Default Battery scan B103

I am about to make an Ever Ready Batrymax B103 replica. I have seen a scan of one on the internet complete with sizes already for printing. Does anyone know where I've seen it. This is the really large combined 1.5 - 90v battery.

John.

Post #2 here might help John:

https://www.vintage-radio.net/forum/...=Battery+Scans

Also, Tony Thompson (Aerodyne) said the he has B103 graphics on his website, but the link is now dead. See post 31 at this link:

https://www.vintage-radio.net/forum/...y+Scans&page=2

You may know that Tony's interests have developed in other directions from vintage radio and he hasn't visited the forum since January, but I'm sure you'll have his email address so might wish to drop him a line.

Hi David, That was quick, post was good but not as I remembered. #4 was the one after Joe had cleaned it up, Thanks Joe.

And Thank you David.

A quick look at #31 did not work for me, but I am ok with Joe's work. Its a shame if all Tony's brilliant work can not be accessed.

John.

Hi John
Hope it's going well! This is a bit expensive but assume it's a fully working replica

Hi Howard, they look the part, but I have plenty of time while I try to find two DF97s one was worn out and another has gone to air. I think I can make a convincing job out of plywood, with one of Joe's labels to finish it off.

John.

Sounds a good plan John

Do let us know how you get on and good luck with the DF97's
