The Legend of Hornby
A boxed Meccano Aero Clockwork Motor No.2. These are quite small, elegant motors, and due to their "niche" market, can be quite difficult to find (as opposed to the "normal" Meccano motors, which can be picked up quite easily and cheaply).
No.2 vs No.1
The No.2 Aero motor was able to drive the plane's landing wheels as well as its propellor, and was supplied with a third tailwheel to allow the plane to stand nicely on the ground while its front two wheels were driven.
