Interesting creation, is this a replica 464 case compatible board.  Looks to be made from original components?

The main problem with the 664's are their keyboard membranes, the PCB was/is rather reliable.

My Schneider CPC 664 was fully restored by installing a new one:

This board is designed for the first Amstrad CPC 464 series with joyport on the top, is it right ?
My CPC464 has the joyport on left side together with the audio stereo jack.

Wow, where do you get the Gate Array from? Is it an emulation, or do people need to plug in their own GAs?

Could you perhaps post some documentation for the thing as well?
