Hey there folks, this is more of a request than an up...
Anyway, i'd like to ask any lucky fellow Amigan who happens to own such a beast, if it ain't a problem, to please try taking a good shot at the top front panel, the one with the LEDs and the key switch.
I know there's plenty of pics around the internet, but what i'm looking for has to be shot without an angle (meaning, the lens of the camera should be in parallel with that panel). And while you're at it, it'd be best with good lighting -or perhaps use of flash- due to colours showing differently in other cases!
I know i'm asking for much, but it has to do with another replica i'm thinking of materializing...:nuts:

Thanks in advance!(y)

Snapped a picture. It might not be the clearest but you can see the detail that you asked for. Let me know if you need a clearer picture or if you need more of the front of the case. -Edit- Sorry I didn't read everything you had written. When you say you want it with out an angle, do you mean to the drive area or the are where the LED's are? The LED are is at an incline of 45 degrees versus the front of the case. If you need me to take another picture let me know and I will do so. I don't have anything else going on today.

@Nathanieltolbert:
Thank you so very much for your efforts! The angle and the subject is perfect! You got a shot just like i wanted it!!! True, the sharpness isn't so good, but if you can't focus any better i'll try to use some filtering software :) Nevertheless, that's how i needed it (y) To clearly understand my thinking, i was planning on bringing the photo to the actual dimensions of the panel, and take it to someone who would do a quality print out of it.. Since (as you stated) you've got time, measuring the perimeter of that panel (the rectangle's outline) would also save me some time! ;) No hassle intended my friend.
I trully appreciate it!

The inside height is approximately 1 and 3/16 inches high and it is 5 and 7/8 inches wide. There is an angled edge around the rectangular cutout at a 45 degree angle inward. This is approximately 3/32 of an inch wide. The width of the full front panel is 6 and 3/4 inches wide approximately and approximately 24 and 1/2 inches high I think. I apologize but being a recipient of the American public schools I don't know those measurements in centimeters. You could probably convert it faster than I can. Is there any other information I can assist with? I will attempt to take a better picture of the front. I will need to move the tower to a more brightly lit room. I will do that later today. I will also leave the picture at full resolution so it can be of more use to you.

Gee thanks! Inches is perfectly alright! I sure hope this isn't asking too much from my side, i didn't want to get you into so much trouble -carrying the tower around and all that- my friend! :)

It won't cause any problems. It just takes a while to remove all the cables and then set it on the table. Unfortunately my workbench doesn't have any direct sunlight. Here are some pictures, not as good of an angle as in the original but considerably clearer.

Well folks, just to keep you updated, Nathan's photos weren't taken for no reason, this is the lady that required them! :D

Although my initial intentions were to build from point 0, i was more than just lucky to have found this case. Nevertheless, just the panels and fascia. So, Nat's pics will certainly help build 'er up. (y)
And a special thanks to Walkero for the rest of the assistance in this.
Thank you both , dudes! :D

@tokyoracer: You know what, there's an old saying around here, that there's a wicked, magic, haunted (and other variations along the way) cave much like an actual one named Daveli's cave. It is believed among several hard-core classic Amigans that one day that cave will open, and the hidden treasures of CBM will come out in public! But that's just an imaginary tale, alas, the truth is i ran into this once-in-a-liftime lucky auction over at evilbay! :)
However, seeing as every few days something new shows up around here and there, i can't help but hope that the aforementioned cave might actually exist! :D

Hmmmmmmmmmmm so you are looking for a high resolution scan of the front panel key part thingy? I think I can help... I have one of those panels spare, I could put it through a scanner....

A fitness test shows that the dimensions were just right. :)

Now it's time to drill the led's holes and then using the key as power ON/OFF, right?

@rkauer: nah, i wouldn't be able to obtain a certificate of authenticity from CBM if i do that! :LOL: Anyway, i can't just leave the switch flat as a pic, gotta find an identical, or similar and mod it... It will be connected in series with the lock of course.

If the print is in plastic you can use a momentary switch (the same as the internal one in C= mice) behind the power button image to a little circuit to toggle the PSU on or off.
