remote control roundies

Remote roundies are probably my favorite sets, to me they just seem to strike the right balance between advanced modern technology and good old fashioned quality. Now that I seem to be finding these, I'm curious how many and what models are still around. What do you all have?
My 2: 1960 RCA CTC-10 "Wynnewood", 1964 Zenith 25MC33 SC400 chinese cabinet

Nice sets! My only remote roundie is my Space Command 400 Zenith with the 25LC20QS chassis. It is my avatar. I hope to be finding more soon. There is a possibility a CTC 10 Glendale may come my way in the future, IF all goes well. Keeping my fingers crossed.

I'm jealous. That zenith set is simply gorgeous. You'll never find one of those in that condition in a good long while.

You seem to find all the cool stuff!

Now I'm jealous! I want to see it. I have never seen a 29JC20 Zenith in person before. I saw the brochure once, but never the set. I forget the model name too. Way cool!

I've got a '7 with remote. The novelty wears off after you realize it won't work the cable box

But it's neat with an antenna.
