Very Very cool.
But just make me think...
€ 380 + International shipping to buy it from Italy.
It would cost the same as OCM or ZEMMIX.
I think it could be a good idea to make a batch production in EU with Plastic and an International version in Aluminium as an "LIMITED EDITION".
So everyone could choose if:
- it's better to have a unique object with an important price
- it's better to have a new MSX at a cheaper price

What do you think about it?

I proposed to make the plastic case, and Mygodess do the PCB, but I've not got answer.
Doing the Mygodess Case in Plastic need adjustements and changes, because original case schematics are made for Iron 1.2mm and plastic case will be done with plastic 3mm thickness.

I asked a price to a industrial, specialist of plastic cases. Price may be around 70 Euros (but must produce 50 units).
They need PCB and Keyboard First, to adapt case, and make a prototype.
Making the prototype cost around 1000€ first.
If I include the prototype price in a 50 units production cost, each case cost around 90€

Jealous! Smile

Btw I was looking at pictures of the Daewoo “IQ2000” CPC-300, it’s also a pretty nice looking MSX.
