In the summer of 2009, James May—a co-presenter on BBC TV's Top Gear—embarked on a great adventure. Helped by children of all ages, he built a range of classic toys for his popular show. This high-spirited book captures those escapades, with explanations of how May constructed the projects as well as with diagrams, illustrations, and informal photographs taken during the filming. The fun creations included an Airfix, a model Spitfire constructed from the first 1:1 scale kit for that plane, and the world’s first full-size Lego house.
Plus, May gives step-by-step instructions for 12 simple items—like colorful Meccano Glasses—anyone can make at home.
