My first portable finally finished!

Post by Clark101 » Sun Aug 09, 2009 4:40 pm

I made an portable NES using a FC Yobo and of course the PSone Screen. I am not as good with making it smooth but i learned a lot from this one and i really enjoy it.

Nice! A tad more sanding and that would be a beaut! What did you use as a starter case?

I agree, a little more sanding would have gone a long way, but fantastic nonetheless.
A truly wise man can entertain a thought without accepting it. A fool cannot withhold past judgments but instead closes his mine to new possibilities. Someone who wants to innovate simply needs to forget what everyone says isn't possible.

Looks marvelous! I bet the cart is very sturdy while playing, what with the little box's support. You should submit this bad boy to the showcase.

Very good for a first system. As you say, you learn a lot from making portables; every time you make one your next is more awesome as you implement ideas not in before and also correct mistakes and techniques from the previous project.
