5-valve broadcast-band only - at least two different cabinet designs as seen below, one using an atypical (for RCNZ) woven metal grill. Note, the advert below refers to the Skipper as a dual-wave, however the dual wave version of the model 84 is the model 85, and has 4 knobs so this is a misprint.

Chassis Notes(most schematics can be clicked to download a full size version)
5-valve chassis, a similar (reasonably basic) design to the model 24. A magic eye is included in the schematic, however it is not always fitted
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.
