Castaway's Radio

Gilligan's Island

I'm showing my age, but I've always loved the radio the castaways used on Gilligan's Island. It was so iconic on the show and it’s a beautiful 60s radio design. So, I built my own. The face of the radio was designed in Fusion 360 and 3D printed. The rest is made by hand from Styrene, acrylic, aluminum, brass, etc. I really loved getting the logos and graphics to look period accurate. The actual radio for the show is a late 60s Packard Bell AR-851. The handle at the top and the large antenna were added to make it more interesting.
