    Oh wow. That Res is absolutely stunning. It will make a fine centerpiece to the build. Or am I wrong, and this is only one tiny detail of many?

    Hello again!!! Sorry, haven't been here for a while - been busy with work and study.

    For the moment I am trying to resume my work with constructing the computer.
    It has been done quite a lot with this project. I will download in bits.


    For the moment I don't know myself. It mighty few more details. There are two main parts in costruction: Res and turbine.


    I was just using a file and a hack saw...



    Thanks for the comments!

    Made the dial connection and tested it to work;

    How it looks during day time and how it looks during night time

    Also I cut the 8mm brass-copper pipe and made a few rings;
    [​IMG]

    Then I printed the digits on the plain paper and filled it with epoxy glue
    [​IMG]

    (Just testers...)
    [​IMG]

    [​IMG]

    After 24 hours I put it in a water and cleaned the paper off

    Then the dial was tested again and after testing I fixed the "lenses"
    [​IMG]

    The construction of the dial is finished and I'll put it in a safe place until the completion of this project.

    its quite eerie looking that lol.. I like it.. A bit like in one of those films when you go down to the cellar and the furnace is operated with brass dials etc ... with a orange glow .. Well I say you go down ..I mean stupid teenage americans....I digress .. great looking start to this project .. I'll be poping back to look it over again :)
