View Full Version : GTB Royal Guard repaint

30th August 2006, 09:13 AM

I have recently purchased Gottlieb Royal Guard project

The principal part of the project is that the lower cabinet was trashed
long ago however the trimming including the legs, door, side rails etc
were all saved.

I am looking to rebuild the cabinet (have been reading Wotto's site very carefully) and undertake the task of painting the cabinet. Fortunately Gottliebs used geometric shapes.

However, I need to ask a huge favour of a fellow Royal Guard owner to
measure and send me the dimensions of the patterns on both the cabinet
and head to enable me to redraw and paint the patterns.

Given that I am doing the lower cabinet and the paint on the wedge-head
part is also pretty much gone I am looking to do a full respray

I appreciate ANY help that can be provided.

Thanks in advance

I was looking at that pin too, but I have too many projects to take on another. Pin rescue did one of these, might pay to ask them? http://www.pinrescue.com/games/royal_guard.html

gottlieb wedge head at that price - too good to resist - even though i bought another project recently

I have also bought from this seller on a number of occassions previously and he is top notch so had no hesitation.

I have found a couple of people with these so hopefully can get the dimensions right

first thing is to build the cab - off to the wood merchants for me!
