Yesterday, my Lego ZX81 kit arrived. Until very recently, Lego have run a programme where you can design a model in their Lego Digital Designer software, upload it and have a proper set sent to you, complete with instructions and a custom box.
So, I designed a model of a Sinclair ZX81 using the software, uploaded the model and bought a set.
Here are some photos of the model, as well as some comparison shots with a real ZX81.
For non-Flash people, the Flickr set can be viewed here.
I got the dimensions slightly off – the Lego model is slightly bigger than the real thing. However, the proportions of things like the keyboard etc. is about right, so I’m happy with it. I even manged to get a Lego Minifig of Clive Sinclair from the parts available to me!
I have now proposed this as a model for Lego to commercialise. It needs 10,000 votes to be considered. Please vote! http://lego.cuusoo.com/ideas/view/8479
