I bought a beautiful Falcon last year. But, The casing has some small mods (holes, and a notch). Are these cases, aside from color, the same as any other Atari model? If so, what model?

The floppy in particular is different. You have to make some cuts to fit an STe in a Falcon case for example. I also remember having to shear off a post or two in there (I put an STe in a Falcon case loooong ago).

Right, the top is reusable apart from the floppy drive hole.

Maybe someone with a 3D printer could make up some STF/E drive slot "shims".

 

Basically a hollow rectangle that you glue over the modded drive bay hold to hide the less-than-machine-accurate cuts made with a drill bit and xacto knife.

 

Would be handy for anyone replacing a failed ST drive with an industry standard 3.5 unit.
