Betta Bilda from Airfix was essentially another Lego clone, but like Meccano's "Cliki", it included a few technical innovations of its own. Betta Bilda is chiefly remembered for its solution to the problem of how to build slanted roofs using a block-based model - Betta Bilda's approach was to use plastic roof tiles that slotted together using a peg-and-hole arrangement that was not too dissimilar to real tile fixings. The other distinctive aspect of the Betta Bilda roof tiles was that they were green.
Other than the green roof tiles, the sets tended to stay with the same basic colour scheme used by Lego - white for the more generic blocks commonly used for walls, and red for window and door components.
