    I thought it would be nice to share some of my series (same model but different colour).

    The AIWA HS-P08 & G08 in Red. This player was the most advanced walkman player back in 1895, with a big pack of features. The G08 is one of my favorites:

    And here the silver brothers:

    AIWA Walkman HS-G08 & P08 Silver.jpg

    The AIWA P02, if I'm not wrong, it's the first autoreverse from AIWA. Interesting that it has a noise reduction filter but not Dolby, something pretty rare (I bet it's the HighCom).

    The AIWA J700. This walkman has a hybrid transport, with the play mechanical, but the reverse and FF/REW, logical. It's very curious. The white one is really beautiful and extremely rare:

    The AIWA P08 Series. Pretty difficult to complete this series. Now I also have the pink and black ones, but still didn't update the photo:

    AIWA Walkman HS-P8 Series 03.jpg

    Four different SONY WM-10:

    The world's two first walkmans with bass amplification: (more info in my article about the Boodo Khan here)

    Panasonic Walkman RX-SA80 07.jpg

    My three favorite DD by design: (left to right) the WM-DC2, DD100 (aka Boodo Khan) and DD33. All three shares the same base design:

    SONY Walkman Boodo Khan & DC2 02.jpg

    Three top recorders from different years: the SONY D5 ProII, WM-D6C (sucessor), and the WM-R202, the smallest walkman recorder in 1986:

    SONY Walkman Recorder Series 05.jpg

    The WM-7, first walkman with autoreverse, logic control and remote:

    SONY Walkman WM-7 Series 01.jpg

    The TCM-600 (pre-TPS-L2), the original, very first generation TPS-L2 and the common, latest one:

    SONY Walkman TPS-L2 TCM-600 Series 01.jpg

    The 'curious' WM-503 in dark grey (rugous finish) and WM-504 with transparent door (pretty cool with a beautiful tape).

    SONY Walkman WM-504 Series 01-1.jpg

    The WM-600, a very beautiful design:

    SONY Walkman WM-600 Series 01.jpg

    The famous WM-701C, a walkman that marked a beginning of a new era (please check my extense article about this model in my website):

    SONY Walkman WM-701C Series 01.jpg

    My loved WM-B39, a walkman from my teenage. Not a top-class model (one of the best mid-class in those years) but well featured yet:

    SONY Walkman WM-B39 Series 04.jpg

    My two first WM-DD, silver and red:

    SONY Walkman WM-DD Series 01.jpg

    The WM-555, also one that I've had when I was teen (I bought one silver second hand back in 1996):

    SONY Walkman WM-EX55 Series 01.jpg

    The famous WM-2, DD predecessor. Almost the same external design, but yet belt driven:

    SONY Walkman WM-II Series 01.jpg

    And the two real golden most advanced walkmans from different brands, Panasonic and AIWA:

    Walkmans Gold Series 01.jpg

    Look forward to see your series!

    pic not as proffessional as yours, but here my favourites:

    WM-5 in black and silver (...they share the pre-DD-mechanics with the WM-2's)

    I love the volume-level behind a little window - and b.t.w. the silver one I got ages ago from JohnEdwards :thumbsup:

    Well, not. It's the only colour I don't have from the series. And the rarest.

    I remember John's post sharing their WM-5 yet. I miss him.

    My rainbow of WM30's. I still wonder why Sony decided to paint some and have others anodized.

    Indeed very rare units, Boodo. thanks for adding them. I only miss that U07 in red. The TV sharp I guess they are the most rare together with the W800 (japanese, right?)

    the gray WM-W800 in the picture is the Japanese version.
    I bought that red Aiwa U07 is from "SKIPPY" who was a member of old forum and sadly hasn't registered to new forum yet.
