coming along nicely.....

the screen does look a little wonky though, but that could be the photo angle....


NB: i think this is in the wrong section

Nice work! Moved to show off section.
i still feel this is in the wrong place (IMHO)....
even though its not exactly a Game Boy Zero, its still a Game Boy build....
its gonna/might get overlooked being here (with so much action happening over on the other section)...

Yeah, unless we create a Kite CM3 Circuit Sword Gameboy Section it won't exactly fall under any of the current categories :lol:

You are right though so I moved it again, thanks :D
