It has 34pin shugart internally as well so the Gotek would work there as well. Only difficulty will be modifying the front panel.

So IMHO, the Gotek is the best option. For the bezel, does it exists a 3D model printer for the Philips MSX2 drives?, seems that both are the same height.

The problem I think is that the front bezel of the HBD-50 is one piece (but I am not entirely certain), so you would have to cut an opening in the bezel. But maybe it is 2 parts and the drive bezel is removable.

@Jipe: didn't knew that strange control management. This had made the diskdrive more expensive than necessary. It also wouldn't run with other disk controller or only as a second drive. I remember some difficulties connecting the HBD50 as a B:drive to a HBF700 back in the days.
@Dimebag: I should have some spare parts here. Are you gonna visit the Nijmegen fair?
