I am a newbie to the Vintage Radio / Gramophone collection.

I purchased not so long back a 1925 DECCA Gramophone. I fell in love with the sound from the old 78"s played. It needs some work done to bring it up to forma glory but that will be a project for later on.

The one I wish to start now is a beautiful Philips Glidomatic RF 8 I was given by a family member.

I already have the schematics for this so the electronics should not be an issue (family member has been in radio and electronics for 40+ years and used to working with these older radio's)..lucky for me..

However what I am trying to track down if someone may own one of the above. I need a good quality picture of the right hand dial plate with all it's writing / logo's on it. (the plate has the words Glidomatic / Music Studio / and the Philips Logo) I need to get a new screen print made and require a quality picture so I can get it reproduced. My partner does graphic design so my hope is we can reproduce it in Adobe CS6. (The model I have the background is black, and all the writing logo's are in white)

Can anyone also please advise if there are antique radio clubs in the Brisbane area. I would like to join up, as my farther has a few old radios as well to be brought back to life.

Any help would be appreciated.
