I've never liked the gx4000 case but before everyone starts throwing things at me it is growing on me.
But very slowly.


However it looks really good in a black colour.
Maybe I should jazz up one of mine.

Ah yes! I know the machines from this guy! There are all quite beautiful chimeras and, as far as I know, he sells them, although I imagine that they are pretty expensive. Certainly, instead of being black, I would prefer some decals of Johnny Turbo on this one. OK, it is not a Turbo Duo, but close enough  :laugh:

Not that I often care about how a console looks all that much (cos if you're spending that much time gazing at the machine rather than at the TV screen playing the games then something's wrong) but that does look pretty cool.  Certainly far better than the PC Engine's original case and the black makes the GX4000 case much more sleek looking and appealing.
Favorite CPC games: SwitchBlade, Stryker in the Crypts of Trogan, Turrican II, UN Squadron, Oh Mummy

Looks way better in black to be honest. It would actually encourage me to paint over the beige.

Hmmm...
Currently playing on: 2xCPC464, 1xCPC6128, 1x464Plus, 1x6128Plus, 2xGX4000. M4 board, ZMem 1MB and still forever playing Bruce Lee.
No cheats, snapshots or emulation. I play my games as they're intended to be played. What about you?

Wow, that looks really nice. I'm tempted to spray paint my GX4000 but I'd probably miss the authentic beige and want another one. They're getting expensive now too compared to what they were when I got mine. I blame Larry Bundy Junior for telling everyone they're exploding and getting rarer!

Saw this while on vacation. It really does look great and given that the GX has ample space inside I guess it's a good choice for a media player or emulation station if painted...
