Hi thanks for letting me join the forum.
bit late to the party mist both the kickstarters grrrrr but going to go down a diffrent route.
So not wanting to miss out on all the fun I'm building my next from scratch have ordered the clone board and will be Makeing a case from parts in the house and my 3d printer thanks to lockdown.
I will post my progress pictures and the finished frankensein next lol
If anyone has a list of the jumpers on the board this will be really helpfull, eg is there a jumper for led power and a sd card access led, would be a great start and also on the real machine there seems to be a daughter board with the sd card and drive buttons etc can you buy them any where?
A little about me my first computer I bought with the help of my gran with my paper round was the 48k spectrum.
I was I think 12 to 14 can't remember my fav games on the system where things like, manic minor knight lore saber wolf all the classics.
Feel free to say a hello so far got to say the community is so friendly and helpfull bit change from the toxic amiga community.

Welcome to the forum - I have not been around for a while (actually the best bit about forums is the slower pace of life) due to other projects but, good to see new joins to the community . I am sure you will enjoy the build and then the final system.

Hi Gotang, was wondering if you ever went to the Newcastle Computer Club ran by Dave Hood at the Science Museum back in the Mid/Late 80's?
