    Snow Queen to Stranger Thing

    My 15 year old daughter had a school project to create something, so she did this!

    Picked up the Snow Queen in non-working condition with a sad cabinet, and got her to do all the hard work. She did all the art work (borrowed from parts of the internet) and had invaluable assistance from Matt H to vectorise and print the the stencils and art work. Thanks also to Dave and Vito and Kim for helping us get it running.

    Ha no worries @wiredoug. We had a large vinyl overlay made by Matt H so when she's sick of it, you can just peel it off and its Snow Queen all over again! We'll be keeping his for quite a while though, fun game. I'll post more process info for you @robm.

    So for those interested, did a complete cab sand down (with lead-protection measures due to old lead based paint).



    Wood filler for scratches and tons of sanding to get it smooth as we could.




    Primer coat then a few layers of mat black acrylic via a spray gun



    Then Emily jumped into Adobe and grabbed some pics off the internet to put together as a back glass and on the plastics. Matt H reverse printed these on adhesive vinyl and had a local CNC to plastics after scanning them. Emily designed the playfield overlay after Matt gave her a template to put on the things she wanted.



    Cabinet stencils were made by Matt and stuck in. Spraying is tricky of course when you have multiple colours. Did one side in separate color sprays, got better and did the whole side in one go.

    Stuck the playfield stencil on and chromed the door, coin acceptor and lock down bar and boom! Nice new modern em!



    Still going to give it a clear varnish coat to protect the paint job prior to it going out in public. It might just make an appearance at the Brisbane Masters (still have to tweek the score reel switches to get it perfect).
