Hi Rich,

Unfortunately not the ST cocktail, it's a picture I found once on KLOV.
But that's my PCB all right and it works well :)

Cheers,

Franz

Thanks JonTron and Franz, it's been useful to me so I hope it helps others too

Great pics!, do they belong to you?. I have added the Space Thunderbird image to the lineup

Cheers! Rich

Hope its useful to some, I still need to add more known model number info for many of the machines so it's not finished yet

Cheers! Rich

Fear not. Tongue
It has become my reference Nintendo arcade numbering page.

I have an upright Space Firebird cabinet, which is an ongoing restoration project for me. Thread on here about it). It has been converted to play Donkey Kong during its life.

http://www.ukvac.com/forum/nintendo-space-firebird-upright-restoration_topic348779_page1.html

The model number is TST-UP-IL
The serial is 00343

I always assumed that the first T in the model number was a shorthand for NinTendo. Not sure if i read that, or imagined it :)

Quite possibly, good point there

I will try and update this page with more info about cabinets and also cocktails and where they have been found around the world, for example has anyone ever seen a UK upright Donkey Kong? (Non converted) or any upright Nintendo cabinet after Radar Scope outside of US and Japan?

GM = Germany, BG = Belgium, HL = Holland, UK = United Kingdom, IL = Ireland, US = United States,

These are all the country codes I can remember ever seeing (on the web, not in person :)). I am looking fo a TRS-UP-UK!

My two nintendo cabs com from Germany.

Zoo Flipper?  Zoo Fever? LOL

I'm not sure whether you are being sarcastic, but that's pretty good! - "Zoo Fever", considering Block Fever came just before it (a breakout type game also) so i'd say "Fever" is good and "Zoo" - well what other "Z" word is there? - maybe they intended to have other animals in there at some point!

Cheers, Rich

Thanks for putting all these codes up its good reverence.
It could be one of the early Namco games
We still don't know the codes for bomb b N and Monkey magic.
