It looks like this one should be a fairly easy resto. on a hard to find early TV. These are really attractive little 7" electrostatic sets. I was fortunate enough to find a nice one and had a friend meticulously restore the chassis. Although not a particularly impressive performer, it's quite acceptable. This is the only one I've seen with just the "Raytheon" decal. Most are "Raytheon Belmont" even though Raytheon just absorbed Belmont by this time. I would say it definitely it's the kit version. Oddly, the pastics used for the knobs are a very unstable type that shrink and get that white powdery coating. The smaller one's can be quite a bear to remove.
