What I'm trying to build for now is a "lab implementation" of the final machine. You can see how rudimentary the construction is.

This is the CPU (not finished yet) in its "Lab implementation".

Another view of the CPU.
You can see the BackPlane on the bottom and the "Console Controller Card" behind the Console assembly.

What is in the back is an old open-reel audio tape recorder that I plan to use as a tape drive for the mini-computer.

In here the "Console Controller Card" is visible.

And here is the famous "Console Controller Card"... which is not finished yet.

This picture shows the wiring tecnique employed. Wires are soldered one by one... Yes, very time comsumming.
