'The Thing' - a FM Towns Marty FDD emulator - final revision

A quick update about "The Thing", the FM Towns Marty FDD emulator I made some time ago :

'The Thing' - a FM Towns Marty FDD emulator

The project recently has undergone a redesign and now it's mature for a release.I changed the layout of the main board and added a control sub-board.Now everything can lie inside the console :

Like the previous version, the emulator is powered by the open-source Flash Floppy firmware and it loads disk images from an USB storage (thumb drive or HDD).

'The Thing' can be installed normally on Marty consoles modded with DocBrown, the optical drive emulator designed by Deunan :

But you can dislocate the control sub-board externally therefore you can use 'The Thing' on stock consoles, too.
