So guys it's time to open a new topic for my new project .....

TRACK AND FIELD UPRIGHT CAB from scratch Space Ace Space Ace

I love the game and the cab  Kiss (I remember the challenges with my childhood friends, and the broken fingers  confused Tongue), of course here in Italy I have never

seen the original cab.... it's time to build it with my hands and fingers  lol

After only 3 weeks of research (this time I'm lucky  Grin) I found what I needed:

First package from ebay.com received yesterday:



(original CENTURI coin door from a Track and field cab ... note the blue color close to the screws):





Great condition .... a painted and it will be like new.

I have enjoyed reading your posts on your replica builds.

I have done a few replica builds like you before and track and field was one I started to do some some prelim work on a couple of years ago.

Like you I collected all the parts and managed to get some dimensions with some help on the BYOAC website. See my post http://forum.arcadecontrols.com/index.php?topic=66709.0. Some of the dimensions I got there might help you out.

I used the dimensions gained form BYOAC and by using the side art to work out the curves managed to make a MDF template for the sides. That is as far as I got with the project as I seem to have spent the last 2 years flying from New York to London every week as part of my work. I have been thinking of finally finishing my project at the end of the summer so I look forward to watching how you get on.

Interesting project, this game is a sure party winner. Are you going to have other games in it? like:
 Hyper sports, 88 games, Gold Medalist, Field Day, Recordbreaker (4 buttons?).
Thanks for posting pictures of all your projects...

Oppsssss ...... no problem Bruno, when you can, can you  give me the front cab measures  N.1-2-3-4-5bis, no problem for the rear measures, thanks!!!!

Do you remember where is located the on/off switch? Inside the cab, rear the cab or on top?
