Hi guys, I am looking for one of these radio (back)packs for our local pionier section:
Image

Does anyone know of an affordable source? I have to be honest, we are planning to replace the internals with regular PMR sets for field use - so a reproduction would probably be a far better idea (instead of butchering an authentic set).

Any help or advice would be appreciated, thanks.

This might be of use.

I am currently building two German Feld Fu Backpack Radio's. Made from wood and 'airsoft' ready. They will 'look a bit like' the original, but they will not be a 100% copy.

Original dimensions of a Feld Fu radio are:
Outer dimensions with covers: h x w x d = 33 x 12 x 35.7 cm.
With front cover removed the depth is 34.5 cm.
The radio panel measures h x w = 29.3 x 9.5 cm

Kit list for 1 radio:
Wood made from 18mm multiplex:
2x front/back panel, lxb = 333 mm x 294 mm (A)
2x lower/upper panel, lxb = 333 mm x 84 mm (B)
2x side panels lxb = 330 mm x 120 mm (C)
4x beam 32x32mm x 330mm (D)
4x pieces of 'quarter round wood' 18x18mm x 330mm (E)
And some small wood for the feet, antenna mount and side panel-fixation.

Items:
2x clasps (F)
2x leather piece with hooks (G) (hiki shop)
2x corner profiles, big (H)
2x corner profiles, small (I)
2x small plates (J)
2x bolts with nuts and washer (K)
1x weft bolt with washer (L)
2x corner profiles, 10x10mm x 1000mm (M)
1x post-war canvas strap (N)
1x flat-antenne, (O) (postwar real-deal)
1x headphone (P) (real-deal WW2 English one)
2x leather straps (Q) (or german Y-belt)
2x D-Ring with mount plates (not pictured)

Picture Album of the build, till now (lot's of pictures in their original size!):
http://www.ww2airsoft.eu/media/thumbnails.php?album=208

Overview of the parts:
Image

And now on with the building pictures:

Had the wood sew for me.
Image

The building the first case.
Image

Glueing the 'quarter round wood' and started to work on the second case.
Image

Feet attached with the corner profiles (small) bent:
Image

All quarter round wood glued, feet applied, corner profiles (big) attached with screws, and drilled holes for the bolts to attach the leather straps + hooks to them.
Image

This is how the 'ribs' are going to look like:
Image

Antenna mount created and fixed ontop, leather straps hooked up to the case with antenna:
Image

Right side panel, this panel can be opened, the other side is screwed to the case and can't be opened:
Image

Right side panel with a simple 'wood construction' to keep the panel in it's place. Also made an opening for the head and microphone wires.
Image

Attached carrying 'handle' made from a canvas strap
Image

This is the current state of the radio:
Image

Image

Still todo:
- attach all 'ribs'
- attach the D-ring loops ontop of the case
- attach the clasps ontop
- finish the 'on/off' switch
- create wood-made microphone

Ta, I have also sent that guy a PM about getting a replica. The gent in the first link is from Norway, and makes full-steel replicas that look amazing - but given our intended use, I daresay the Dutch model (as posted above, in wood) might be better, and more affordable.

Try this link, probably the best route for making your own with your specific internal requirements installed etc.

I am the builder of the wooden Torn Fu B's. Currently I have done 2 and not going to build any more. I am willing to assist others with advice and/or measurements from the ones I made.

Askhati bought the repro from Norway, which for sure looks much better then mine. But they also cost a bit more ;)

So, a few pictures in use;
