A large boxed Tri-ang architectural Arkitex Scale Model Construction Kit, Set No.3 (1/42 scale), from the early 1960s.

This set was scaled to work with Triang Spot-On model cars and accessories, and with gauge 0 model railways.

Box details

The box lid shows a "ground view" scene of a modern building under construction, with a crane, the Tri-iang logo against a red rectangular background, and the product name against a light blue strip on the right, which reaches the edge of he box. The box edges are also light blue, and since these blue details are red on the smaller 00/H0-compatible sets on display, this looks as if Tri-ang colour-coded the boxes, with light blue signifying 1:42 and red representing 00/H0.
