Mini85 - before holidays

Just before going for a week of holidays in Sardinia I thought it would be interesting to post a picture of Mini85 as it is now. The 3.5 inch drive and the connection to the board. I'm sliming the board as much as I can. I think it is possible to remove one IC or another and/or change one or two of the ICs by one with more or different functions. For now it boots CP/M.
I'm also trying to develop a AltairZ80 SiMH configuration that resembles the Mini85, I managed to have a 8080 system with 32k of RAM, but then I couldn't build the operating system. I'm also having some issues with the disk format, although I'm using P112 format it only works well in a cp/m 3 configuration.
