I finally finished the third of the wooden table-model radios I started restoring last year. An RCA Victor Model 122, an Addison Model 5, and now the Dominion Electrohome Viking (sold by Eaton’s) . Complete with the service tag from the shop in Vancouver from 1955!
The most interesting part of the restoration was learning how to reproduce the gold lettering with the black outline. Not too difficult in the end.
Gary: Very nice work. I like the refinish on the cabinet. I hope you have some photos of the process you used for the decals, as there might be others here who would want to know the way you did it.

Very nice job, Gary. I’d be very interested in how you produced the decals. I’ve been experimenting with decals but have not been satisfied with the results. They look good before I apply them but the colours seem to disappear when applied to the radio. I’ve been using clear decal sheets on my inkjet printer.
I agree – a lovely job Gary! Well done on the hatrick. What’s your next project?
Thanks, folks, Will start a new thread to describe how I made the gold decals.
As for the next project, am embarrassed to say I’m tarting up a little plastic kitchen radio with a blue metallic fleck paint, better audio, and Bluetooth for my wife to use as a decoration in her kitchen.
