There are quite a lot of manuals available in either paper or scanned, and also quite a lot of flyers. These are the manuals I have...
http://www.paulswan.me/arcade/manualsUS.htm
...that's slightly out of date.

In your classification, the UR3 series were the MTC-900 ones and the UR2 series the KT-3's, I think. You'll probably want to call out the B&W vectors as a separate class of cabinet.
There two flavors of UR1 - the colour ones (Astro Wars/Galaxia) and the B&W ones (Dodgem, The Invaders). Further, there's The Invaders (dedicated) and then there are some one off B&W's (Circus, Off Limits) before that, even.
Best bet is to put what you have on a web page and we'll all chime on what should be where Smiley

Great effort!
Paul.

@Etienne
I've to ask you a big favor...
could you scan again the manual or at least that page modifying the color regulation?
probably you can improve the image quality. here an example.
than you !!!  oppps  oppps  oppps

DOCUMENTS
wow you have a very huge amount of interesting manuals!!

I write here what I miss. If you haven't time to scan them you can send me the paper and I can do it for you, at my expense of course...

Crazy Kong Technical Manual (Zaccaria) - COULD BE IN BETTER CONDITION THAN ETIENNE's
Quasar Technical Manual (Zaccaria) ONLY IF IT IS IN ENGLISH, I'M SCANNING A VERY COMPLETE ITALIAN VERSION
Jackrabbit Modification Kit for Money Money (Zaccaria)
The Invaders Instruction Manual (Model Racing/Zaccaria)
Technical Manual for Galaxia (Zaccaria)
Scramble Technical Manual (Zaccaria)
Instruction Manual for Astro Wars (Zaccaria) IS THIS INSTRUCTION MANUAL DIFFERENT FROM THE TECHNICAL MANUAL WE HAVE?
Super Cobra Technical Manual (Zaccaria)
Frogger Technical Manual (Zaccaria)
Technical Manual for Laser Battle (Zaccaria)

CLASSIFICATION
in this first classification I'm trying to identify the external "shapes" only; that's the reason I'm looking for the original cabinets b/w draws (I think it's nice to use original document parts). Once we can assign a cab classification to each product, next step is on the control panel formats (Etienne already made a great job on that). After that: side arts and graphic sets and then we can "open" the cabinets.

WEB
yes it's a good idea to put everything on the web. Once I have enough stuff I'll open a dedicated page where you can add comments and open discussions...

thank you

actually we are not so friend, I met them only during some meetings and exhibitions. usually Natale is quite happy to talk about their history but often he says :"yes one day, now I'm very busy..."
I'll try the best...

I dont have the Original, i just downloaded this PDF after Laschek pointed me to it.

If i had the Original, and scanned it myself, it would have been alot higher quality as i do have some practice with that on sidearts and stuff  Wink

However, i can try to manual trace it in illustrator and "restore" that document..

time time time is what i need  Grin

I am in the search for a part of the serial code for a alusticker that i am making for some guy,

I have looked back in my previous runs and came up with this data:

116.xxx  Phoenix (flying soucer artwork cabinet)
125.xxx  Phoenix (Spacestation artwork cabinet)
127.xxx  Vanguard
142.xxx  Starsplash cabinet
133.xxx  Comidar
132.xxx  Crazy Kong

Now, i dont know if the first 3 digits are the gamecode, but i think it is.
Does anybody have more numbers ? (especially a scramble)

Thanks !
