.

With 357 parts made of steel, plastic, rubber, wood and vinyl. Box has light shelfwear from age

My last set sold in the spring of 2009 on eBay for over $320.00.

The buyer's used the set to build up a model for their Steampunk theme wedding.

The Airship was their center piece.

The finished model is quite large with the envelope measuring appro 28" long. See photos of built ship.

Item is motorized and features 3 spinning props and mechanical flapping wings.

Please note: Item does not fly but it sure looks like it should. Pictures of built model are for reference, The build ship was sold to a collector for an undisclosed sum.

Builder tip: Consider adding some small amber lights or LEDs to dress up the craft.
