Interesting, I'm not really into replicating a case personally because the yellowing doesn't bother me and I don't have a 1200, but I have done reverse engineering and modelling then manufacture of motorcycle parts and the weapon of reverse engineering choice there is to take sample points with a cmm arm and then import it into 3d cad program of choice, solidworks, inventor etc using the measured reference points to establish the critical locations of fasteners etc accurately in reference to some established plane. So if you know someone who works in quality control at a manufacturer, they often have a portable cmm for final verification purposes which could measure your case in work one lunchtime or something.
3d scanning I'm not so taken with also, it takes a age to clean up the part into a form suitable for processing and manufacturing from if its the sole source.
