HI guys,

I'm here with a new project:

PAC MAN - Scratch Built Replica

After Galaga cab: http://www.dragonslairfans.com/smfor/index.php?topic=402.0

 it's time for another Namco's classic arcade.

My idea was to build a Nintendo Donkey Kong cab from scratch.... but to much problems with pieces (coin door, bezel, etc....) these are the three cab that I would, so

....it's PAC TIME  pacman Ghost

already found pieces:




original 1980 control panel e coin door (need restorations) Space Ace Space Ace:



so... i'm almost ready, I need arts from Twobits and Marquee (already in custums here in Italy) and a little help from you guys and .... Bruno  oppps oppps  Kiss Kiss Tongue

can you confirm me these measures?















Bruno I know that you're busy with your gameroom  oppps oppps, but no problem, when you have time.... thanks in advance  Kiss Kiss Kiss

9. 7 mm

Sorry Bruno, I've a doubt .....  Huh?

the measure N.5 (1712 mm) is from the floor or from the base of the cab?



Thank you  Kiss Kiss

I've just do it again  Cool ... I would say 1712mm from the base of the cab, not from the floor, but once again, I cannot say it's an accurate value because the top is curved and my sizing tool is not easy to manipulate alone for such big measure  oppps
Hope it can help  Undecided

Cool,
The CP placement was actually the toughest part of when I built my Pacman. Best of luck with yours!

Yes Amadama you're right (CP zone is difficult  roll eyes I will do my best) and thanks for support  Kiss Kiss

One question: where you bought the sideart and kickplate arts? From Twobit?

Thanks.
