I would love to have access to some big-ass milling machine to make a unibody aluminum case, then anodize the aluminum in different colors.

Of course this would be super-expensive but with the right case design the result would be amazing.

MSXmakers did a few designs, here is a nice one

Thank you for your kind words but Big smile Big smile Big smile Big smile Big smile Big smile this one was just a failure trying to bend acrylic myself. Hand cuted too.
Here you are some good ones:
This is a customized version from Palver's case built by MerlinKV who adds some nice mods.

This design is from Capsule5000, XL acrylic case:

My favourite one from Aivalahostia (is the same Palver's 3d XL design):

And finally my wood case was moved to my Artemisa MSX1 computer, because it also needed some clothes.

I hope you like.

I made some modifications to one of Capsule5000's acrylic case designs to better suite my needs.
I published the design files and build instructions on my github just in case someone finds it useful/interesting,

Hey I'm new here but am in the middle of an Omega build and going for a separate keyboard like that in Soyod's above. I can't find his original post where he shared it. Does anyone know if those STL's are public? Does this forum allow you to send private messages?

I printed this one from Thingiverse. Very nice SVI-like design. It's sturdy and feels like a real MSX.
