I saw this article about a Canadian artist who made a free collection of vintage computer papercraft that can be folded into models:

He released the models to the internet archive:

They look great and the artist went to a high level of detail. I recommend zooming into the PDF format on the internet archive to get an appreciation of it. Here’s an example of the IBM 5100 and 5150 showcasing IBM beam spring and Model F keyboards:

These are pretty sweet!

The 1984 Mac one has snap on screens, simulating the unitasking experience on those machines. Too many games though. Where’s all the interface hacking in ResEdit? And who (besides Susan Kare herself) could paint that chick combing her hair? MacPaint was for other, more rudimentary body parts. :ugeek:
