Hi everybody.

I'd like to make this an ongoing thread where you can show off the stuff you received for your cab(s). Sometimes you get parts you will use for restoration or repair later but you want to show them when you get them Wink

I'd like to start with two things I received recently.

1st: Thanks to André my Journey now has a DECENT replacement for the cassette player. A Magnavox D6600. It's so cool thatit's one from Magnavox, the first publisher of a home videogame console Odyssey...thanks, André!! Smiley  I will show pictures later, unfortunateley the ones I made with my cellphone are blurry  Undecided

2nd: A replacement controlpanel for the Missile Command. Those who played it might have noticed that the panel is bent. This is from welding the additional holes that were drilled into it. Some nice guy from KLOV decided to let go his repro panel. I will make more pics when it was installed in the cab. Totally love it, it's gorgeous  Kiss

Cool!

Back in the days, I got a Philips G7400 from my parents, together with a G7420 basic module / expansion pack. As I spent the first weeks typing and copying basic listings from magazines, my dad finally bought me a tape drive so I could save my efforts for later - and it was this very Magnavox model. Great to see it again - and in fact, I still own it to this day Smiley

Hah, who would have guessed that connection !

I still wonder how/why a Magnavox product ends up in Europe Smiley It's a very decent quality device....only metal stuff inside and made in Japan, despite the brand Wink

Is the humm fixed Luigi ?

Not yet. I'm trying to find a good tape to play it in the D6600. The original Journey-tape is worn, I won't expect good sound from a tape that was stuck inside a tape player with the PLAY-button pressed through the last 30 years Wink

Some days ago I received a populated Polaris control panel and a Stratovox metal plate courtesy of Superully. This completes my recent search for Stratovox parts. I got the cab from Sweden, CP from Germany, bezel from our friend Belike in Hungary and boards and marquee from the US of A. Now I only need to add some tender love and care from Norway and I will have a running Taito Stratovox.  Grin
