Max Crago passed away on 29th August 2021. This page is in memory of him.
To all Members
It is with great regret that I have to inform you that Max Crago passed away last Sunday.
Max Crago, as can be seen in the Manly Daily article below, conceived the Meccano Modellers Association Sydney and unlike many who promise and don’t deliver, Max delivered!
If it wasn’t for Covid lockdown, we would celebrating our 40th year as a Meccano fraternity and association.
The many friendships, models and public exhibitions all came from Max’s dream, which he turned into a reality, which we and many others enjoy to this day.
Our condolences to the Crago family, of which there are many.
Max is and will be remembered with fond affection and a multitude of happy memories by all who have known him.
A eulogy will be prepared for the next Newsletter. Please send contributions to the Editor.

While downsizing his home, Max auctioned several of his models which were enthusiatically collected by others club members.
