Although there is no manufacturers indication at the model name Type 1000 there are variants in the tube lineup.
That was clearly factory made, since different socket combinations were used.
Up to now I found the following variations:
#1) Octal bases: 12SK7, 12SA7, 12SK7, 12SQ7, 35L6GT, 35Z5GT; backplate in accordance. This could be the initial version.
#2) Miniature bases: 12BA6, 12BE6, 12BA6, 12AT6, 35L6, 35W4; printed on backplate. not in accordance with the real assembly (see #3).
#3) Mixed bases: 12BA6, 12BE6, 12SK7(GT), 12AT6, 35L5, 35W4; not printed anywhere. The IF tube in of an Octal type rather than a Miniature base (as printed on the backplate), which is in contradiction to the backplate (see #2).
#4) there is an almost similar chassis in the Model 700 with probably exactly the same mechanical layout (dial and knobs apparently located as on the 1000): 12BA6, 12BE6, 12BA6, 12AT6, 35B5, 35W4; but the Power tube has completely different base connections (is not easily replaced by a 35L5). I think this chassis would match the Bullet case.
The problem is that there is not the least hint from the front and side view which variant might hide behind the Catalin body.
Riders Perpetual as well as Beitman both show only #1 above.
All owners of a Bullet 1000 are kindly asked to check the tube lineup and the backplate caption (this for the tubes and the Model name as well) and report either here or by eMail. Also if there is a SW band, and if so, is it marked on the dial?
Strange enough: It is my impression that Catalin collectors are generally not interested in the interna of their valuable sets. All the Catalin radio literature I have seen is ignorant in this respect...funny!
You may find everything about colors, dials, knobs, but nothing about Tubes, principle, wave bands, supply, speaker...!
I really hope with YOUR help to bring some light into that matter.Any information is appreciated

My Fada 1000 has also 6 tubes, but they are: 12BE6;12BA6(2);12AT6;35L6GT and 35W4. Socket adaptors were used by manufactory.
Note from EE:
When writing in English - what is very welcome - please select English as the writing language, what I have done now. Otherwise this will not be seen by users which have selected English for their language. As a member you will soon be enabled to create a version or even to enter a new model. I think it is necessary that we get a page for each variation - except for color only changes.

Material: Catalin; Maße: 265 / 170 / 150 ; Superhet m.Hf-Vorstufe; 6Röhren: 12SK7 / 12SA7 / 12SK7 / 12SQ7 / 35L6 / 35Z5 ;
Eine genauere Überprüfung meiner Geräte zeigte, daß dies für das (erbsen)grüne gilt,während das rotbraun/bernsteinfarbene die modernere Bestückung aufweist (keine Oktalröhren mehr), wie auch obenstehend beschrieben.
