Sprio (Turm-Drehkran) Construction Sets
Sprio (Turm-Drehkran) was a simple construction system to make a model crane. It was manufactured in Leipsig by Sprio (VEB Sprio Werke Holzhausen). Dates currently unknown. Only the one set is currently known.
There appears to be two versions of this set. One (presumably older) in a gray crackle finish paint, pictures of which are shown below and the other with coloured painted parts which can be seen here.
The instruction sheet can be seen here.
