Still going with Pete's Battlezone. Lots of details finishing up, but progress has been good today. Here's where we're at.


Proper update on the blog soon.

Update from me.

 

The Lupin III PCB is in the USA with Andys Arcade waiting on being repaired.

The original linear power supply had melted. So I'm waiting for a converted Taito cab to turn up (bit like that Space Chaser that bonehead has posted actually!!) so I can replace and rebuild the entire power supply.

OK, here's a sneaky peek of the finished article. Managed to get things complete last night. Of course the boards don't work, but I'm learning that owning a Battlezone, you can't have everything. There's a couple of small nicks here and there that I need to touch up with the paint pen, and virtvic has a replacement plexi for me, but it's 99% there. The PCBs will have to wait for another day, but for now, here you go.

I'll write the final part up soon.

Seeing as you got some bronze tinted perspex, shall I sell the bit I got for you to Alex? (he needs a bit)

If that makes sense Vic I don't mind. The perspex I have came with the cab. Its pretty scratched up, but I guess it would be good to keep it original. No problemo.

Send me a link to what you ordered. If I'm feeling flush in the future, I might order some.
