Thinking of building a K'nex Chassis

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I'm thinking about doing a build log, but building the case from K'nex? Anyone seen this before or think its a good idea?

Only if you add a floppy drive and incorporate something as good as the power switch seen in the picture.
But.. It is customizable. I say do it.
