What I like collecting.

I only have about 40 or so radios, but these are what I like to collect. It's just sad that parts are no longer available, and some radios have to be sacrificed to repair others.

Mine is generally messy, generally something is in pieces and not a lot to look at.. but I enjoy it.
Hmmm, has been so long since I have posted pics in a forum I have forgotten how the Image thing works..
