      Do not get you child this, if someone has O.C.D this is great

      When my mother brought this for my son at Christmas I couldn't wait to get it open. My childhood was dominated by meccano. I loved this toy building and constructing little pieces of metal with minute nuts and bolt. 20 years on nothing has changed only the minute nuts and bolts now seem microscopic. I was very excited and ne and my son sat down after Christmas dinner to build a truck. It only had 10 steps so it couldn't be that hard. 4 hours later we were on the same truck. It was 5 hours 47 minutes before we, well I finally finished, and my son nearly died of boredom he went to play with his 00 gauge intercity 125, After completing my masterpiece I went to show him only to find the cab dethatched itself from the wheels, after fixing it back the wheels wouldn't turn. I really did feel like throwing it at the wall nothing was working or fitting together as it was supposed to. After looking through the instructions for a 9th time, I found that Ii was using the wrong size washer on the wheels. So I combed my battered digits through the contents of the box and discovered the washers I needed didn't even exist. With this I Through the truck in the box and it went in the cupboard. I went in to this hoping to do something with my son. He got so fed up he left. I went in hoping to achieve a playable truck I didn't get that either. I got something that didn't fit and fell apart. I also went in to this hoping to relive my childhood. No all I got was hexagonal marks indented in my finger and thumb. I can honestly say I had a lot of maccano as a kid and could never remember it being this difficult. I don't know what has happened but it's a definite case of "it's not like it used to be". If I couldn't do it at 26 how on earth is a 6 year old going to do it.
