    Fresh off the workbench! I started this one for fun many months ago after purchasing a 3D printed N64 portable case from @Downing that he did not plan on using. Although the insides are apparently far behind compared to his current line of N64 portables, I made it work. It's a little rough on the edges but I still love it.

    Specs:
    5" screen (composite boo)
    PS2 joystick
    5amp lithium ion batteries
    Expansion pak
    Glitter, bitches love glitter
    Switching headphones
    Low battery indicator
    Reset button on the front where Downing would put the speakers on/off button
    3D printed NES dpad and then melted with hot air to make it smoother and shiny
    Modeled all the mounting plates myself and 3D printed them instead of using PCB like the original build (oh well)

    So Gman is Downing? Or is Downing Gman? I thought there was a rule against registering multiple accounts.:P

    Great work Gman! Looks beautiful. If there are rough edges to be seen, I ain't seeing 'em.
