I like this subject, so many things you can do with it.

I used the full 60 minutes, wish I had longer to put some valves and stuff inside.

The little string that moves the needle is broken, so he is stuck on a station he doesn't like. :D

Using the new (alpha version) SDS 2 it was a rather fast challenge, 22 minutes and a few seconds.

I think we all agree to let you finish the buttons,it takes like,ahem,3 seconds to pull them out and other 3 to paint them.
That radio is too nice to let the mice eat ur buttons. :lol:

Solo, that is fantistic! :o

I figured I'd try this. It's my first speed modelling competition and I just entered to get a little bit of practice. My model is super messy and horribly made. Even as simple as the model is, It took me the full hour. :roll: I couldn't even get the round corner plugin to work, Sketchup kept crashing. :roll: Anyways, here it is so get ready for a laugh. :lol:

Edit: Forgot shadows. Ah well. :lol:

My first ! :D
I want to say that I had no idea that ely862me had made something similar. But It's normal... as those were the radios that were in every house, in Romania 40 years ago :D and almost every one of us had one in the basement or attic.

Right. I went way overtime on this one... I'm bad at prioritizing...
So you're gonna not be able to vote for this one.

Wanted to show it anyway.

It's my grandmother's old radio... but still in action :D
It has more chrome than the average car of the same age...

Oh, and just for fun, since this is not an official entry, a picture of the same:

Well, Martha, you (as well as your grandma) must be too young. This is not an old radio but something similar to what I still use as "new"! :)

Nice model anyway (even if you went overtime). :thumb:

hehe yes I guess I'm still quite young... my grandma is 86 though... not so young anymore. And the radio is certainly not antique, but it's old all the same. Hm. That is. She's always had it, as long as I can remember. That probably doesn't say that much :lol:

This one is probably as "retro" as it gets... :lol:

Also makes sense that this is my first challenge entry...

Can be described as a predecessor to a walkie-talkie.. which is a "radio" in the language of childhood street slang.
Had to put it up there, but I'll have something more serious next time. :)
