The 20 Baron started off as a basic machine with fixed pitch head for the '20-25' size engines.

KALT 20 Baron CP (1981)

Dec 1981 and a quick look from a UK Magazine

Introduced in 1981 for the engine range '25-28' and now including collective pitch with its own dedicated rotor head.  Also known as the 'Baronette' due to it being the smaller 'sibling' of the original Baron range.
