Notes: "Flying Fish was the brand name given to slide rules manufactured by The China National Light Industrial Products Import and Export Corporation, Shanghai Stationary and Educational Supplies Branch. The slide rules were made in Shanghai and distributed mostly in Asian countries, but the existence of dual Chinese-English instruction books indicates that they had designs on English-speaking countries as well. The Model 1001 is a general purpose engineering log-log slide rule, and the inclusion of a P scale may indicate it was aimed at the European market. "
