310 limousine (1-engine biplane)
370T (biplane 1928), 371T (biplane)
401T (3-engine? biplane 1930)
710 (flying boat, profile only, 1935)
unbuilt variant of 730 (4-engine flying boat, 1935)
731 single-fin and twin-fin variants (4-engine flying boats 1937), 732 (4-engine flying boat 1940)

Thanks a lot, Terry! I've updated the list with your additions. I'm aware this list is still incomplete but I'm still working on it, especially as far as the early types are concerned.
