I have now found a case, admins please mark as found, many thanks.

I am after an old type desktop (not tower) PC case of the 486 era for a DOS PC build project I want to start. the goal is to create an old DOS PC with a 486 CPU for use with DOS games and an external MT-32 I have.

Something like this...

Obviously not exactly as pictured, I am only including it as an example of the type of case I am after.

Can anyone help?

Thanks guys :)

Would a case half the height of your sample picture be any good to you?

Here you go. I need to keep the floppy and CD Drive though.

It includes a box of fittings and was purchased for a plan that never took off :D

That is indeed a very nice looking system you have there and I must admit I am very tempted but it's not quite what I was after, many thanks for the thought and for posting the pic though.
