your work is very impressive  Smiley I strongly suggest you to create a company for selling 'scratch built replica' classics. I'm SURE it will have a certain success here, in Europe... because this era is the one of the REVIVAL, and most of the 'classics' cabinets are now extremely hard to catch, even for the collectors like us, so imagine a simple fan of arcade game  Roll Eyes Mission impossible for him  Tongue

Yes Bruno it's a great idea, but impossible to do  Undecided Embarrassed.... where to find original pieces? (coin door, control panel, bezel etc...) and especially CRT monitors  roll eyes

another thing... the final price to the potential customer  shock shock

amazing job, scr33n, really amazing. how do you create those curves on the bezel?

Thanks Ully, very simple if you use MDF wood, believe me

Yeah ! , thats what i mean when i say "replica bezel" , AWSOME job !!!!   Space Ace

Thanks Etienne!!!

The right color (Blue RAL 5010) taken from these 2 old track & field control panel latch (blue is darker, damn digital camera  Evil):



first coat of blue and white:



second coat ... the white is perfect  Kiss Kiss Blue is a bit better  but in my opinion needs at least three coats of paint  Evil





ok, tomorrow the third hand of blue  Tongue

hmm strange the blue doesn't cover better, maybe even a 4 stroke is necessary  Roll Eyes
Are you painting the other parts at the same time, the speakers grill and the other parts?

somehow the blue doesn't seem to cover completely ...

by the way: how did you choose the blue colour? did you have it colour-matched to the artwork?
