1. I finally fixed the back (The back was too long and extended past the correct length) So I hammered it out, then re-bent the metal and added more rivet holes) and now the door can close correctly and open to it’s full length!
2. All of the new buttons came in (It took me a year to find the right buttons to match the original plans, I went with the EAO #61 series switch from Allied Electronics)
3. I need to find a magnifying glass that will make the LCD look like a CRT screen with bent edges. Any Suggestions would be welcome!
4. I definitely need to have a 5 1/4” floppy drive
But something does ring true in this film, when the older plane says he just ‘fades away,’ it’s true, a lot of military aircraft (especially the larger ones) are only seen for the period they are manufactured, and then scrapped or recycled after they are found to be obsolete. Like the B-36 bomber, it was the largest piston driven aircraft with 385 built, and now there are 4 left, none airworthy.
Here’s a better idea. A brand-spanking MGB using new-original parts on the surface, and new-modern systems underneath. It’s got a 215bhp tuned MX-5 engine, and matching six-speed box. That’s 215bhp in 941kg. Which should get you awake.
If I didn’t have a Classic British Automobile already, this would be what all of my paychecks would be saved for! This is pretty darn Cool!
Finally got my Keyrah Commodore 64 keyboard interface today!
I can use the C64 Keyboard on my modern computer, it has a USB port and joystick interface, along with 2 keyboard setups, one for daily Windows use (Which makes the keys have the same placement as modern keyboards), and one for Commodore 64 Emulators.
Now I just need to build a case- Which to do, a 1970’s business tan or a wooden case?
