Construction - Construction Sets

This range of metal construction sets were made, prior to the unification of Germany by the former East German company now known as Eitech. It is a metric system with 10mm hole spacings and 4mm thread. Set boxes - but not the manuals - were frequently marketed under the name 'Constructo'. For post Germany unification set manuals see 'Construction-Eitech'.
