In this issue:
This is a beautifully designed 6 transistor Japanese shirt
pocket radio that would make a welcome addition to any collection. The
example shown above has a red plastic case which has an almost translucent
quality. The metal front of the radio wraps around all four sides, and
the center horizontal bar is held in place by two oversized brass screws.
The most interesting feature of this set is the grill design. It is made
up of small squares of alternating diagonal lines, creating an optical
illusion effect. As an added visual bonus, there is a cloisonne badge at
the bottom right in red with the name "Selfix" in gold.
