@DoG , yes you have spotted that the walls in certain places are thicker as we are improving the case to solve weak points. As we have mentioned it's not going to be an exact replica there is no way an original case top will fit nicely on this bottom case and vice versa.

Well at least all the ports line up :)

Hmm - H4's and H5's don't need a modulator port :)

Could be audio out instead? amongst other things
If it ain't broke, test it to Destruction.

Got a reply over at A-F to an old thread of mine regarding ST case color. Turns out the filament maker is local to me.

I'm expecting it to be even closer to the Mega STE, but in any case I'd say this is indeed "good enough"

I think we know what Atari called it, but not the actual color code. This being a filament available to buy off the shelf that seems as close in hue as the color codes I managed to dig up :) Will print a Greaseweazle case with this tomorrow to see the end result.

Cool. Be interesting to see how it looks on a real case :)

Well, there definitely is a green tinge absent in the Ataris. But it's close. Esp. for being off-the-shelf.
