I'm not so sure that Axiom still retains a sample of every model ever produced.

Likewise, Ian is already on record saying that the changes are continual and gradual; the transition from ti to v2 to v3 may be far less distinct than you project.

Finally, what do you want Ian spending his time, talent and resources on? Developing new and improved products for us all to enjoy, or satisfying your curiosity about the past?

FYI... quoted from Ian himself; This is a great idea. We may be able to do it as a video since we keep "museum" pieces of all the models through the years. Thanks.

I have bought axiom products since th early 90's.. the AX line... you saying that Ian would stop developing new and improved products for us all to enjoy to satisfy my curiosity is very funny...

and on this day.. Canada day!! & As a comsumer of axiom products, a 100% canadian company, i'm proud to encourage them and am interested is seeing all the hard work these guys achieved over the years, but that is just me.. n'est pas?

Last year I provided some vintage Axiom Brochures from the early 1990's that can be seen here:

My pristine AX2s are now sadly 'sleeping' in my garage but can be seen here when they were up & running last year:

I'm proud to encourage them, too. I think I've proven that repeatedly.

I didn't say I thought Ian would "stop" doing anything. It's a question of prioritizing limited resources.

What was your goal in posting the poll given Ian's apparently gracious response?

Johnny, unless there is a "secret room" that Ian and team would not let us into, he has a certain amount of older models in the museum. That are was open for us to see upon our visit in 2010 for the anniversary.

Exlab, the second link is the brochure I also have. Ian laughed when I showed him that one at the anniversary event!
