this posting is dedicated to the current status of the making of our Replica, which we called officially “The Schaffer Replica”.
So, what’s the current state? As per today, the 26th October 2012, we have:
- Case: Prototyping status
- Electronics: Circuits, Schematics and sound testing done, awaiting case prototype to make the final PCBs (yes, there are two in the final product) fit into the case
We also accomplished to find original SVDS tuner knobs which will be made for us for the most possible original look.
To get further with the case we made a few prototypes in plexiglass to have something in our hands before we order hundred or more metal cases. You know, making sure that everything fits.
So, this is what we have for now, case-wise. We got them from the shop yesterday evening and brought them to our tech Markus for assembling. And because they look so cool (at least we like them), we’ll have a comeback of the Raiders in early November and make a few videos with them.
Have a look at our case prototypes:
