A Meccano enthusiast has been showing off his model of a Teesside landmark - just before he dismantles it.
It took Joe Etheridge, who is president of the North East Meccano Society, almost a year to build this version of the Newport Bridge.
The model is four feet high, made up of thousands of parts and has five motors.
It was built in the study of Mr Etheridge's Peterlee home and has won him several construction prizes.
Its creator now needs the parts for his next project - an excavating machine.
