Ive been out of the pinball hobby for about 10 years now, having sold all my machines and drifted off.
But I have meet some damn good people over the years, one of them being Yee Fong. Yee and I stayed in touch and I still did the Pincade shirt designs for him and caught up for a beer and a cheeky game.
Sadly it took loosing my good mate Yee to get me think about owning a pinball machine again.
Over the years Yee and I discussed the NBA to MM conversions and at one stage both where going to do it, buying NBA's. Yee brought 2 MM playfields to do it.
I thought it would be a great project to finish what we talked about. So I brought one of Yees MM playfields and an NBA and started buying parts.
Problem being I actually have grown to like NBA
and so do the kids. ....
So Ive decided to build an entire MM from parts NEW/NOS and a couple of used bits. With the rerun machines its seams all the parts that put us off are now available Wire forms, metal guides etc. There have also been a couple of people document MM builds with amazing detail and have kindly offered help and guidance.
So to eat an elephant with the tail, T-Nuts

Ive drawn up the cabinet for Malcolm to CNC for me a new one
