Hello guys,

I've got old model Raspberry Pi model B, first one, from 2012. I've just found it in the shed, it haven't been used for few years now, but after reformat it's going strong with new Raspbian Stretch Smiley Love this hardware.
So I am looking for enclosure for Raspberry Pi B. That's this model: http://socialcompare.com/en/review/raspberry-pi-model-b

Anyone got one and is willing to ship a piece of acrylic/plastic to UK? I will pay shipping. Doesn't matter if it used or new.

Alternatively, if someone knows how to search and filter results on ebay or Aliexpress (there is thousands of Raspberry Pi 3 cases there and I can't filter them out), please let me know Smiley Thanks!

I tried out some searches for you and indeed, it's hard to fine tune.
But I think I may have been lucky. A google for raspberry pi 1 case b site:aliexpress.com switch to image results and a certain image caught my eyes.
The result gave me this: https://www.aliexpress.com/item/Free-Shipping-Dust-Lightweight-Acrylic-Shell-box-For-Raspberry-Pi-A-1-model-B-Case/32333855842.html which may be what you need.
But you better make sure with the seller it's exactly what you need though.

Not an exact answer to your question, but i've bought my case from fasttech... Dirt cheap and you can pay using crypto (i can vouch for this)... IIRC, if you look at these cases, some have images with the actual specs.

https://www.fasttech.com/category/1017/raspberry-pi

For example, this one is available for loads of models:
https://www.fasttech.com/products/1017/10013654/7219800-protective-plastic-box-enclosure-for-raspberry-pi
You can pick this brand for different models by using the dropdown at the right... Altough i could only find this case for a B+, not a B (i don't know if their form factor is the same)

Even if the form factor is wrong, you would have only lost two bucks Wink

Thanks for all replies guys. Finally, I bought this one:

https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/253474148151

£2.40 shipped, that's 3.15 USD. Will be with me in 3 to 5 days.
In the meantime, I will get my USB hub ready for some little miners Smiley

Isn't that neat? 6 years old Pi working away just like new. Smiley
