BAYKO Set #3X Instruction Manual -
August, 1951 - 2nd Issue

This Instruction Manual was the second of six issues to be produced by Plimpton for their [then] new BAYKO set #3X.
This manual was intended for people who bought a set #3X to convert their set #3 to a set #4 - therefore the models in this manual can only be built with a set #4. These manuals were subsequently, until August, 1954, included, alongside a sets #0 to #3 manual, in set #4.
It is print coded August, 1951. The printers code also suggests that 5,000 copies were printed.
When launched, the set #3X didn't include the Dome or Pinnacle Roof and Platform. The parts list on the Inside Front Cover [below] reflects that, and, indeed, none of the plans for models utilise these parts. There are two changes to this page from its predecessor, with the manual's price and the clumsy phrase "Crazy Paving may be used very usefully..." both having been dropped.
This issue of the manual includes a correction slip stuck onto Page 16, amending the trivial typo where Side Bricks Red were wrongly listed as "Side Windows Red".
 
The manual was printed by J.H. Leeman Ltd., Leighton Printing Works, Neston, Wirral. For the first time, this manual is allocated administration code Ref 11. It has full colour front and rear covers, showing the famous models of the 'Block of Flats' and 'Country Club', respectively...
...the other 22 pages are printed in red, green and black on white gloss paper.
Size - 250mm x 185mm = 9.8 x 7.3 inches.
This is labelled as the 2nd issue.
5,000 copies were printed.
