1981 Flat Top Series Catalog Hi Res Images

Post by Sigmania » Tue Nov 23, 2021 11:29 am

I just got a copy of the 1981 Flat Top Series catalog.

It is actually a fold out poster with 16 pages essentially.

I scanned it because the versions on line are blurry.

My hope is to eventually get all of this text translated.

Here are the images.
