Zaccaria Buck Rogers cockpit
« on: November 08, 2011, 09:06:52 AM »
Found on Ebay Italy:
http://www.ebay.it/itm/MOBILE-CABINATO-DA-BAR-OUT-RUN-1987-/330637545232?pt=Giochi_da_Bar_Flipper_Jamma&hash=item4cfb888f10

Unfortunately it has been converted into Out Run, fortunately by selling the Out Run stuff the missing pieces can be purchased.

Unbelievable  :D

Not sure  that that was a Buck Rodgers initially, we'de have to see the back side but that may be converted as well...

The one I found was a general cockpit cab and never meant for a specific game. SO, I think Outrun isn't a bad choice for this cab, although it doesnt match the artwork of course.....

Nice one, but to find the missing parts is a mission impossible. :-\

Looks to me if the steering wheel dash fits perfectly! Maybe it's original for driving games?

That could very well be the case. The one I found also had a hole for a shifter at the same place.

OK, let's keep pictures of that one before the ebay ad will be gone...

It's probably the generic cockpit used for Outrun. Doesn't look like a factory conversion, though Zac had some Sega licenses (e.g. Buck Rogers), more likely an operator conversion.

The lack of any Sega logo's on the steering/cp made me wonder if this might be a bootleg setup - I checked MAME and there was reference to the existence of an Outrun bootleg PCB...

What do you see that makes you think it was a converted Buck Rogers versus the Universal cockpit like this one?

They are so close to being identical, it's possible it was BR but the control panel and back glass look to fit more with the Universal.
