If that was just for your retro gear then you have one big collection ;)

@Icky that Binatone one brings back some old memories, we had that one when I was a kid.
If it ain't broke, test it to Destruction.

Me too. Thats why I got hold of one. I actually bought the colour version (brown case) but when it arrived it also came with the older black and white one (orange case).

The woody has had the scart mod done on it - viewtopic.php?f=18&t=1718&p=37156#p37156

@Icky I've got the orange one in the loft and willing to bet my Mum has still got the other.

And some more, now we are getting into the realms of my Sinclair collection which was my passion before the ST. A lot of these were either my originals or bought at car boot sales when you could pick them up for a tenner. I believe the Sinclair programable calc was a £5 find at a car boot.

That reminds me I must pull the QL out and give it a power on. Nice Sinclair collection.
