ZX Microdrive replica!

Post by YanKleber » Sat Dec 28, 2019 8:17 pm

I couldn't make a Spectrum replica and do not give to it his buddy ZX Microdrive. I remember when I had my TS-2068 that I considered the microdrives the most exciting peripherals for those computers, not only because they were cute but also because it was a chance of get rid of cassette tapes (well kind of, LOL!). Unfortunately I never had the chance to own one. Actually I never have seen one of those little guys personally, just through pictures.

This one was made out of MDF, PE sheets and paper. It was painted in black with a rattle can and I applied an actual 5mm LED at the front... Of course as any of my replicas, this is not functional and have the intention of being exclusively decorative. :)
