Huh ? Why did you have to pay the extra 23 if it wasn't customs ?

Said about Quarterarcade not doing the favor. There are plenty others who will do it all the time...

@joeks:
does that mean you got an original Donkey Kong or are you building a replica?

itīs been quite a while sience i had to pay toll, and i think itīs the same as yours. But in order to pay the toll fee here, i have to pay 150 DKK (21€ handeling fee) and toll on the postage!!!! - which is added to the bill.. Sad

i think i'll go for those white german nintendo donkey kong cabinets from now on. those pop up from time to time, i could have a nice dk row with dk, dk2, dk3 and dk jr. and each cab could be painted in its respective colour if you don't like to have all of them in white. don't know if those american control panels would fit on the german cabinets though ...
i'll steal scr33n's other thread for that question Grin

with the help of sidearts I got the right curves:



and the right angle of the control panel, glass and all wood panels  arrow





the final plan:  Kiss Kiss
