MECCANO Era BAYKO Instruction Manual
Sets #11 to #14 - February, 1961

This Instruction Manual was the first version of the later style to be produced by MECCANO for their BAYKO sets #11 to #14. MECCANO printed 100,000 copies of this version - a pretty rapid follow up to the initial 250,000!
It is print coded February, 1961, and was probably linked to the launch of sets #13 and possibly #14.
There is a slightly different, earlier version which is best known for the differences in the children on the front cover...
There are no other manuals overlapping this one.
The 24 pages are printed in red, green, yellow and black on white gloss paper.
Size - 222mm x 190mm = 8.75 x 7.5 inches.
These images of the boy and girl on the front cover of this BAYKO manual [below] have been changed from the original 1960 MECCANO era version.
Page 16 [below] has also been slightly altered from the original version, by the reinstatement of the instruction to use a rubber band to support the 2-Brick Rod used between the two Large Windows above the open porch at the front of the model shown.
