Check out this watercooled case mod which was built from scratch by Richard Swinburne an inspired by the art deco stylings of the 1920’s and 1930’s Zenith radios.
The Art Deco style was captured using replica radio dial, dial glass, escutcheon (dial bezel), and knobs for around $120 to give it that authentic look and feel.
I spent a lot of time researching and looking around at literally hundreds of antique radio pictures online. Many radios do not have a shape that can reasonably be replicated for use as a computer due to the space and placement constraints of components. It is also necessary to find really good pictures of a radio in order to be able to build a case after it. There are a number of radios that I could build after and like, but there simply aren’t enough detailed photos of them to come up with a fairly accurate design.
