Re: Ferrari Amiga A1200

If anyone was going to do it, it would have to be you chap! :ROTFLOL2:
Very different, and imaginative combining both your loves. What's next, a furry miggy with ears mounted on the side? :LOL:
I take it that it's not all show and no go though? What's going under the hood, so to speak?

Re: Ferrari Amiga A1200

That looks incredible! I have to ask, what kind of paint did you use on the that? It's very glossy. Someday when I have the courage, I will do something like this to one of my computers. I should see if you step father will let me use his tools to machine myself a new Amiga 2000 case.... mines all beat up.

Re: Ferrari Amiga A1200

Later on we'll see it on the other bay with a title like "Extremely Rare, Ultra Customized Ferrari Amiga 1200" with a starting bid of ten zillion pounds... And someone will buy it! ;)

Seriously though, it looks great!

:thumbsup2:

Re: Ferrari Amiga A1200

greetings from Monaco.
this may be the last time i'm here if Ferrari do indeed pull out of F1 ;o(

anyhoo, thanks for your comments so far and i shall try to answer your questions, it'll have the Apollo 1260 installed with 32mb, a scandoubler, 3.1 roms, idefix, 60gb 2.5" drive and a slimline dvd drive, yes Kin the legs are to give more clearance for the 1260 cooling, Zettypoos = i'm going to use red or white lettering for the keys, haven't decided which yet.

the paint used is a Corsa Rosso Ferrari red (what else?) and the black is called Stone chip gloss black (it's VERY tough and as the name says it doesn't chip- important for the keys i thought)
and Sky don't hold your breath for the Ebay thing, once my a1200 towers sale has finished this will be my only Miggy, this is why i wanted to personilize it for me, i don't think it is fooling anyone into it being a Ferrari Amiga lol

anyway i'm back off to the pool and another beer, talk to you all later :beer: :pint:

Cheers, JuvUK

Re: Ferrari Amiga A1200

LOL Juzzer. :LOL: Have some for us all m8y! :pint:

In Rosso Red & with an 060 under the hood m8, don't ever think you have anything Less than a Ferarri of an Amiga!

Here's hoping a few more Beers & that Monaco Sunshine doesn't cloud your Vision m8y. It's looking really good so far. (y)

Re: Ferrari Amiga A1200

Hmmm.... not enough air scoops, flared arches and alloy 'bits' for it to be really 'Ferrari' though..... it needs that 'Testarossa' touch.....looks nice though.... :drool:

It probably needs a nice V12 sound when Workbench loads too!

Re: Ferrari Amiga A1200

*cough*

Where was the thread I said you could coume up with something akin (no phun intended) to ur Job?

It might be Kim @ Weekends, but I make a lousy secretary during the week, even in a mini-skirt & high heels! :jester:

Hope ur havin' a ball (or 2) there m8y, you lucky lucky lucky fella! - I think ur gunno have to do a "Photo Report" on ur break in the Photo Booth when you get back! :mrgreen:

RE the White letters on the Keys, be sure you get those babies that dont show the Transfer opacity. Some do but have a solvent you smear on them to remove the transfer detail. Perhaps others know of Letraset that leave no transfer film trace. Zeets is prolly the guy in the know tbh! :wink:

Re: Ferrari Amiga A1200

right!!! i'm back and i have been busy :nod:

here's the first update, have lettered up the keyboard and painted the floppy eject button black.

it's pretty much assembled now but i can't test it as I don't have a 200W psu (hint@Zetr0 :ROTFLOL2: )
