Hello MMD, Thanks to the MMD Archive I found an old article which
looked as if it might be helpful to me identifying the production year
for Steck SN Mod. V 38812. In MMD 2000.12.20 Patrick Boeckstijns wrote:

The link is no longer valid after nearly 15 years. Can anybody point
me to an updated link? Maybe Patrick Boeckstijns knows more?
On the other hand the sofnet user "kway" might be MMDer Kevin Way.
In any case, please, respond to this message, Kevin!
Best regards from Germany, where winter has lost its way to Europe.
