:bravo:

Nice. Its taken a while but now the fun starts.

I see you still have a bit of soldering and desoldering (monitor socket) to do but the meat of the work has been done.

Congratulations!

I can tell that the board was soldered with love, the components are placed really nicely.

I obviously cannot follow my own instructions, so I wired one of the pins to the extra resistor pack rather than the listing motherboard on...

But of course I did this to confuse people later ;)


I have the blitter socket soldered in, and the missing MFP socket, I must've totally forgot to order ones of that size :roll:
