Guys, I haz an xbox without case at all.
All that I have is that metal ... thing in which mobo n psu lays.
I just want to make a case for it, cause i hate when my things looks like sh!t.
You may say that it would be better for me to buy one from ebay/some other store, but...
Country in what i live called Russia. That changes everything.
No one can even tell me how does first xbox looks like.
And you're lucky, if you can find an joystick for it.
Maybe that can be better if me were in Moscow, but I'm not.
But enough. Really, who did that thing to yr xbox?
Who can describe the full mod, or post some pics?
I appreciate everyone's help.
Sorry for bad English, rly.

So, from what I understand, you are attempting to re-construct a case for an xbox, and need to know what it looks like.

Assuming this doesn't work for you:
IPB Image

How I would describe the case is simply as a black box with a bold "X" on top that extrudes outward about 2mm from the backdrop. In the middle of the "X" is a green circular "gem" that says XBOX in silver lettering.
On the front are 4 controller ports lined up within columns extending downward from the "X", 2 in each column. In between the columns are 2 buttons, power and eject. Eject is about 12mm diameter and above the power button that is about 4mm diameter. Around the Eject button is a "ring of light" 1mm thick.

In ASCII art, it looks like this from the top:

_________     __________
|         \--/         |
|\         \/         /|
| \        .        /  |
|  }     (   )     {   |
| /        '        \  |
|/         /\         \|

It should be fairly easy to replicate using ~3mm plywood

If you want a more detailed description of the case, PM me and I'll take some actual measurements

No, I don't want to make my own case that will look like original.
I simply don't need it.
All that I want basicly is to construct a simple case (maybe not so simple, but...)
All that I need is to put mobo, psu, cdrom etc in something that will look like a case.
So I asked if somebody did that before me(and I remember that I saw this mod in one guy's signature)
