BAYKO Miscellaneous Literature

This section shows a variety of pieces of BAYKO literature from various points in the lifetime of the product.
This is definitely a pot pouri as the section doesn't lend itself to an obvious structure...
...so I hope you enjoy wandering through the section and that you find some items which interest you.
I am always interested in expanding the range of documents on the site, so if you have anything that you don't see here and are happy to sell or lend it to me then I'd love to hear from you...
 
1946 to 1948 Instruction Sheet
I wasn't sure how to classify this flier and have also included it in the manuals section...
This sheet was included in all sets during the early post-war years and was a basic instruction sheet which introduced the range of BAYKO parts, that was available at the time, and how to use them all.

Unusually, this flier was stapled along the top - except obviously for page 8!
Note that the parts list does not include ½-Brick Rods.
Page 5 is of particular interest as this is the first mention of the [then] new Flat Roof...
...these sheets were issued through to 1948, long after the Flat Roof had changed from the diamond patter shown here to the more familiar tiled pattern.
Also, to me at least, the 3-Brick Pillar [Page 5, top left] looks more like a red one than the white ones which were actually produced.
178 mm x 122 mm = 7.0 x 4.8 inches

A simple booklet, showing how to use BAYKO parts on pages 1 & 2...
...the range of parts available, including up to 6-Brick Rods on page 3...
...and Set Contents and Parts Prices on Page 4.
250 mm x 189 mm = 8.9 x 7.45 inches
 
1948 FLIER cum MANUAL
In all honesty I'm not quite sure how to categorise this document which is both price list and instruction manual...
...it was clearly intended to raise interest in the new parts [and the re-introduced Domes, Pinnacles and Turrets] and to enthuse children [and retailers?] with their model-making potential.

The structure of the document is exactly as you see it here...
...the three pages, printed on each side, on a single, folded sheet.
248 mm x 184 mm = 9.8 x 7.25 inches
 
Like all good companies, Plimpton worked at their customer relations, in the example I'm talking about now they wrote to a customer in Antwerp, Belgium and enclosed a copy of a [then] recently printed flier showing the parts requirements for two well known BAYKO models, the 'Country Club' and the 'Block of Flats'...
