another newbie
« on: March 07, 2014, 07:53:12 PM »
Hi there, I just joined up after spending most of last week reading through the restoration blogs on this site. You'll see me on a couple of other well known arcade collectors sites too no doubt.
Anyway im Ian, I don't have any cabs yet (i've got a good game & watch collection though) but I hope to remedy that situation soon.

I've been a massive fan of laserdisk games since they came out - my fave is probably astron belt, I only ever played a cockpit version of this but it was amazing - the music now gives me such a nostalgic feeling it almost brings a tear to my eye haha.

Well hopefully i'll contribute a bit more to the site, and keep a lookout for my first restoration project. In the meantime I still have a few more of your restorations to read through, at least im learning quite a lot :)

Thanks for the welcomes all.

I don't think finding a cab is going to be easy but i'll keep looking. Trouble is anything decent at a good price will get snapped up. I know anything's possible eventually though :)
Unfortunately I really want something like a popeye as well as 1 or 2 classics (doesn't everyone!) - do you think its worth putting up a wanted post on here or jamma+ for something like that?
Maybe at some point one of you guys will do another crate shipping from the US and perhaps I can join in with that (once I have proved my worth as a reliable "real" person of course hahaha).

OK I have more of your wonderful restorations to read, thanks again.
