Title: my first roadtrip - Zaccaria Quasar

Hi Guys,

here is my first report of a roadtrip;-)

It's my first dedicated Zaccaria! He will live together with is three universal brothers, and with a Zacc Table soon;-)

I've bought it für 50€ nearly three weeks ago, but I need to discuss it with my wife;-)  Today was the day to collect it!

So I started after meal in Hamburg, it was not far away, nearly 150km to Bremen.

through the wonderful Hamburg Harbour
(http://www.proe-wildfire.de/Zac/Machines/Quasar/small/IMG_1251_800x598.jpg)

and the traffic jam
(http://www.proe-wildfire.de/Zac/Machines/Quasar/small/IMG_1252_800x598.jpg)

I go to the destination, paid the 50€, and put in my VW Touran;-)

It fits perfekt:

then, back to Hamburg:

and here it is:

I need a new CP

The Quasar works fine;-) no big burns in the Monitor;-)

but now I search for a CP and of course a Bezel.

Next year it will be on the Eurocade! (which I missed this year because I was in Norway for fishing)

Great catch. It seems that the Zacc cabs are getting more and more admiration, which is logical as thesy can be very beautiful. I love the Italian style of them. Great artwork.  ;D

Where in Norway did you go fishing? Do you come every year? :)


Title: Re: my first roadtrip - Zaccaria Quasar
Post by: Digimon on September 19, 2012, 11:37:45 PM
Every two years we go to norway - this time we were in Skjaerstad Gard, near Narvig.
The years before we've stayed in Arnoy brygge.

I started my outreach to this kind sir, late in the week.  I have the week off, if I don't start this week more than likely I'll have to flip it back over.

Will keep you posted.

Here it is ;)

By starting where Etienne had finished, I saved a lot of time. Almost everything was already done, so I just had to add the remaining elements ;)


The file is ready to be moved to the public folder of your favourite NAS ;)

Thanks man !

Yes, indeed Bela, and i am planning of using that as a basis to finish thatone also  ;)

by the way Aioros, did you find the font or did you just trace it ?

I found this one:

(http://i39.tinypic.com/124vl1s.png)

http://www.fontspace.com/ideal-fonts/feuerfeste

It didn't match but was quite approximate. As you can see, some letters are very different, the "o" and the "b" for example. So in order to match as much as possible, I converted the whole text into paths and edited it. Not the best choice but it is an easy way to solve it ;)


Title: Re: my first roadtrip - Zaccaria Quasar
Post by: Etienne MacGyver on January 16, 2014, 02:13:37 PM
Yeah, found that too, but the real match is Churchward Bold, but thats not a free font  :(

Post by: aioros on January 16, 2014, 09:15:22 PM
I see. I've also searched the Internet, but I haven't found it for free neither :(

By the way, maybe you can tell me which one is this (http://www.dragonslairfans.com/smfor/index.php?topic=2181.msg75170#msg75170) ;)
