Cable remote control Answered

Hi all
I am interested in building a specialised tracked vehicle but instead of your "normal" remotes I would prefer a cable remote control that can at least use 12 or more functions. I actually look of building this in to a small Metal Case like you use for camera equipment with a monitor in the Lid and include the battery pack to power everything. 
Anyone got any ideas of how to build such a remote and the outlay of the functions.
I have some knowledge in electric and schematic. I do have a CTC 3D Printer with Dual Extruder but I only just got this one and have so far not used it as I want first to get the feel for it on how to work with it and look up a variety of videos on YouTube before I use this one in anger.
I also do not yet have the Case as I am still bidding on one on eBay. I plan to start the build in September / October and be looking at the moment for a large (1/16 or larger) Tracked Vehicle Chassis. I once did see one in a Chinese Online Shop but cant find it again. I am sure that I bookmarked it but again, I cant find it. So I am looking over various online shops for a set but so far I had no success.
If anyone has build something similar before please get in touch with me as this is my first real project that i would really love to pull of over the winter time to hopefully use next summer.
