Atari 5200 Flashback

Recommended Posts

I would think raspberry pi in a flashback 1 case?

 

NM Your other post came in right before mine I see you made a case for it.

I would just use a flashback 1 case I know it was modeled after the 7800 but I think they look similar enough.

 

EDIT:

Also is this going to be setup to use the real 5200 controllers? If so and went my route you would have to do some modification to the case for the controller ports but I think it would be the way to go to have a nice looking 5200 flashback.

The 7800 have more of a rounded shape

 

That is true and the flashback 1 was modeled after it but I was just thinking it would be good enough and maybe even replace the sticker on the flashback 1 with one printed up that has all the grooves like on the 5200.

 

EDIT:

It is your project I know is just in beginning stages I was just trying to give ideas. What you are doing may look better than what I'm thinking when you are done with it as I don't know what all else you plan on doing with the case or if that is just an early prototype or what.

Is there a shop where i can buy just the flashback 1 case

 

Try thrift stores. I don't hunt anymore but the few times I do stop in a thrift store I do see them kicking around cheap.

Do you know anyone in Germany with a 3D printer that would be good with taking a 5200 and drawing it out in CAD software so you can have a smaller version?
