In reply to Alan Brilliant.
I would suggest you build the differential analyser. A very interesting models. there are two meccano plans, one from the sixties for the large analyser, there is also a much smaller model I have built. I got the plan from ebay and there WAS a video on youtube...which I cant find :-(
hope this gives you an interesting model

Hugh, The SML 6a never actually existed as a leaflet, but Bert Love released a copy of it in the Meccano Magazine for October 1973 Pages 68-71. The first of the pages can be found here
There is also an interesting article written by Ralph Laughton on SML 6a, which can be found here

Does anyone else do models with TRIX?

My solution was to replace the ordinary 2" Strip with a slotted one with a Fishplate fixed to the big end to provide a round hole for the crankpin slightly nearer the small end.

I found some Universal Couplings in a large lot of Meccano which I purchased a long time ago. Two were particularly nice ones. The shouldered bolts had coned ends which met in the middle of the spider. The lot included parts from the period when the Supermodel Leaf;ets were first published. Unfortunately, I put them in a safe place and forgotten where.
I made the model some time after getting these parts and found it very satisfactory. I had problems fitting in an E20R and with the length of the sleeve pieces (which changed soon after the publication of the leaflet). I did, of course, have a supply of the dome headed bolts needed to lock the gear change but you could probably use modern Allen ones.
