let's start with the real paint job! for that, i've set up a temporary spraying booth in my bathroom! it'll be a mess eventually, but much easier to clean than someplace else!



after base-painting the necessary pieces in blue, it's time for a small stencil job





came out fine - i really like the color combo :-*



up next: the two large side pieces! :-\
all i need is ... PONG - and a select few others: TOUCH ME, DRAGON'S LAIR, JOUST, ROBOTRON, MR DO, SAN FRANCISCO RUSH THE ROCK!!!

the doorbell has just rung and i've been delivered a huuuge package :arrow:



some strange symbols on the label and the word JAPAN, let's examine that a little bit closer



hehe, i like the "i checked that contents above are not dangerous good" section! but i've got no time to waste, i wanna see what's inside

first up, a taito BUBBLE SYMPHONY cartridge on top of an F3 motherboard



the game is also known as Bubble Bobble II and - you might have guessed it - the sequel to Bubble Bobble :)



up next in the box is BUBBLE MEMORIES ...



... aka The Story of Bubble Bobble III - the sequel to Bubble Memories



and because the games were pretty cheap, i decided to get another one :arrow:



Elevator Action Returns is the sequel to the Taito classic Elevator Action and for those games I HAVE A CUNNING PLAN 8)



thx a lot to bela for pointing out that great dude in japan who's selling some really cool stuff. communication was extremely friendly, shipping fast and cheap and the best of all: NO CUSTOMS! i wonder why packages like that from the east are slipping through the network while every single package from the west goes through customs. man, i wished getting parts from the usa would be as easy as well!!!

all i need is ... PONG - and a select few others: TOUCH ME, DRAGON'S LAIR, JOUST, ROBOTRON, MR DO, SAN FRANCISCO RUSH THE ROCK!!!

my dream is to have it up and running side by side with its sequel rainbow islands by the end of the year.

Looks nice, the color matches perfect. ;)
Never played BB on an original pcb or cab, you made me curious. :D
Your theory about customs is 100% true, never paid a cent for "eastern" packages.
(For most of you I am the eastern). ;D

Have you seen this? IMO theres way to much going on, on that cab.
Though I made my BB out of a Moon Patrol cab (home made) TAITO _IS_ the way to go!

yeah, already spotted that, but let's post a picture here:



i agree with you michael, the artwork is too busy for me, my eyes can't relax when looking at that thing if you know what i mean. it does look great somehow, just not the way i would have done it.

kinda reminds me of this one :arrow:





also a great unique design, but once again too busy for my taste!

That guy was influenced by my cab but decided to go for full side art and front art, I also find it's a bit too much for my taste.
