A cheap eBay find I bought just to see what a Japanese machine of the era was like to use. The bodywork with the cool gullwing spool covers was made of surprisingly solid (and heavy!) metal. Unfortunately, the keys and touch really let it down. The baby blue colour is fun; pity the paintwork is scratched and beaten up. I did test polish a spot, though, and results were promising!
