Phil, yes, you are correct – the coloured Model 5000’s used ivory knobs (unlike the photo of the carnation red one on the radiomuseum.org site.) I tried to match the original colour/knob combination, as seen in the photo at the beginning of this thread.
Good to know you’ve got more of the propeller dials – here’s a photo of one of my other Model 5000s with that dial. Luckily, it doesn’t have a hammertone finish! But learning to make a new dial cover was fun.
