Ok another little update changed the position of my usb so its now on the back ..
Tried adding some text to the model, but a bit to small. they are just mockups to get the position in the right place.
i seem to have so many versions at the moment, as i keep tweaking if you have seen my thingiverse page you will probably have noticed.
At some stage i'm going to have to thin it out!!!!

I assume the extra holes under the screen are for the buttons.

Looks good so far.

Looks great, looking forward to seeing more. I really like those 3 buttons on front. I assume when you say 'screen buttons' they are for contrast and menu for the screen?

Did you cannibalize the buttons from the controller or is there someplace where we can buy the buttons separately?
