Hi,

nice...

Two of mine (both unused original 48k, one signed by the german resellers of the 1970th/early 1980th):

The case and molded accessories are available. :D

Have a lot of fun...

P.S.: Here a pic from the case including the protective sheet before the fingerprints have been added. It's an unused top case which has been a spare part from 1983... :D

P^2.S.: As a collector surely I won't sell them... ;->

Bug*er me, I've got a grands worth of those in the attic! Doubled up with the 128k Daley Thompson's Supertest and I can put the deposit down that summer house in Tanganika!

The machine is a design classic.

Sure, they’re not always amazingly responsive, and the membrane wears out quickly, but the whole unit just looks lovely.
