There was also the Metropolis, which I believe was made for them, like the Solo models, by Pilot (not to be confused with the Pilot Metropolitan...).

 

Their original stylographs from the late 19th century, the Art Deco fountain pen they briefly made in the 1930's, and the 150th Anniversary LE, based on the 1930's pen, that came out in 1996...

Year of the Monkey is a Sauvage body, like most of the Year pens (up until Rooster).

 

I have a partly-completed manuscript for a Collector's Guide to the Cross Townsend that includes brief info on the other Cross FPs I've been able to find. I'd be glad to send you a PDF if it would help; just PM me with your e-mail. I've wanted to finish the book and start a corresponding website for it, but just haven't had the time and energy this year.

 

Cross models I have that I don't see in your list:

 

Coventry

Dalton

Dubai

Forever Pearl

Helios

Metropolis

Sentiment

Signature

Spire

Stratford

Torero

As a fan of Cross fountain pens I think the reference list is a wonderful idea. I am happy to supply photos if you need. I have 2 Signatures, a Townsend, a Century Classic and Century II.

I only have a couple of Cross pens, both of which are c/c pens.  One is a red Solo with black trim, purchased from the estate of a friend who died suddenly.  It' a nice way to remember her by -- she and I had several conversations about pens, and a few years ago we commissioned some handmade books from her because I knew I could say "Helen, can you have the paper be fountain pen friendly?"

The other is a Cross Verve I picked up for a buck (!) at a thrift store specializing in donated arts and crafts supplies.  I haven't used it much -- just long enough to realize why the model was only on the market for a few years....  :(
