after a restoration process of almost two years, i am happy to announce the end of the jungle king project. there are some minor things to do like applying new alu stickers (in case they show up Tongue) or attaching the wiring harness inside at various spots (still waiting for the huge cable fixes that heavy harness needs), but apart from that the end has finally come. and as always, here are the money shots!!!

right side: before ...



... and after!



left side: before ...

the front: before ...

a look inside before ...



and a look inside after!





some more random shots to show the beauty of this game! Kiss







and in case you ever get bored of jungle king, why not try the board game jungle hunt - waiting for you right on top of the cabinet! Cool



as always, thx a lot to all of the guys on this forum for your support, your help, your comments and your input - i would not have been able to finish this without you!!!

Gorgeous results

Didn't came on that topic for a while. Took me about half an hour to achieve reading this incredible restauration.
You really deserve a such beautiful result, after so many time of hard work and disappointment.

Finally, you did it !!

Did you know there was another version of the game besides jungle hunt called Pirate Pete?

http://youtu.be/vUxPUwSrL1Y

The differences between this game and Jungle King are :
* An opening musical theme is used in certain parts of the game instead of the opening Tarzan yell.
* The player character is a heroic pirate instead of the Tarzan character (he swings on ropes between ship's masts instead of vines between trees, swims through a shark-infested ocean instead of a crocodile-infested river).
* The enemies on the fourth level are sword-wielding pirates instead of spear-chucking cannibals.

Would be pretty cool to own all 3 boards and swap them from time to time..

i did, because shawn "phetishboy" on the KLOV forum had been looking for artwork for this thing for ages - without success. he finally gave up and sold his board. no real artwork ever surfaced! it's a shame, because the pirate them is cool as hell Twisted

Hey superully.

Sorry to bump this out, but I plan to build from scratch a 7/10 scale Taito cab, and I'm missing some dimensions :

- The two control panel boards,
- The speakers board (the one above the screen)

Could you measure these for me please ?
