Can anyone send me pictures of the battery cover of this Philips L3X14T transistor radio. 1961 vintage.
So I can fabricate one to suit my radio.
Particularly interested to see the catches or whatever which holds it in.
TIA, JJ

Link won’t open.
L3X14T/00 radiomuseum shows the exact model.

Link opens fine for me.

I know it's on RM, but you asked for a photo of the battery cover, which is the image I linked to.

Sorry GTC but link does not work for me for some reason.
Could you email the link or photo to me, so I can try a PC rather than my iPad.

Thanks, got that.
Cover obviously slots downwards.
A picture of the inside of the cover would be handy.
Will probably make one using either eight inch balsa or MDF, sand to suit and seal.
Then paint match to plastic back.
Still can’t see how it latches though.
Thanks again GTC.
