    I got this one from Kijiji about two weeks ago.
    The fellow who I got it from was someone I knew about 15 years ago and i had lost contact with him until I answered his ad for a the radio.
    The chassis was fairly easy to restore although it needed a new 6E5 eye tube.
    I just got the cabinet done and I am always surprised at how they use to cover up a lot of the very nice wood grain on a lot of these radios
    with a coat of dark lacquer.
    I guess it was the style to have very dark furniture.
    Here is the radio completed.

    Hey there Dan

    I have been absent on the site for many weeks now but am back home from journey down east.
    That is another great job by you. You seem to have an assembly line process in turning out those many radios. I picked up what seem to be a rare Marconi Radio Phono set from the forties. Not certain of the Model yet, but will post a few before photos of this unit soon. Anyway, as I said, another great job by the Rado Master.

    Regards

    Ralph

    Thanks for the nice comments Ralph. I think this is the last one for this year,as it starts to get a little colder.
    Here is a link to Marconi radios. You might find your model there. Just click on a model number and a photo of that model will be shown.
    Sometimes you might have to scroll down and see more photos of the same model.
