Does anyone have a picture of a Bendix model 526 E back? I need to make one for one I'm restoring. Thanks

Hello Tom.

Three recent completed listings, ebay.

I use oil-tempered Masonite (shiny and smooth on both sides) if you can find it.

:) Greg.
oh... save the images to your computer, they won't be there forever.

That picture shows a wooden case, mine is brown plastic. Did they make the 526 C in anything other than green catalin?

There's a similar non-Catalin plastic version with an ivory and maroon case.

So the brown swirl is definitely not catalin?

Oxidised green catalin = brown?

There is only one Bendix radio in Catalin plastic. All the others use different plastics.
