Notes

Riders shows the models 516, 5516 and 6516 for the same schematic. The sticker for the tube layout in the sets show "Fiver" ... 516-BF, Model 529 = 5516-AH, Model 537 Console = 5516-MG and Model 525 = 6516-BB. On the 516-BF you find the plate with only "516" but also a stamp on the back of the cabinet: "6BF".

There are at least two different forms of the grille of the cabinet. Since we don't know a difference for the model name we have created two variants. Please be careful where you place your pictures.

The mentioned price was valid for season 36/37.
