I shutter at the price of said chips ... I'll take a kit too.  PS  Mark me down 
for a front
panel kit as well.  Hey I can dream.
I wonder how fast  Bob's terminal could emulate a PDP 10, assuming the CPU
can handle the memory needed - rom & ram. I PDP 11 would be more practical
how ever. It would also make a nice 'BABY' emulator too .... the VGA is now
your Memory CRT's as in the original machine.
