Smile Admiral control door

Hi, does anybody knows where I can find a replacement control access door to this 1953 Admiral bakelite set? Or at least, does anyone have a picture of such a door, so I can try to make a replica?

Man those things musy have been really flimsy because they are always missing!

I think they were reverse painted plastic and would be hard to reproduce

Capt:
I have almost the exact same set, and Eric is right, door is missing! However I have another Admiral which has a door that measures the same size and has the same mount, but is the reversed painted plastic because the set is like that. Also it is a vertical door but I bet you could extrapolate a close approximation to the original from it. My set that is missing the door is just brown plastic for the adjacent components. Hope this helps!

Marlin,

Thanks for your picture, it┤s similar to a door I saw in an Admiral ad of the same era, so I believe it┤s a good example of what that door have looked like when my TV was new. Eric is right, those things were terrible, because I have a friend who has three sets of that same model, and none of them have that door!

doorless in Admiral city

Well, I picked up another Admiral that was also missing that same door. Looks like the demand might be enough for a repro effort.
