New Reproduction Parts Finishes
The coloured reproduction parts are generally powder coated, this gives a more durable finish than the original Meccano painted finish. The Yellow and Green finishes are a good match for the 1970s UK Yellow and 1950s Mid Green. The Red finish is the same as the 1950s Mid Red. The Blue finish shade is between the early 1970s Blue and later 1970s Dark Blue shades.
Zinc parts are plated in the same way as the original parts.
Note all reproduction parts have the suffix '-N' at the end of the part number.
Pre-Owned Original Meccano Parts Finishes
These are supplied in the original paint finishes, so there is some natual variation due to the Meccano paint colours, plus some fading of the colours over time. These parts will vary in finish condition as they are second hand, but I try to only ship those parts in at least good condition.
Note all original parts have the suffix '-O' at the end of the part number.
