Nice! Iíll try to find it.  I saw one of the trimline prototype (schmoo phones) on eBay a few years ago, got out of my price range in a hurry.

I would love to get my hands on a scan of that document!  (For the TCI Library.)

I made the same statement regarding the concept models (and field trial sets) about 20 years ago. After deciding I'd probably never own most of them, I stated collecting photos and info - a bit at a time.

The result is posted here:  http://www.paul-f.com/weproto.html

I have been lucky enough to acquire a few and luckier to have borrowed or visited others in person to be able to study them. On the site, you'll find info on Singing Wires articles that have more history and details on some of the sets.

You can see photos of many in the JKL Museum collection here: https://www.jklmuseum.com/misc/vex5/index.htmIf you visit the museum, you might even "get your hands" on a few.

I've found it a fascinating area to study -- watching the evolution of technology over the years.

Documents in pdf format scanned at 300dpi or higher are preferred, but we can work with other formats if needed. Having the pages flat is important, as we like to OCR as many documents as possible. If you'd like to discuss options, PM or email and we'll set something up. Thanks.
