Chassis Notes(most schematics can be clicked to download a full size version)
Shallow / stretched chassis - not baking pan style. Uses 5" RCNZ EM speaker. Some have a magic eye - known in service info as a 24E, however the chassis code appears to just be '24' on all models regardless of eye.
General Construction Notes for Radio Corporation of New Zealand Ltd: The first digit of the serial number typically indicates the year of manufacture of RCNZ chassis' (although not the decade - that requires a little knowledge of the valves, construction, etc). Sets from around 1934 onwards were often (but not always) constructed in a distinctive pressed 'baking pan' style chassis, seemingly unique to RCNZ.
