Without any shadow of a doubt, this is the best yet.
Dare i say, having handled the frankly flimsy original, yours looks better!

Good job.

Now tell us about the specs!

thanks DDNI

specs aren't too pretty.

it is a dual core2 with 4gb of ram, dvd burner, car reader, a keyrah so i can use Amiga joysticks, all standard stuff i'm afriad.

i am going to redo the rear panel so it will take a standard PC back panel, then any motherboard under 245mm will fit making the case future proof and easily upgradable

The Walker looks like a vacuum cleaner, the box like a cheap China DVD player.

Thats AMAZING! Good work I always wanted that case too but really dont have the skills to pull it off so I went and did the MCC for home media system, http://www.vincentperkins.com/AmigaNG/build.php
kinda pleased with how it turned out considering I do very little handy work. Would love to see a person with real skills make one however. ( hint, hint)

If you ever consider selling this, drop me a email
