The 1937 Haynes RSR Clipper

This was restored by my friend John Kelly, N3GVF (SK).

John completely stripped the chassis and cabinet. He repainted it
in it's original black wrinkle finish, and then reassembled it using
mostly vintage parts where practical. When I purchased it
after his death, it looked like brand new.

He also hand drafted the dials, paper labels and lettering. The
detail on the main dial is extensive. In all, it must have taken him
a hundred hours to complete.
