However, my model needed to be good enough to build off of, it is not a simple exercise in art. Dimensionally, it is perfect. But it was just a starting point for us.

I think you'll be able to simulate the exterior of the case pretty well based on your work you showed here. It doesn't need to be perfectly accurate....no one will ever be able to tell.
