    This along with the model RT, E and C organs are the most elusive. Tom Petro told me that after the war many were junked as some bases also closed. Some were located in NCO clubs as well. If any of you have been in the military you know they will throw out anything without thinking twice. Personally I have never seen one myself but it is significant.

    Well unless some member of this forum comes forward, none of the active members seem to own one, or have easy access to one. Shame.

    But really, aside from the novelty of the carrying handles on the side of the cabinet, it's just a model D with handles and no quatrefoils.

    Notice the styrofoam cups sitting in the back of the model G I posted. Yeah. It totally used to have a chorus generator, as the oiling funnels are still in place. Why else would they put cups there? To catch the excess oil of the still-intact oiling tubes.

    Found an RT, lest my eyes deceive me, that sure looks like a vib/chorus switch in upper left corner. https://houston.craigslist.org/msg/6148689718.html

    David I know where a BA is for free in Washington DC. I didn't know anyone looking and I believe there are a couple flights of stairs. I bought an M3 and 145 from the man and a set of dollies. He collects brass instruments and was knowledgeable about what he had. A tech in Annapolis quoted him 11,000 to restore it. It has been sitting since.

    Anyone interested PM me and I will contact the owner and see if I can pass on his contact.
