Artwork / Zaccaria Scramble artwork needed for restoration
« on: August 06, 2019, 04:26:30 PM »
I have this cabinet for restoration, I've seen the control panel, bezel and I think side art have all been vectored already which will save me a big job!

Could you help me out with the vector files? I finished vectoring the Zaccaria Phoenix control panel recently so can help out adding that to the artwork files vault :)

These are the pieces used on the cab. I have the ability to cut and directly print to the reverse of plexi now so if anyone needed a new cp piece and bezel it's easy for me to do more prints at the same time.

« on: February 06, 2017, 12:12:00 PM »

I've been trying to do these for a LONG time. The foil printing wasn't the problem, as much as the cost of getting them done which was always crazy money and would never have been worthwhile.

But now I've finally got the right print quality, on a lovely silver foil at a price around the same as these cost new when they were still available. All my artwork files have been reworked from my previous versions and I've spent a lot of time with my local printer to try and match the originals as closely as we could.

These are direct printed on to a high quality non-bubble adhesive silver foil, using 2 layers of ink on the very highest possible quality print settings. It gives them a feel much like the screen printed originals. We also boost some colour settings on the printer to make the yellow, red and green as vibrant as possible. They are then die-cut to match the shape of the original pieces.

A big thank you goes to Craig @ Giz10p who was kind enough to lend me his very last NOS set so that I could see exactly how they were printed, where the foil was visible or translucent, and get a good colour match and cut.

In order to get the prices sensible I've had to order a high volume of these, so I'll do 1 run, then once they are all sold that will be it.

There's lots of pictures below to show them in detail. I'm particularly pleased with the base lid decal, it looks absolutely beautiful when the light hits it.


Decals will be sent individually wrapped and rolled in card mailing tubes, via recorded delivery/tracked and insured airmail. £4 UK, £11 Europe, £14 USA


Dash decal, £18
Monitor bezel decal £16
Side panel line stripes (left and right, 2pcs.) £15
Base lid £18
Base sides (left and right, 2pcs.) £40

Artwork / Arcade Art Shop - Repro arcade artwork store
« on: November 22, 2016, 10:16:38 AM »

For those of you that don't know I've been doing repro artwork across the UK forums for a few years now, and at the start of the year I set up a proper online store. Since then I've been spending more and more of my time working on arcade artwork and have built up a nice inventory of exclusive stuff that's not been done anywhere else, and I'm working on new pieces every week now. I've been helped out a lot by people generously sharing their original art with me so it can be scanned and preserved so a big thank you to everyone who helped out.

Some of my more recent additions to the store are:

Lordsvale Neo Geo MVS Side art and CPO's.
F355 Challenge full set of artwork
Crazy Taxi "Let's Get Awesome" decals
Capcom Cute side art
OutRun mini/cabaret full artwork, and oval and stripe stickers from the upright
Daytona USA 2 artwork - almost everything
A small selection of NOS parts for Sega cockpits.
Initial-D 1, 2 & 3 artwork
Salamander full set of Electrocoin artwork.

Arcade Lifestyle / Announcing Nintendo Sky Skipper Project.

Nintendo Sky skipper project

Today I am proud to announce that the sky skipper project is alive and on target to be revealed for the first time to the general public in 2017.
Updates and photos of our project & this never before seen game by Nintendo can now be found at the website below.

Stayed tuned for up coming details.


This is happening guys! For those who don't know about this game it's an almost-lost Nintendo arcade game, made shortly after Donkey Kong....we knew a small number of cabinets were made, but there's almost no information about the game anywhere.

We are attempting to recreate the dedicated cabinet that's never been seen other than in the flyer and a handful of photos. The website will document our journey bringing this game back to life, and it's gonna be a hell of a story  ;D

I've just bought a nice rare Nintendo Helifire cocktail for restoration, it's almost complete but the glass got smashed at some point and the 4 clips to hold it on were lost, so I need to find 4.

After one of these boards, working or not. Thanks.

Finding these parts won't be easy I'm sure, but someone may have them in a box somewhere so figured I'd ask around!

I'm missing both tail light cover plastics.

Missing the right side metal cover that goes here on the base.

And also need a pair of speakers for the front of the seat as the ones in there are modern Sony's and don't fit properly.

This cab is next on my wanted list. In fact it's the last one I'm actively wanting and I've never actually tried a wanted post so figured it might be worth a try.

I did find a nice one in France and a deal was agreed and so was shipping but it went sour so walked away. It's not a particularly rare version, I just think the DLX is more popular so is the version that gets seen often.

They seem to sell for anything from £500-£800. I'd pay more for an extremely nice one of course. I can offer cash, or trades with certain cabs from my collection.

Not exactly a cab that pops up in Europe, seem to be plenty Stateside though. Thought I'd put a post up just in case anyone has one they might be tempted to part with for cash or trades in as you never know until you ask  :)

There seem to be 2 variations, the larger upright cab similar to Gyruss, and the woodgrain cab that had Time Pilot, Phoenix etc. in.

I'd take a project, a empty shell or a mint condition one, or may consider a game like Phoenix in the same cab shape as I have seen a few of them in Europe.

Arcade Lifestyle / Dedicated Bubble Bobble cab project
« on: September 30, 2013, 01:26:26 PM »
Bubble Bobble is and always has been my favourite game. It was the first pcb I bought when I got in to this hobby, and after a fair bit of reading up I was amazed to find it never had a dedicated cab!

I thought then I'd like to make one, but I didn't have any knowledge and would have been completely out of my depth back then taking on a project like this. A couple of years ago I thought I'd go for it....and after 2 failed attempts with different cabinets earlier this year I finally got the right cab for the job. A Taito/Taitel T-83.

I started with this:

And mocked up some graphics like this:

But never finished it, and subsequently sold the cab.

I did a load more work on the graphics and settled on a more solid design before getting this:

Which turned out to be too tidy and nice to mess about with.

Then last month I decided this would be the perfect cab:

Mamed with a 20" vga in there, no psu or loom etc. so a perfect candidate.

I set about stripping it down and giving it the complete works....

And so begins my hunt for the internals for my Star Wars cockpit.

I realise it will be a long and difficult road, but I know the bits I need are all out there somewhere, waiting for a new home. Help me arcade-fans, you're my only hope.

I started out with nothing. I now have:

1x Clean and solid cockpit with a 25" Hantarex Polo & a mame pc.
1x Fully working PCB Set.
1x Yoke Controller in nice condition.

I need:

Everything else.
Namely a colour vector monitor. I will take anything, working or not, 19" or 25", amp or wg, as I know this is mission impossible.
A loom
HV Board
A nice big manual
More stuff I'm probably not yet aware of.

I have cash & stuff for trade.

Here she is, being given love and attention, but missing her soul.

Arcade Lifestyle / Euro Dig Dug Restoration
« on: August 05, 2013, 12:43:27 PM »
I've seen quite a few of you guys have one of these cabs, here's the restoration I recently finished on mine.

Here are some pics I took when it first arrived. The monitor had vertical collapse but it appeared to be running the game ok, however it was impossible to tell if there were any pcb issues.

Cab is good and solid, few little touch ups needed here and there. Inside is full o' crap and it needs a thorough clean. Obviously the control panel needs some work and a new overlay. All the metalwork is rusty and will need stripping back & repainting.

The sound works but is distorted so that will need looking at, and none of the coin lights or start button lights are working. Lots to do, but should come out very nice.

Artwork / Does anyone have a vector of a Dig Dug Euro CPO?
« on: May 29, 2013, 12:47:50 PM »
I've managed to get a scan of the correct CPO for a Euro Dig Dug, but before I look at getting it vectored wanted to check in case it has already been done.

I'm sure I have seen it mentioned in some discussions that there is a vector file available, but not sure if it was ever finished.

Arcade Lifestyle / My Nintendo Donkey Kong
« on: May 07, 2013, 01:07:49 PM »
Thought I'd share some pictures of my Donkey Kong cabinet I recently finished working on.
I've wanted one of these for a very long time, one of the most beautiful cabinet designs & artwork ever made I think  :)
I was extremely lucky to manage to buy a cabinet that had been superbly restored on the outside, but none of the internal work had been done. It had been fitted with the wrong monitor, a jamma loom & psu.

When it arrived there wasn't anything inside, but the previous owner had managed to source a Sanyo monitor, loom, pcb & power supply.

I took it to my friends at the Arcade Barn and tried to hook it all up. I couldn't believe it when everything worked! The psu had settings for 240v as well so it was very easy to get going.

Switched around the yoke plugs and the picture was the right way up, hooked up some controls and had a few games.

When I was home I started putting it in the cab.

Added the loom, applied missing decals and rebuilt control panel.

Moved in to my office and added the last pieces.

And here it is all finished and back to original.

It sits next to my Egret II candy cab, 2 different ages of the arcade.

I need a replacement lopt for my Donkey Kong monitor if anyone has one to spare  :)
