Comments from Submitter:
I just acquired a set, which was incomplete but with the original box. Seeing the models there, it is simply impossible to build them with the current BrickLink's inventory. I reconstructed what should be the minimal set to build all the models in the box. This is also evident from the photos which are uploaded in BrickLink, but I can provide new photos with the alternate models in the box, if needed.

Completing the box with all the pieces that I think should be in the inventory and a catalog of that time, the weight is 204 g, please update that as well.

For these very old sets, they often came with stock pictures that were not intended
to serve as instructions for what could be built with the set. Before making
any changes, please check with the submitter of this inventory who is an authority
on such matters.

It is also possible that different contents came at different times and locations
for these old sets, which were little more than parts packs. Often the BL inventory
only serves as a suggestion as to what one might find.

I Agree. They were inspirational models that were not directly related to the
set contents.

I had several of these sets and many matched the bricks that were in each. Here
on Peeron.com it was inventoried by someone and I varied it from the sets I had
in my possession. At the same time, Lego often substituted elements when they
ran short and they did not change building instructions.

I think that the first instructions were added to some sets in 1964. Not all
the sets immediately included them. I think this set was made during the transition
period. I agree with Russell that caution is needed for sets from this time period,
and depending on box images to reconstruct the set contents could lead to errors.


PS. Note that you linked to a different set:
 
Set No: 005  Name: Discovery Set
* 
005-2 (Inv) Discovery Set
2 Sets, 1967
Sets: Samsonite: Basic Set
 
Set No: 005  Name: Basic Building Set in Cardboard
* 
005-1 (Inv) Basic Building Set in Cardboard
53 Parts, 1965
Sets: Classic: Basic Set
