Well done sir.
But why so many of the same model? Wouldn't it be more fun to have one really good example of every amiga rather than multiples?
Also, isnt the 3500 a prototype and so doesnt count in a collection of production models? And aren't the ux models exactly the same hardware just supplied with amix and bundled with a few hardware upgrades?

Do you have pal/ntsc variants of every model?
Do you have examples of every motherboard revision?

I'm impressed and fascinated!

I'm planning to do all those upgrades (time and money allowing) when I get my A1200 from Petro. Prolly the first thing I'm gonna get is CF card.

In other words, he's completely cuckoo. But then again, so are most people who spend money on hobbies if you look at it rationally.

I don't like it when people decide to make their Amiga black, as it's making CDTV keyboards even rarer when people are chopping them up to pimp a boring old A500 or A1200.

I wondered how he did the white letters.

If you own it and you pimp it and you love your Amiga even more. Then this is a good thing in my opinion.

They got everything right when they built the Amiga, everything but the way it looked. (even the ST was better looking)

Cool, didn't know you could get stickers like that.

Edit: Just now noticed that you're missing the special Amiga keys. Someone should make an Amiga sticker set. A set of black text on white background stickers could also be an alternative for retrobrighting a badly yellowed keyboard by painting it all white and applying the stickers. Then it shouldn't go yellow again.

I guess one could spray some clear laquer on top of the keys with the stickers to make them more durable and prevent the stickers from coming off.
