Sure thing.

Here's a photo of the VT78 on its table over the tabletop RX02 box.
You can see the bent metal "rails" in the bottom - the drive box just
slides back on those.  Quite minimal.

There are many options, as have been discussed.  The drive mechs and
boards and PSU are quite standard and were available in 2-3
configurations (rackable, DECmate I pedestal, tabletop box,
essentially).  All the internal drives used Berg-40-to-Berg-40 cables.
The external ones used the DB25 arrangement.
