I can't (smallest 11 I have is an 11/03 with MXV11 and a Baydel floppy
controller in an H9273 with an ex-PC PSU), but I once wanted to put
together a system to control some other device that had serial ports,
and the easiest way seemed to be to use an 11/03 or 11/23 processor and
an MXV11. I got as far as setting aside a dual-height processor, an
MXV11, and a PSU, and obtaining a set of DEC connectors to build a 2x2
backplane, but it never got assembled.
