Hi there, larry was asking on behalf of me, I only discrovered this site the other day, I hae pics which I will upload soon.

I have not pulled the chassis out to take pics yet but I will do in the future.

Anyhow, details on the valves:

two with the top cap attached to the tuning cap.

- mullard ic7 g, uncaged
- Radiotron, ??? cannot be read, caged 7 pins

Immediately behind speaker:

1K7 G radiotron, caged

Beside speaker (left side if looking from the back):
miniwatt ID5 GP, caged in a shield that is the same shape as the valve.

Beside the power in: radiotron ??? cannot be read, 7 pins, uncaged

Pics will follow in a minute.

some pics here, not sure if I have linked them correctly.

thanks for your help, this s a long term project waiting for me to be off my L plates on fixing older radios, I have done a few old tv's in the past, but only recently taken a serious interest in radio.

I will make a thread sometime soon with my other radios in my collection.

Here are the 5 valve options from Radiomuseum:

Model 3250 (1943) 1D5GP, 1C6 or 1C7G, 1D5GP, 1K7G, KL4G, broadcast and shortwave, table set.

Model 3050A (1945), 2 x 1D5GP, 1C7G, 1D5GP, 1K7G, 1L5G, broadcast and shortwave, table set.

These are sets powered by dry batteries or a 6 volt synchronous vibrator unit.

How is yours powered?
