They are strange-looking sets, indeed. I was wondering if the green was original, and looking at Radiomuseum, it would appear so. Well done on getting it going

Is the fascia plastic, then? I seem to remember that there's another set constructed in a similar way with a cream-coloured front. Might be a Marconi…

I'm no expert but I think the face is a form of plastic or bakolite. It's certainly not metal. Part of me thinks these HMV sets were effectively re-branded Marconi's.
