Hi Sigmania,
*All kidding aside*, you've done a fantastic job of organizing all these scans ! Thank you so much, for this and all you do. This *Table Of Contents* has been extremely useful to me recently.
And, *just as you predicted*, I've done some "digging about", and there is something, at this very moment, on an EMS flight headed my way.

I have made a list of all the catalogs I have found. I owns mostly on the list but a few.
You will notice #26 does dot exist according to a japanese forum member I trust. I am thinking about #18 being the same?

Please feel free to add or correct if any mistake on the list!
