5-valve radio, art deco cabinet, at least two different dial styles sighted - one of which looks very similar to the Columbus dial, the other a more common 'gold' embossed card dial typical to Courtenay sets of this era.

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.
