Thank you Lord for prayers answered...!
I'm glad it came to someone with the skill and desire to recreate the original innards.. I was having nightmares about that cabinet ending up as a wine cabinet or a "retro" (you know, the more I hear that word, the more I hate it) housing for some hideous LCD TV, or worse still, some nasty amplifier with an MP3 player stuck on the end of it
Somewhere, I have a GEC table top radio, and a GEC radiogram, of approximately WW2 period, but I haven't seen either in years, and I doubt if they'd be what you're looking for.. It's a pity you don't have any pictures or sketches of the radio chassis.
