LEGO tape recorder is a retro-delight

Our younger readers will likely have no idea what this is, but Nathan Wells has built a fantastic cassette tape recorder model. The proportions are spot-on, but my favourite detail is the use of gold rings to provide the little touches of metallic detail in the mic and headphone sockets. Lovely stuff.

But what’s on the tape? Is it a compilation tape, pulled together for a new girlfriend? Or is it a pirated copy of the latest game for the ZX Spectrum? Only Nathan knows, and he isn’t telling.
