Hi Drew pal :),the x2 sat on top of the T1154 are both "L" models,they have the wrinkle type paint job finish,the other x2 are a "A" model & a highly modified "N" model which somebody decided would look nice Gloss Black. {bnghd}

I must of had x20 R1155's over the years & they used different paint on different models,i have another R1155A here and the band selector badge is painted on rather than a brass plate as is the AVC-BALANCE-VISUAL ,i guess they were cutting back on materials for the war effort.

Forgot to mention the T1154 is the rarer "L" model,it is in good nick & all complete,could do with finding a 1200V HT PSU unit to try it,but i somehow think that would be a mission & a half finding one,i will probably sell it on TBH even though i have BNOS Jones plus etc for it still in their original wax paper packaging.

Yet another acquired for the collection today...a rare version of the AR88D the RAF designated R1556A hence the different coloured front panel.

Working well & in decent condition,it has been modernised & had all the bathtub capacitors replaced & it has the original AR88 Signal meter fitted.

This radio nearly ended up in a skip! the chap i bought it from said it had been his Uncles who past away 2 years ago,he saved it along with another radio i acquired today,the SK's family lobbed everything in the skip {bnghd} & his nephew rescued this as it was one of the last radios left in the house,obviously too heavy for them to lift into the skip so a blessing in disguise.

Not bad for £60 eh ;)
