I had use a Minolta Hi-Matic F case for my 35RC before getting the original. The screw hole is in exactly the right place and since both cameras are about the same size, it fits beautifully. The "Minolta" name plate is a chrome plated, single piece attachment that is stuck on with little plastic pegs that poke through the cover, and pulls off pretty easily. It's a perfect solution. If it means you have to buy a Hi-Matic F or G , then so be it; they're pretty cheap and it'll give you another cool camera to play with, though not nearly as cool as the 35RC.
I found in the web that oly35rc can also fits in smena 8m case too.You can see the minolta case in the link below

smena 8m case

I bought a Smena 8mm case for my Olympus 35RC. I found it on eBay, fairly cheap from a vendor in the Ukraine. You have to move the screw over to match with the Olympus tripod opening. It wasn't very difficult. Fits perfectly and provides a ready to shoot case, which you'll never find shopping new cases.

Do you really need a case for the tiny RC? I never use one-just a wrist strap.

Here's my Smena case (not the best photos). You can see how I moved the screw hole. It was very easy; I can tell you how I did it if you want:
