Long before Lego there was Bayko construction kits. Anyone remember them? I’ve still got one, could easily replicate this building.

I had a BAYKO construction Kit. Played with it for years and whenever I got any money i.e. Birthdays Christmas, I would buy extra pieces. from a shop at the top of Wallgate? The only problem was with the thin metal rods If they got bent they were useless Hence I was always buying new ones.<g>. I think it was a No2 set? It was in a blue box.
Thinking about it now,It only seems like a few weeks ago when I was building houses etc. with it.

Ron….I wonder if wire coat hangers would do. Maybe the gauge a little too much. Just a thought.

If you want to relive your childhood, Ron - I've got a No 2 Bayko set. I don't know how complete it is - but there's loads of rods with it.

David put my name on it.. Much better building Bayko buildings than watching the garbage on TV..
