DONKEY KONG RED CAB - Scratch Built Replica
« on: May 14, 2009, 06:38:11 PM »
YESSSS!!!! Finally I've found a Nintendo Coin Door (After 2 years of research and e-bay auctions lost  :?).

All the items necessary for the project, original control panel, coin door, bezel retainer, speaker, sidearts etc...  (except on the bezel, which I still have to order) are flying over the ocean  :lol:

so... now it's DONKEY KONG TIME and as for the Pacman cab, I need some measures (jakobud plans are not very accurate  :?)..... Who can help me?

Bruno  :-* :-* Level 42 (with his Mario bros cab  :-* :-*) , 5oomiles (with his red Donkey kong cab  :-* :-*) please I need your help.

I start with a few measures:























it's all for now ...   :ghost:

Thanks for now!!!

No problem Bruno, when you can .... before I get all the items, you'll be back  :wink:

What do you need I can provide the info........
   
if you can, your help is welcome  :-* thanks!!!

......can you build 2 ? I'd like an extra Nintendo cab  ;D
If we were neighbors I could do it, I'm not joking  :spaceace:

but the problem is to find the pieces (the coin door is the most difficult to find) ....

AAhhhhhhh , my favorite game, im going to folow this threat very good , since i am planning to build one myself someday.
so the measurement rectifications will be very handy, i did not know that the jakobud plans where not correct.

You get very short replies and he will declare full value on customs form _and_ include an invoice on the outside, resulting in me having to pay 30 euro's to the mail man......

I did e-mail about it and it seemed he was willing to send it without invoice and full declaration so check this before ordering.

He's very reliable otherwise. What do you want to order, there may be (cheaper) alternatives.

Thanks for the info Level42  :-* :-*

   
I have to order the DK bezel, Mikesarcade.com (Kim, great guy and fast shipping) currently is out of stock (4 weeks of waiting), so I thought Arcadeshop.com, do you know alternatives?  ???

Or maybe it's better that I wait Mikesarcade.com? I have ordered other times with no problems  :-* :-*

Kim is Mike's girlfriend or wife I suppose and seems to handle all the orders :D

Yeah I ordered with Mike too, excellent. Much better in communications than AS IMHO.
But AS is generally cheaper.

I thought Twistedquarter (an e-bay seller with a good reputation) was also selling DK bezels but obviously not (now):
http://stores.shop.ebay.com/TWISTEDQUARTER_Cooling-Fans_W0QQ_fsubZ5340399QQ_sidZ33020490?_nkw=donkey&submit=Search

Wouldn't know of any other sources really.

Ok, yesterday I received the first package from US ....



two original Donkey Kong marquees:



one with copyright note (great condition) and one without the copyright (not great condition, some scratches) ....

someone knows the difference? (The seller has written: Very rare old stock no copyright date on face  ???)
