Quebec Meccano Club

Pour les gens francais.

B.C. Meccano Modellers

The BCMM is a small group of hobbyists located in the Vancouver B.C. area. Our club is operated by members who formed the group in 2014 because we all have the common interest and are currently active in building models with Meccano. We are basically modellers who get together to share our interests and experiences. We share our interest through this web-site and display our efforts at local shows and events.
