Hello All.

I wonder if anyone can identify this TV for me. It appears to be a model 205C but has shorter legs than the ones I've seen pictured. See:
http://www.radiomuseum.org/r/amalgamate_awa_205c.html There is one on Youtube also, that uses longer legs, model number 205CW.
It does appear to use the same chassis as the 205C. Were there variations in this model, with different suffixes? The TV in question has a space on the back panel where the model number should be, but it is blank.

Regards, Stuart

AWA 205C Television

Those legs are not original so it will be a 205C.

Thanks for that Ian. I'll be restoring this for the owner over the next few months.

Cheers, Stuart
