1965 RANGE

These were the first Plastic Meccano sets. The workbox was the C set in a wooden box designed for use in schools. The wooden box had holes drilled in it, to allow it to be used as a base for models.

BX Conversion Set - These are very rare. It is not known when these were introduced. However it is thought to be later rather than earlier. The only reference I have found to it so far is in an April 1970 Dealers Order List

Note * - Early bolts were hollow core type which are thought to have changed to solid core in around 1971.

Note ** - The sprockets, were initially coloured grey. It is not certain when they changed to yellow, although it is thought to be quite early.

Note ? - Cord changed from green to blue during the period 1965 to 1970.
