I start to build the cabinet, but it seams the plans what i use are not all right Sad
So i need help now. It seams the size disclosures for the both plates from the top are not right, i need the dimensions from the top plate and the plate what is under the marquee and the scoreboard.
Maybe here is someone that not life far away from me and it is possible that i can take a look on his DL Cabinet ant take the dimensions.
If got the plans from jakobud and i am sure there is something wrong with the marquee detail.

Well, you're welcome to inspect my DL cabinets, but they all are the Atari Euro version, and I think the Jakobud 'inspiration' is coming from the US Cinematronic model. Not sure what are all the differences precisely, but I'm sure the control panel is different regarding its fixations and so maybe other parts/size? Anyway I'm located in South Belgium, but I hope they are at least few 'lucky' Dragon's Lair/Space Ace (same cabinets) owners in Germany that may?

Well, it's often seen applied lower than that but ...

"I used to work at Cinematronics during the build of Dragon's Lair, along with my buddies, freshly graduated from High School, summer of '83.
I can tell you that the side art was applied by an 18 year old kid, with no specific instructions on how to do it, other than "do it fast and move on to the next one".
So, there is no definite answer to your question. Simply place where you think it looks best."

yes i guess  Grin

One question i have left. Is the original Dragonīs Lair machine mono or stereo?
Daphne runs in stereo, on the left channel i hear the beep sounds and on the right the ldp sound, is that properly?

So, the finish is close Smiley
Only the Score Board Plexie and the coin-in slot is missing than i finish my work on my Dragonīs Lair.



When the Coin slot is set and the plexie to, i make a video with a lot of pictures from this odyssey.

Thank you all here, they help me.
Thankīs to my wife and child's, that they give me the time to build my dream Smiley


Next is a DL II, maybe this year or 2014 Smiley
