Any of you guys purchase the 6u5 magic eye tubes from over seas like from the Ukraine ? If so how are they pretty good?

don't the soviet "6U/E5 tubes have an octal base rather than a fat pin base and are not direct drop-in replacements ?

Yes, they have an octal base. You need and adapter or socket replacement.

I've used the Russian 6E5C tubes to replace the (expensive) eye tube in German sets. I'm not sure if they will replace a 6U5 / 6G5
