Constructor (5) Construction Sets

Constructor(5) was a Meccano-like Construction system. It was produced in the Ukraine from at least the 1990s to the mod to late 2010s. Probably still being made. Note the text on most of the newer sets 'Купуй українське' (Buy Ukrainian). This will refer to recent conflict and tension between the Ukraine and Russia
