The Cadet was produced in two forms: a folding bed type or a strut model. The colour was described in advertisements as rosewood. Early woodcuts do not show the rotating stops on the Doublet model.

The folding bed model was at first sold with a meniscus lens, at 25/-, by 1933 a model with a doublet lens was sold, at 30/-. A model for '16-on' having two red windows was introduced in 1933 called the Tuon.
