The M31 gallery of...
cool & collected:

Realtones TR-861, TR-555 "Galaxy,"
and two TR-801 "Electras"

6-transistor Realtones TR-861: 3 7/8"H x 2 5/8"W x 1 1/4"D

4-transistor TR-555 "Galaxy," and 6-transistor TR-801 "Electra": 4"H x 2 1/2"W x 1"D

Other than for a rare and very early set with a reverse-painted plastic thumbwheel dial, Realtone found no need at all to use reverse-painted plastic in order to make great looking radios. And I'd almost bet my collection that the "inspiration" for all four of these cabinet designs came from one radio only -- the Sony TR-610.
