The images above and below aren’t just photoshopped mock ups of the iPhone 5, but actually images of a physical, homemade iPhone based on case leaks, known hardware components, and rumors.

Ben Miller over at BenM.at put together the prototype, equipped with glass for the display and machined from a block of aluminum, Ben describes the process of creating it as similar to the iPad.

The prototype takes the rumored teardrop and rounded back design into account, going from 6.86mm thick at the top to 5.33mm thick at the bottom. It’s also 59.94 mm wide, which is a bit wider than the 58.6 mm wide iPhone 4. You’ll also notice the rumored oval shaped Home button. More images after the break and you can also check out a video here.
