I think I have a couple of these.

Could you post a picture of what you're after just so I can be sure that what I have are the right type?

Best wishes,

Rob

Ah right - I think that's a Valiant "Turtle" rather than a "Roamer".

I do have a couple of turtles but think I only have one control box + PSU and would like to keep at least one working model. However, I believe new, replica control boxes are available to buy.
