Hey guys, just got this one done. Took a few weeks to build.
Please xcuse the 'dusty' photos, my camera lens is saturated with mdf dust:(

It did have some 4000mah li-ion batteries in, but ive just taken them out because they were crap(DO NOT buy blue batteries off ebay). So I need to get some more.
Also, I havent done a video yet because its too awkward to hold my iPhone and film at the same time.....vid to follow.

Oh, also, this isn't a commision, so ill be taking offers on it, otherwise it'll go on eBay!

Anyway:
PSone lcd with original backlight
Original GC control pad and custom triggers
2 external player ports and comp-av out for playing on big screen
Built in memory card
CNC cut acrylic case and mdf walls

Great stuff! By far the best looking Gamecube portables on benheck and modretro.
I have nothing clever to say here. Sorry.

Wow! That's fantastic! I know thick-ish GCP's are hard to avoid, but it's so tiny! Congratulations!

A question, would you by any chance be able to sell me a vacformed copy of this case? Or could you possibly release the blueprints from the CNC order? If so, I would love you. Not that I don't already.

If anyone wants the G-codes, pm me your email address and I'll send them. The z codes will need editing to suit the depth of material your machining. Unfortunately I always just delete the dxf drawings after I've cut it as I only really need the G-codes. I don't want to post them because I don't want trolls to come and upload them on other sites.
