A new addition! The BBC Model B

I am of the age that at school we had these beauties in our classrooms. I remember designing many circuit boards on one of these in our Design and Technology classes. Well finally I now have on in my collection.

I have already replaced the power supply capacitors which were ready to explode (This is common on all BBC Micros).

Another mod I have also done is fitted the user port with an MMC interface which allows me to load BBC software direct from an SD Card.

Still plenty of more mods to come. Next will be the raspberry pi co-processor upgrade.

First things first. I’m off to play Elite, happy flying commanders o7
