Custom Final Fantasy VII Midgar PlayStation Case Mod: Shinradical!

by Lambert Varias

Console modder MakoMod gave me a blast of nostalgia with this wonderful case mod. His PlayStation case mod features a scale model of Midgar, the technological pizza that Cloud, Barrett, Tifa and Aeris call home.

MakoMod made the case mod over an 8-month period. He made the scale model itself from scratch out of aluminum and cold-casted resin. He also used optical fiber to add lights to the scale model. Here’s MakoMod proving that the console is fully functional:

The city has a couple of tiny Easter eggs, including Aeris’ church and a tiny figure of Cloud near the train station where we first meet him in Final Fantasy VII.
