    Wow! Great job! If this wasn't blend swap I would think that you were selling the real thing on eBay!

    Awesome! Nicely detailed. You almost expect that if you lift the top, there will be an actual board inside. And then you do and there IS a board inside... albeit just a texture. But for a moment there I was stunned. ;) Very very nice work!

    Hey i had the commodore 64 for about 28 years. That is nostalgia. It had 64 KByte workspace (!!! ) and (i belive) a Motorola 6502 CPU (without a graphic processor or something else). Thanks for sharing it with us.

    Indeed, no gfx processor; it was all done through the CPU (like most if not all of the home computers of that era). The C64 has a dedicated sound chip called SID (also like most of the consumer computers back then).

    Commodore 64 has a dedicated graphic chip. Its name is VIC II (NTSC and PAL) and it has 16 K of memory to manage screen, fonts and sprites. Screens are 320x200 (160x200 using extended colour mode which doubles horizontal pixels), three text modes (standard, multicolor and extended) and two screen modes (hires and multicolor), 16 sprites, scrolling register and one of the most important features of this little gem: the raster. Unlike other computers of that time C64 allows to manipulate the raster behaviour (stop, slow motion, directions, starts from a preferred point of screen, etc) so to create different effects (more than 16 sprites and smooth scroll are the most knew). This was and still is a great 8-bit machine!

    Thanks for your detailed info that's correcting my wrong assumption... I used to own a ZX Spectrum back then you see!

    Nice modeling and texturing. In 1978, I purchased a Heath Kit which was a box full of parts to solder to the motherboard. The first one I put together shorted out when I turned it on and blew one of the vacuum tubes to pieces. The second one I built worked. I've been putting together my own custom computers ever since.

    You brought back good memories of the early days of personal computers.

    I have the same sort of experience with the Science of Cambridge MK14. It must have been around the same time. We got the thing working without a glitch. SoC later became Sinclair Research of ZX81 and ZX Spectrum fame...

    I missed this one. Was my first computer. Had to know 6502 (6510) assembly language to do anything interesting. And the 1541 floppy drive? It took all day to load a 20k program.

    Thanks for the memories.

    A very nice job, thanks! My inner 5-year-old has reawakened.

    And just for fun, I'm converting this model to use in DAZ Studio 4.8.
