Default My AltairKit arrived!

I received it yesterday. I opened it up quickly, and took a look at it, then put it back in the box. I have been wrestling with whether I should start building it right away, or put the kit under the Christmas tree and start after the holiday. Today I got the kit out again, opened it up and took some pictures.

Then I put it back in the box. It looks great, but I'm going to try and wait until Christmas!

I started a webpage to show the step-by-step assembly of the AltairKit. Right now, it just has details of the eBay auction, and on Unpacking the kit. I was able to take over 50 pictures, just of unpacking everything. It all looks fabulous.

The web page is at: http://www.ez80sbc.com/AltairKit/

Thanks again Grant, for putting this kit together. It should a real joy to assemble, and I guess that's why I want to savor it until after the holidays.

Howard

Thanks for the note Howard! I noticed you resisted opening any of the parts packages!

Thanks for all of the pictures. Sometimes I forget that "I" did it. It looks too good!

Thanks for the update Howard, but we didn't get to see the inside of the envelopes!

Are you going to continue work on the kit these next few days? I'll be waiting for an update!
