Man that made me laugh and I sure needed one !! thanks !


Let me dig up my pics....indeed it was the back door of my Joust....Ruud, the guy who build my gameroom and helps transport cabs every now and then is sometimes a bit impatient and he was while we were unloading....I couldn't support the cab just yet when he already let go....the backdoor dropped out and not only did it fall like a guillotine, it also actually has a goddamn metal plate like a guillotine on thee under side (to "hook it in" easily....).

That's why I always wear safety shoes from that moment on.....Etienne where's that picture with me with helmet, vest and safety gloves ? Smiley

My turn...the 'battlezone incident' !  Grin  arrow





Back in 2007, after working on my Battlezone, I put the back door back... but I didn't put icorrectly ... and the back door falls like ...a guillotine ... on my big toe! Of course, I was working bare-foot... Dangerous hobby we have here, guys!  Grin

Dont remember me....still cant believe that, after I broke my fibula, I broke a toe too.....

Assault
Virtua Figther (had the car full of Midway-cabinets for a fellow-collector over on UKVAC, so I couldīnt fit more.

This is slowely going to an end...all the dedicated 70's and 80's cabinets arw picked except 2 DX-cabinets which I have paid and will pull in the next days.
In the coming weeks I will take the one or other 90's machine and that was it then.

The 1 year of clearence time was quite a good estimation and it makes me a bit melancholic that soon my last visits are coming.
But until that day I will for sure have some more pickup pictures for you guys.

I made a break since I had a lot of work that did pay....but now I finish the storage of the big vendor.
Almost everything is gone....only some reserved machines for me are left...I think I make one or two further runs, than thats was it.

Yesterday I finally found the time mood the free the burried Tailgunner II cockpit. It was under tons of parts and cocktail machines, but I think it survived quite well.















and the european Konami Simpsons.
First I thought I take it just because its there...but meanwhile I look forward to the restoration, I think it is a fun game:







Next to it an Asteroids-Clone with small vector-monitor...13" probably. I took it for my pal Nilfisk who really became a friend of the year I share the hobby with him.

Next will be the SEGA Hang-On bike....and do not look forward to that task....
Since I Alpha 1 showed me an article that stated the european Hang-On machines where produced at the Atari-plant in Tipperary/Ireland and since I have no reason to asume that this unit is an exception I hope it also divides in 3 parts with the bike remaining on the middle section with casters.
Otherwise that transport wont be a lot of fun... oppps
