That's better my friend, in fact more than a few  Grin Grin Grin Grin

This is a US book I guess....so how does this get into the book:



That is a Bertolini Namco Galaxian cab....I think so because of the T-molding. The Japanese had green...this one has black on the left (which is original for the Bertolini version) and white (Nintendo ?) on the right.....

Gotta say that that guy looks more like a UK guy to me than a US guy, but who knows....

[EDIT] It IS a Bertolini, the coin door is bare aluminum.

Well spotted, Sherlock Smiley
While the foreword is by Steven Spielberg, the book itself is by Martin Amis who is… an english gentleman.
Check the pic below, the book was published in UK but printed… in the Netherlands  Tongue

My Bertolini Galaxian's t-molding is originally green. Tongue

Ah !

There's no flyer of the Bertolini Galaxian so I based that on the machines I've seen so far.

Anyway, I suppose this means you need green 15 mm. T-molding too ??  Grin Grin

We need a round up of Namco Galaxian owners, wether Japanese or European for a group buy of this stuff !!!

Mmmm.....

You know the guy on the left has some trademarks "Madness" (who were named The Invaders earlier on by the way Wink ) stream. The hair and the coat.

The guy on the right seems more to be Spandau Ballet styled....

Anyway, both are not typical for the US but for sure for the UK Smiley

I looked closer and what appears to be white t-molding between the ska guy and the new romantic guy is actually bare wood because t-molding is completely missing.
Also further in the book, another picture shows evidence that the same arcade also had the midway version.
