Meta Build Construction Sets
and
Metamech Construction sets

Meta Build was a Meccano-like construction. It was made in India from (probably) 1989 to the mid 1990s.

Metamech was very similar with many parts appearing to be the same, although the colours may be different. It is suspected that it followed on from Meta Build as Metamech dates from around 1995.
