That's a picture from my blog showing my old controller from the 1970s.

It is actually all black, on the launch button is a piece of red electrical tape.
The (raised) Centuri logo was painted white.

One that I have the actual launch button itself is made from orange plastic. Another I have (still sealed) the launch button is black like the rest of the controller.

Mine was all black parts. I looked up the 1972 Centuri catalog.
Their original thoughts were pretty smart, mold everything in black and orange.
The Letra-Line 1 gets the orange body but the black button and key.
The Letra-Line 2 gets the black body but the orange button and key.

I don't know why they quit doing it this way.

Seems like I remember someone at least chatting about wanting to do that in a message thread here, but I donít recall who or which thread.

Someone who has one would have to make a model of it.
I'd love to be able to 3d print one or even better, the MPC controller.
