Nice story Ully, and a great catch. You're a lucky man.

One day, you will find your place to display al your games, and boy, what a sight that will be. It will be like a German Lair, or something.  :)

Just measure between the two side panels, it would be a dissapointment if the calculation is off based on the crappy pic, and ending up with a marquee that does not fit !  ;D

someone from KLOV measured his helifire marquee for me (which uses the same cabinet), dimensions are as follows: 56,8 x 14,8 cm. does that fit the measures of the crappy marquee picture?

Maybe muerto's idea is not so bad, i mean it is doable, but not as accurate as i would like it to be..
Will you contact the klov-ers, or should i start pm-ing ?  :P

i've already contacted those in question, got two (out of four) replies so far: one person has the cocktail table (but didn't list it as such on klov), the other one has the sega / gremlin cabinet. so far, no luck! :(
all i need is ... PONG - and a select few others: TOUCH ME, DRAGON'S LAIR, JOUST, ROBOTRON, MR DO, SAN FRANCISCO RUSH THE ROCK!!!

Not exactly, its 14,2 in height after stretching it to the width you provided..

So you see its always a good thing to measure physically  :P

that part can ofcourse be covered by the marquee retainers..

Anyway, i see i am up to some serious resolution boosting to do the job ..

hmmm, i've just measured the generic TV marquee that came with my game and the height is 15,5 cm (width 56,0 cm, but i've already said it's too narrow).  strange!

Holy craps, a Space Firebird!!! And a really beautiful Donkey! Both in the same roadtrip, I guess you could feel your heart beating as you were approching the seller's house!

Ully,

Look on Yahoo Japan auctions, I wouldn't be surprised if an original marquee turns up

Ully,

Look on Yahoo Japan auctions, I wouldn't be surprised if an original marquee turns up

If you plan on doing so, a friend of mine has conducted a guide on how to shop on yahoo.jp. It is about Japanese Home Computers, but he tells a lot about proxy bidders and how it has to be shipped, etc. The procedure is the same for arcade stuff :) It's in german an can be found here: http://www.nexgam.de/import-guides/Games-von-Yahoo-Japan-ordern.html
Maybe this is helpful. It's from our friend Uroko Sakanabito, you might know him from the german arcade boards.
`Contrariwise,' continued Tweedledee, `if it was so, it might be; and if it were so, it would be; but as it isn't, it ain't. That's logic.'

so cool, thx a lot for the info, i'll definitely have to check this out and enter a permanent search for space firebird (in case that is possible). hopefully, i'll be able to snatch original parts one day ...
