Arrival!!! In the point of view of the GPS  ;D
(http://www.atarimania.com/franck/rt12.jpg)

I call the seller, I have to go back what is a "little" bit complicated with a van with this kind of road:
(http://www.atarimania.com/franck/rt13.jpg)

Very dangerous place!!!   :D :D

Oopppsss

The team forgot to take the camera at the arrival, so no pictures of the cabinet, for the moment   :oops: but the picture of Hi is a very good clue

Now, as the cabinet is on thee van it's time for the lunch... No Burger King so let's take a British meal:
(http://www.atarimania.com/franck/rt15.jpg)

After the meal... shopping, shoes for Ms. and a toy for Jr. Jr. (my big toy is in the van)...

Now it's time to come back to France....

Nice car at the shuttle entrance:

In fact I already own the cockpit  ;D so I'm going to convert it into The Empire Strikes Back  ;D. And yes in fact the cockpit is "more common"  ;D ;D ;D

Yes the cab is working fine, Big blue changed + other electronic rebuild + yoke rebuild... It's a US version imported by the seller when he moved from US to UK.

So WIP:
- Upgrade of the PCB  (how ? I don't know yet)
- New Marquee (I'm not sure because I think that I prefer this one)

Upgrade of PCB is easy enough. Do you really want ESB only or want to be able to switch ?

I'll sell you my SW/ESB kit.

I don't mind, the easiest to install  ;D ;D Do you really have one to sell ?

We often catch nice cabs in our fishing nets whenever we cross the channel  ;)

another cool catch! i lke the look of the upright cabinet a lot, it looks somewhat menacing - as if it had been built by the dark side! :twisted:


Title: Re: [TEASING] : Cockpit is too "common"
Post by: Belike on May 23, 2011, 09:06:49 AM
Looks really nice and it is in the 1st place on my wanted list, I told you to drop it in Budapest. ;D ;D ;D
Great catch, congrats! ;)

Post by: atarimania on May 23, 2011, 11:15:51 AM
Yes it's true that the look of the cabinet is more "dark-side" than the cockpit, it's normal for "The Empire Strikes Back"  ;D


Title: Re: [TEASING] : Cockpit is too "common"
Post by: DarthNuno on May 23, 2011, 07:29:15 PM
OMG  :o You're cabinet looks BRAND new!  :o Congratulation  :P :P :P Can't wait to play 'Strike Back' on this, hell yeah  :P :)

The force is strong in your family! All the 'squad' with you on this adventure, well done  8)

A special one for a Lego SW fan of course  ;D  :arrow:
