The second radio is a Cossor Melody Maker.

Hi the middle set is a Cossor 501 and the one on the right looks like a Champion but a lot of Kit sets used this cabinet.

If You do a Search on Champion you should find something similar

Sorry crossed with Paul

Cheers

Turning my monitor upside down the radio on the left (that's the one on the right with monitor the right way up) looks like a Champion Meteor, or something based upon that model. The TRF 784 used the same cabinet but with a badge covering one of the control spindle holes.

Incidentally if you need a Knob for the Cossor I can find you one they are not rare.
