  • Nintendo Donkey Kong Cabinet Scratch Build



    I have a couple of Donkey Kong cabinets to build and thought I'd document the process.

    This is the artwork package I've put together, still a work in progress.

    Donkey Kong UP Artwork

    I already had a template from previous builds so I used that to make the side panels, the paint is water based enamel from Bunnings.



    I got the first coat on today, there will be 3-4 coats applied with each panel sanded between coats.





    The paint is applied with a spray gun and the paint is thinned with a 1:1 ratio of paint to water.

    All the other panels have been CNC cut to save time and effort, the plans were based on the ones on classicarcadecabinets.com





    I've done a run of 10 of the marquee brackets that have been reproduced by a local sheetmetal company.




    I'm also currently waiting for a quote to come back to reproduce the original Nintendo Coin door.

    I'd love to come and have a look at this process one day. I don't have the skills to do it myself, but it's fascinating.

        I think Jimmy has enough cabs for AKO IV.
        This build is for someone else so it's up to them if they want to offer it for use.
        I'm building a second one for myself though but not sure if they'll be finished before the end of July.

        I got the second coat on today, two more to go.

          I had a local sheetmetal company fabricate ten sets of the two brackets that hold the marquee.
          I picked them up today and did a test fit and they fit perfectly.
          I could get them powder coated but it's easier to just paint them in satin black enamel.
