I am looking for a Russkit controller handle. Must have either Russkit R, not the Parma P, on the handle and must be metallic metalflake.

 

Thanks.


Earl Anderson

I like old retro slot car stuff , I always liked stuff that is different , color preference well I dont remember all the colors they offered , anything as long as its not painted , it does not have to be perfect , the top of the handle can be cracked or even partly missing as I might trim it to fit the controller , thanks

Earl,

Thank you for responding.
I only have one "R" controller handle and it is slated to be modified into a vintage duel micro controller for an article in Slot Cars Magazine.
Only advice I can give you is watch eBay.  Save a search for "Vintage Controller" and one will pop up eventually.

I just dug through the controller bin. All the metalflake ones I have have PARMA moulded in the handle.

 

I found red, green, blue, and gold.

 

Sorry I can't help.

This one on ebay right now is even more vintage.

 

Dude is asking $70.00 for it though.
