Another "sorta-done" replica

So, my take on the paraset is almost done.
Quite pleased.
Although no screenprint yet, I do like the basement nickel plating I put on the front panel.
Knobs are resin cast, copied from an original knob, Henk provided coil forms etc.
Have had a few qsos so far.
Still need to paint the cash box and make a power supply.

Oh, by the way. The italiano FT-171-b's paraset warehouse sells easliy grinds up to the 80m band.
Finished one yesterday, pulled it from 3380 to 3532khz. Keys well.
