US color codes are pointless over here.

Sorry, just trying to help.

Thanks for the links Alpha1, I need to ask a KLOV moderator if I can change my username to shrunkenmaster...

Luigi, I have the whole bezel plus other parts. I now have the cardboard graphics bezel too!

I know it's going to be a challenge getting the monitor/mirror/cardboard graphics to line up, but it'll be FUN! It won't be 'pixel perfect' but I will aim to get it as close as possible to the real thing.
Looking forward to the dimensions you have for me, it will be interesting to compare to Gozer's model.

My 'little cabs' are approx 5 feet tall by the way.

Do you make the mini ones?

I used these strips for a marquee, all good! Do you have links for the PSU and dimmer?

I'd just buy an original one. You'll need a vector monitor unless you plan to MAME.
Infact I have a vector monitor for it if you are interested - i'm based in the UK.

Thanks for the offer, but I am going with MAME for this. I've got a raster setup in my Star Wars cab and it looks great, though obviously not as good as a proper vector.
Plus building stuff myself is as much fun for me as playing the games.

Thanks Luigi, I agree a couple of mm is no big deal!

I am banned from making a start on the construction until our house is sold and we've moved.
My wife has spent ages making everything look nice and knows what carnage I bring when the power tools come out!

Thanks to everyone here for being so super-friendly, I look forward to hassling you all some more at a later date  ;D

Shipping is normally around £150 from Germany to the UK

For a whole machine?! Wow, now I must get on the German eBay! What company does shipping for this price?!

Thanks in advance Luigi, I have Sketchup and the model now. I take it Gozer's dimensions are pretty accurate?

Thanks too, Superully, but I have parts for this already! However if you want to drive it over to England for me then maybe :)

Hello all,
Not really posted here before, but I've been over at the BYOAC forum for a few years now.

I'm looking to scratch-build a Battlezone and could do with some measurement help. Can anyone here please provide any dimensions?
Also looking for the cardboard bezel if anyone has a spare!

Sorry to jump in here, but does anyone have the Track & Field CPO artwork - for buttons, not the trackball one? Pretty sure it's not on Joymonkey or anywhere else.

Wow, that's a shiny looking board! I have the original Gyruss board schematics if that's of help to anyone (My Gyruss has an intermittent left speaker fault - I have checked all the speaker connections and think it may be one of the two sound chips causing the problem).
