It looks entirely possible, and I think quite a valuable and desirable radio.

It's certainly possible to restore this radio, but you need to decide if you want to keep it as a static item or a fully functional set. A full professional restoration will be expensive, and there's not that much to listen to on MW/LW nowadays.

Thank you for your replies , I guess it would depend on the cost of each option, and if there is anyone out there that could give me a rough estimate and undertake the work

I would be prepared to take on this set for restoration. Quite a distance from you though and not an easy set to ship (although possible).

Let's wait and see if there are any other takers who are closer to you first, but if not then happy to discuss.
