My back is getting better, so I here is some progress:

All sockets in place, only some of the resistors are missing, and then on to the fixes. I'm positive I get it finished this year :mrgreen:
I believe your battery holder is in backwards. Also don't forget r908 as I did.. gives you 20 bombs.

Already fitted, thanks again :)

All parts are now soldered in and on, at least my list has everything striked off. Will now clean the rear (easier, when there are no bodge wires) and then apply the missing patches.

One wire to many on the buffer bypass for HDD. You need to remove the leftmost wire.

Sadly no time anymore for a test run, will have to wait a bit... And I have to admit, I am a little scared ;)

It's alive :mrgreen:

Haven't fully tested it because of a lack of working floppy drives, but at least got it to run GB6. Seems quite stable to me, and no complains about the video quality either.

The DAC is getting quite hot, is that normal?

Great work @IngoQ, another H4 is born.

Yes the DAC does get hot.
