Chassis Notes(most schematics can be clicked to download a full size version)

At least 2 chassis variants - one of which has Philips(?) style IF cans, a miniature valve in the lineup, a different tuning cap (and reversed dial) and other differences like the orientation of the tone switch - probably one set built for HMV by Philips NZ while the other (main version) is Collier & Beale. Both sighted models have 'Manufactured by H.M.V. (NZ) Ltd'.
