M&S do individual rhubarb crumbles (two to pack) and they are black plastic.

The Pye screen images looks really good.

Here is one of my LV20's back after fitting a replacement 'Bowler', this was a cottage cheese container that was the right diameter.
A quick spray of satin black completed the job

Hi John,
The finished set looks great. How did you save the PYE logo whilst rubbing off the lacquer around it?

Regarding the tube neck bowl, there are two types, one made of papier-mache and one made from Aluminium (as in Jac's photo).
Quite frankly all this talk of pudding bowls is too much, I shall have to find some to get my teeth into

Cheers
Andy

As a good citizen you should use lovely water based stuff which will react with the wood glue and loosen all the joints whilst making the veneers swell up, so that you have no choice but to buy a nice new flat screen TV

I've got four tins of Colron spirit dye from the 70s. Smells great, works great and you can mix them. Wouldn't be without them. They'll see me out..

Great job BTW!

Perhaps my rhubard pots aren't so good after all.

Stop all this Rhubarb crumble pot nonsense. I bought 12 just in case I damaged one during conversion. I just needed to add ice cream. After another 12 pots of Strawberry trifle I was not in a fit state to make a decision so the making of the bowler hat will have to wait until I again visit Tesco Stores.

Very simple Peter. I just held an old 2/- piece hard against the Pye logo while I rubbed away the varnish around it. Simple but it worked a treat.

No doubt about it. These little Pye B18T's really do give a picture of good entertainment value. The test is if you can watch a good programme and don't feel you are 'missing' something.
John.
