Phantom or Masterpiece set of Brass backplates wanted

Posted on March 13, 2021 at 12:19pm 2 Comments

I'm working on finishing a Masterpiece radio project and I'm trying to round up some missing parts. I'm looking for a set of brass backplates that go behind the knobs for a Phantom or a Masterpiece. Does anyone here have a set of these they are willing to sell?

Thanks!


David
