    I've started the journey. I'm sure this will take a long time. I'm using an old TV cabinet to create a cocktail cab out of. Core Duo PC starting out with Linux but may go to XP / Win7 if it gets too hard. Just playing at the moment. Have started to cut down the unit and built a prototype controller in a shoe box! My 10 year old son is helping! I'll update here as I progress.

      Just showing my first Cab build from Arcade Worx also internals and all other parts from Ozstick.
      2 week build and paint time (awsome kit)

      Painted after construction and carbon wrapped the control panel, still looking for artwork to finish off the marquee.

      Sorry for multiple images cant work out how to remove or correct rotation.

        Mame running hyperspin. Usually I'm a 1 joystick 3 button person but got asked to do this for a friend. 2 joysticks 6 buttons each. Old LAI cab which had seen some wear.
        I know it's LCD but meh.
        Just to do t moulding and complete a bezel around monitor.

          Thought I'd posted my project here, but I guess better late than never! This is Meet George Jetson (",)

          Original drawing was done about 12 years ago as I lay in my bunk in a backpackers. A few years ago I revisited the design. The cab is virtually unchanged from that sketch, which is a bit of a fluke!

              Hehe. Yeah, I like a bit to hold myself

              I forgot to mention that the glass is also the control panel and that there are touch switches for P1 and P2, and Coin 1 and Coin 2, in between the normal buttons. Seemed like a great idea at the time, but of course inevitably you end up hitting a shift key on the Ipac while in the heat of a game! Will have to map P1 joystick shift controls to unused keyboard letters or something. I was going to have the touch controls elsewhere but I had a lot of trouble I assume with static off the CRT so in between the switches was far enough away from the tube not to have static issues...

                I'm getting towards the end of my first cab build. Will post some more pics when its 100%

                I started this in January and mostly worked on it in the evenings or weekends although had a bit of downtime due to heatwaves.

                I have graphics, marquee and t-molding ready to apply but may do that over the weekend.

                I bought two sets of joystick / buttons off eBay. First was the Easyget encoder + 2 joysticks and LED buttons and the other were Happ buttons with 2 joysticks. I also bought Zippy light touch micro-switches as I didn't like the heavy click switches that came with both sets of buttons. The Easyget buttons seemed to be pretty poor quality, I installed these first but within a day or two some of the LEDs started to fail and some of the buttons are a bit squeaky when pressed. So I've taken them out and put the Happ buttons in for player 1. The easyget joysticks also had a strange octagon restrictor plate on the bottom which I found hard to roll the stick around with as it'd stick in the angle corners, so I switched to the restrictor plate I got with the Happ joystick which has a rounded square, feels much nicer.

                I think I might make a single player only control panel as I like standing in the center of the machine rather than offset and I'm probably going to be the only one playing it 99% of the time.

                  Just got the art and t-moulding on tonight.

                  Still need to finish off the 1 player only control panel, but its mostly finished.

                    Bubble Bobble bartop

                    Finally finished my bubble bobble bartop after nearly 12 months. Need to thank [MENTION=5028]MamePatrol[/MENTION] for printing the artwork he did an awesome job and [MENTION=4126]wwf[/MENTION] for the kit. I just need spearker grills and then I am done.

                    I modified an artwork I found online to suit but really is just a copy.
