I am making a miniature IBM 1401 scale model

Another miniature diorama, this one of a IBM 1401.

This is an IBM 1401 scaled model I am working on, part of a diorama. It is a scratch build made of polystyrene mostly. I make everything by hand, no 3D printing involved.

The IBM 1401 is a computer from 1959, considered to be the first successful mass produced computer. I have been working on this miniature diorama since December last year, to celebrate its 60th anniversary.

Wow, this is some detailed modeling!

Very Nice Indeed. Should you add blinking lights,
That uControler will have more that power than
the real thing.
