This is a new mesh, and means that it's a brand new self contained object that usually does not require a specific Expansion pack (although this is possible depending on the type). It may have Recolours hosted on MTS - check below the description for more information.
Inspired by the November monthly theme of 1950s-1980s vintage items, I made a little 1950s 'Mid Century Modern' TV based on the wonderful quirky Philco Predicta. I gave it two preset retextures, so that you have two models using the same mesh.

It comes in 10 recolours, 5 for each of the two models. Below are: Version 1 in Brown, Purple, Blue, Red, and Green, and Version 2 in Turquoise, Lime Green, Red, Tan, and Pink.



It is found in the TV section in the Electronics catalogue, and costs 395 simoleons. It places nicely on a coffee table or on the floor. The curved screen looks funkily retro when viewing TV programs, although I wish it could play in black & white! I guess we have to think of this as one of the first colour sets.

Nice for retro themed get-togethers (hey, down in front!),



And cozy evenings for two with hot drinks in front of the telly.



Thanks for looking, hope you'll find this useful for your 1950s sims.
