I mean - My feeling is that even when this amazing story took place, by that time stories even on a smaller scale were growing few and far between...

I just picked up, what I assume is, a Savanna marquee (glass).  Purchased and shipped from Germany.

Even for a short distance, quite the little adventure eh? With a ferry and then some rain.  Glad you didn't get any new swell spots....and....jealous :)

Nice pickup, always great to get another roadtrip story.

If you would ever consider letting that bezel go, as it goes with Fitter - I'm trying to piece one together here stateside.

Bumping back up.

Getting pretty close to printing the artwork.  Paul Swan's scans have been pieced together and cleaned up, and we've done some color matching.

Probably the final notice - if there is any interest in getting any of the pieces for this cabinet - shoot me a note.

I didn't see any comments on interest in repro. artwork for this game....but I thought I'd update anyway.

I'm moving forward with getting the artwork reproduced, and may have the print company do the prep.  Waiting to see how much that is going to cost.

If you think you are interested in a set, OR even individual piece(s) - please drop me a line here or directly. Obviously just asking about interest, which is always pending pricing, etc.

Digimon - I could also use some help with the dimensions of the viewport on the control panel overlay (where the instruction card shows through), if you think you could locate / get access to your machine for additional information like these measurements.

Thanks Digimon for taking the time to respond, and offer to help.

Hey folks.

Been a long time since I've posted here.

I was fortunate to find a Fitter up just outside of Hamilton, ON from a gentleman who used to live in the Netherlands and brought the cabinet with him to Canada when he emigrated.

The cabinet has the more generic stars Zaccaria bezel, and a Comidar overlay.  No original artwork outside of the sides of the cabinet (no marquee, bezel or overlay)

We're so fortunate that Paul Swan has contributed so much from his restorations - that the scans are at least available to work from.

So - Initial questions are three fold:

* Has anyone already reproduced artwork for this game?
* (If not) Is anyone willing to lend a hand if needed - color matching, or possibly temporarily lending unused pieces for color matching, matching dimensions?
* Longshot - If anyone has any artwork they'd be open to sell, drop me a PM

I don't think I'll find artwork, so will likely have it made.  I've worked with a local (to Indianapolis, IN - USA) shop previous to reproduce Universal Snap Jack overlays and instruction cards that were reverse, UV printed and laser cut.  I know I can reach out to them again.

I could make a couple of sets of artwork for folks that are interested.  NOTE - A long ways off.  Got the game yesterday, haven't even seriously looked Paul's scans yet to assess what is needed.

Looking forward to hearing thoughts / feedback.

I didn't realize Erik wasn't collecting at all anymore.  But, it has been over 10 years since I last exchanged emails with him...

« on: June 03, 2020, 04:11:38 PM »
Hey all,

I picked up a Zero Hour two weeks ago in decent shape - but the only thing it is missing is the boardset. Its my understanding these may be a bit hard to find.

If any of you have one that you'd be willing to part with please let me know.  Given the distance, a 'trade' may be hard - but I may have some things of interest to work out a trade as well.  From my own perspective, I know it can be hard to part with some things.

I did reach out to Marco already, as he is THE Universal guy - I'm checking on all possible avenues.

This is Universal cabinet #9 for me, this isn't a game I plan on selling anytime soon - FWIW.
