Plastic frames which connect together at the edges with grooves and studs into which fit a variety of wall panels. Frames can be connected together at right angles by grooved and flanged columns. Frames are primarily square with some rectangles (half squares) and triangles (diagonally halved rectangles). The inserts are mostly wall finishes in either thin textured and coloured opaque plastic or windows in coloured (and sometimes textured) transparent plastic. There are a few card inserts, generally with printed signs. In addition there are a variety of special inserts and frames, including shop windows, bow window, house door with pillars, clock, flag pole, garage door, revolving door etc. There are also balconies and canopies. Other cardboard parts include helicopter pads and 'building extenders'. Roofs are generally intended to be flat (some of the plastic inserts are domed or pyramidal roof lights and panels) but card roofs are supplied for more domestic buildings.
