I donĀ“t understand how a person could live with such a lousy result.
Specially if you have to look to your own work every day!

I can understand if that was painted by an 8 year old but anybody older and I'd start to be concerned.

The drips down the top side give it that home made look... :roll:

It was probably in someone's basement, garage or shop. An old worn radio with no value when it was painted. shrug.

I can see why he wants to sell it.

Lots of great pictures, thanks for posting!
And they are not all Philips, a few German brands and someone brought a Sony. 8)

Looks like an excellent antique radio swap meet, probably in Holland. Looks similar to to one I went to in Riquewihr, France years ago.

Hallo Jard,

Thanks for the link to the DrieBergen swap meet pictures (click to the left or right for more pics). I wish I had been there in NL for the day. I picked up an Erres at an NVHR swap in DrieBergen some years ago.

By coincidence, started work on a Hallicrafters SX-71 where someone had painted white over the metal-color lid. That paint probably kept the rust away. Easy to fix that mistake.

There was a car painter in Miami who always had drips and runs in his finished work. He said, "People don't mind a few runs because they know I'm not scrimping on paint!"
