After my misadventures in keycap-land, I was meaning to put the brown keycaps back in the keyboard in my transparent C64 case.
I also was on the lookout for a replacement case, because I grew a bit tired with the transparent case.
I originally got it after the Kickstarter campaign had ended. There were lots of cheap transparent cases still available. I would rather have wanted a blue or red one, but found those too expensive. And now that I have a blue Amiga 500 case on the way as well as a red Amiga 1200 case, I wouldn’t want another red or blue case anyway.
Still, an alternative to the transparent case would have to be found, because it was meant to be see-through, so I could admire the C64 Reloaded mainboard inside it. However, it’s not transparent enough to clearly make it out. And the whole novelty is starting to wear off. It just looks drab to me now. And probably will be even more so, once the Amiga cases arrive (if they ever will…). And I don’t want to have the original cases, because I rather have a more modern interpretation of the old concept.
Some time ago I looked at the cases from Pixel Wizard and found them quite appealing. I was tempted to buy either a breadbin colored one or a SX-64 colored one. Especially after I got a C64 with a white keyboard with the printing on the front a while ago the SX-64 colored case became an option. I just couldn’t make up my mind. Then I came across a guy who was selling an SX-64 colored case and I bit the bullet.
So now, I have to find the time to put everything together.
