description

Painted metal 'bricks', which connect together by tabs and folds, as shown here:

Parts included plain bricks, internal and external corners (both right angled and 120 degrees, for building hexagonal towers), windows, opening doors, bases and foundation bricks. Roof slates connect to each other with a similar fold and tab system but are flat. Ridge tiles, gutter pieces and a four-part chimney finish off the roof. There are no gable bricks, instead the stepped wall is smoothed out by means of a cornice piece which slots over the bricks. The finished roof then rests on top.
