Trix Construction Sets

Post by Mikeor » Mon Oct 24, 2011 9:04 am

In many ways better than Meccano, Trix was the thinking boy's construction set. Not only did the bare metal look better than the garish colours of Meccano, but the basic pieces, with their distinctive triple holes, we're much sturdier when assembled. And there were very few 'ready-made' components - e.g. The crane-hook could be used for making other bits.
From a lads point of view, the Supplementary Sets were the best way of building up a comprehensive outfit as they were all priced within the range of pocket-money. The Trix Electric Motor was a treasure. :)
