BAYKO Sets #1 to #6 Instruction Manual
'New Series' - 1940? to 1941?
Second Version

This style of Instruction Manual was produced by Plimpton for their 'New Series' BAYKO sets in 1939 and lasted for around 2 years.
There is no printers code to confirm the date for this second version, though it was probably printed in 1940, after set prices were increased...
...the final version is clearly later than this date, but the date of 1941 is only a guess.
There were also two versions of the 'New Series' manuals which were produced post-war : -
 
The version shown here is courtesy of Bob Burgess.

I also own another copy of this manual, presumably dated 1940-ish, which has the BAYKO set price list shown in this version, but as an oversticker, glued over the original, at the top of page 2 - right.
This would have been version 1A in the sequence.

The manual was printed by Robert Johnson & Co. Ltd. of Southport, Lancashire. It comprises 34 black and white pages, including photos of models, on glossy white paper and the insides of the cover, with a two colour cover, printed in red and green on thicker white paper / card.
Size - 220mm x 141mm = 8.7 x 5.6 inches.
 
In addition to this manual, larger sets also included a number of Model Cards which provided detailed diagrams of models which were not printed on the manual pages...
 
 
The only difference between this manual and the earlier version is in the set and parts price list on page 2. Given the impact of wartime austerity, it's not difficult to work out in which direction the prices changed!
An important detail, on the set contents list on page 2, is that the Screws for Base Links are specified as 5BA, though this is not referenced in the Spare Parts Price List on page 4!
There's a type-setting error on page 18 below ["Green Wnidows"] which was corrected in the final version...
