Sorry Paul do you only want survivor?

Yeah, sorry mate. It looks awesome though. Dan seems to have nailed that colour  :shocked: 8)
The idea was for this to help weed out any uncertainty with converted Hot Hearts.

Would this thread be better as a stickie? It is an on-going project that invites input and provides a useful primary source.

Looking at the data collected so far (subject to change):

Kuwahara ET

Production dates found - May - Dec 1982
Production numbers from - 0081 - 5838

If production numbers ran each month from 0001 to at least 5838, from May - Dec an estimated total of 46,704 frames would have been made.

No survivor T3 stamped frames have been found.

Hot Heart

All T2 stamped frames with no TANGE JAPAN stamp have only been found in chrome. The earliest of these T2 frames date from May 1982.
