I doubt there are any pics of it

David Ramsey on the folklore page said this about the Big Mac (in reference to Macpaint which was developed on a Big Mac):

"Most of MacPaint was developed on a "Big Mac" prototype-- a computer that was a design study for the next Macintosh. Basically it was a 16mHz 68020 version of a Mac Plus. Cases were never made, so it was simply a 1 foot square circuit board mounted on a piece of wood, connected to a 10 megabyte SCSI hard drive."
