Several new parts were introduced. The 100 set was the same as the previous A set. The Accessory sets 200X & 300X converted the 200 and 300 sets to the 300 & 400 sets respectively. The workbox while substantially unchanged was also revised to include many of the new parts.
In 1974 the number of Nuts and Bolts in set 100 were increased by two. In the first (Meccano-Tri-ang) edition of the 300/400 manual it gives the quantity of part P60 for sets 300 & 400 as 8. This was obviously an error as it was changed to 9 for both sets in the next (Meccano(1971) Ltd) edition. The quantity in the 200X set was also increased from 2 to 3 to match.
The 100 set was also sold by Boots under their own label and packaging.
