Gramophone Needles

Gram. Needles

Having bought a resin 8" high model of Nipper and with little else to do on the gramophone front, I decided to build a model of the Trade-Mark Gramophone used in the famous painting by Francis Barraud.  The model was scratch built, in other words not from a kit but from bits lying around the home and workshop although I did have to source the flare of the horn from a local flea market,  (one of those dreadful mock post horns that adorned many a 1970's home along with the equally awful print of a very nice Malayan lady) and a sheet of brass.  The photos speak for themselves and where they don't I've added a note or so.
