NOTES A lovely large black bakelite set with a clean uncluttered look, though it is nigh on impossible to photograph and do it justice. I was re-decorating my front room in a black and white scheme when this turned up and I thought the radio would look nice sat in the room.

The dial pointer cord seems overly complicated, with two pulleys on the tuning capacitor.
SERVICE DATA A circuit diagram was on CD#1.
CURRENT STATE Good clean condition. However the fitted valves are a mixture of the two line-ups, though Ferranti thoughtfully attatched labels on the chassis next to each valve identifying the correct valve (this particular set is for the Mullard 'E' series valves). The two valve line-ups are not interchangable as there are various component differences.
WHERE FOUND One of the NVCF events for 40.
