Konstruktor(24) - (together with)
Konstruktor Malyutka / Konstruktor Shkol'nik / Konstruktor Universal'nyi

Konstruktor(24) together with Konstruktor Malyutka, Konstruktor Shkol'nik and Konstruktor Universal'nyi was a metric construction system made in Russia by the Leningrad Experimental Factory of Metal Haberdashery and Souvenirs (Ленинградского Опытного завода металлической галантереи и сувениров) from at least the mid 1970s to the early 1990s. To avoid confusion the four names given to this system should rationalised under Konstruktor(24) as it is all one constructional system but with different set ranges over the years.
