Ahhh! The Royal Family Of Ever Ready!

The 'Sky Queen' has a common chassis with the 'Sky King' and 'Sky Prince'. The Queen is the most nondescript excuse of a rexine-covered box I have ever seen. It's redeeming feature is decent sound quality and a groovy clear perspex handle.

I have five of these sets - all in various stages of tattiness - and I am thinking of luridly coloured PVC as new covers to jazz them up a little.
