I will check when I get home, but I think the answer is yes, I've got two
8512s. One of them is actually from VCF's collection which I have to
return anyway - if Evan is ok with you borrowing it first.
The other is mine that I'd be happy to loan.
The VCF collection has a number of Model Ms as well; I have one of those
checked out with an unusual Mexico/Latin america layout which I'll bring
back. I can bring another one as well to loan.

I didn't have much luck finding these for my OS/2 demo last year, but if I
dig up a spare I'll bring it. I fear that I trashed them back in the day
because, face it, they're awful to actually use. ;)
FWIW, I'm doing an IBM RS/6000 + AIX for teh UNIX team exhibit, and I have
piles of various IBM parts to go with that.
Also if you ever find that your exhibit setup is going /too/ easily and
you're not sufficiently /challenged/ yet, I recommend* installing OS/2
from floppy, or if that's not doing it for you, AIX For PS/2**. ;)
*this is not actually recommended for anyone. Ever.
** I have sick thoughts of restoring my P70 luggable just for this, but
only once the RS6k is solidly together.
