Has any member or guest more photos for this FADA model 107 Super Fadalette with chassis = RN? Or has anybody a photo of the same looking Fada radio without the third knob for changing the waveband bradcast / short waves? 

In Italy S.I.A.R.E. made practically the same model without short waves. The Model FADA 351a shows also a schematic with broadcast only. The sticker names it FADA Radio Supereterodiny tipo 351a.

I wonder if there is also a similar model with short waves in Italy or why it was made with broadcast only. But when looking at the models from 1933 it is clear that only few models feature short waves - like G30 and ??? from Geloso, 55M from Allocchio Bacchini, Argeste and Fonargeste from Marelli, 581, 591, 600, 601, 602, 603, 604, 605, 612, 620, 621, 622 and 623 from Phonola, Oltremare from SAFAR, some Telefunken models,   

Striking is the fact that practically all models use US tubes, except for one Geloso, for Philips, Pope Radio, SAFAR (2 models only), Telefunken and 1 Unda Radio. Even at least two models with the Wunderlich tube are present like the Olimpionico from Irradio and one finds the Flash-O-Graph for a FADA.

This is quite different to Switzerland or France etc. where at that time you have a mixture of US or European tubes or Germany or the United Kingdom (GB) where they strictly use their own tubes.
