[PROJECT] TRS-80 Black and Green

Recommended Posts

 For quite some time I have been wanting to create a TRS-80 just for me.

So I started with a TRS-80 Model 3 case skin set
- Repainted shiny Black
- Installed a Model 4 TRS-80 Motherboard, FDC and RS232C
- 128 Kb of Ram (to be upgraded later to 384K)
- Installed a"Langley St-Claire" Green CRT
- Two half-height floppy drives "JU455" (360k) from Panasonic with full faceplates
- changed as many keys on the keyboard to be as black as possible

Starting to look like this:


But continuing on the "Black and Green Theme", I started adding Green LEDs under the keyboard


Other things still to be done or considered:

- Green LEf Lighting of the underside of the case
- High-resolution Graphics card
- Matching External FREHD + Gotek unit
- Two Speakers of 3 Watts, and Amplifier mounted internally with earplug jack and volume control.
(Possibly) Orchestra 90 Music Card
(Possibly) TTKL to VGA Video card with external connector to plug in VGA Monitor.

more to come...
