@illawarra_steelers has heaps of pics, we need to get them uploaded to the gallery.

@Arcade King is it just uploading, or scanning too? We have been working on scanning in all my wife's old family photos, slides and negatives. Whoo boy is it a big task. I spent about 3 days just to get 500 slides done... and that is just scans, not clean up!

I believe he has them on file. We had them hosted years ago when the forum had a 3rd party gallery called photopost installed

I just found a old backup......hmmm

Some example pics. I believe this was @Burra749





I'm going to keep digging and put them in the gallery.

Not 100% related but I'm going through the old AA Photopost folders from a back up

First 450 pics are up.

If you have any info on the pics please leave a comment 🙂

More to come.

      Update 18/11/21 - Sold
      Update 15/11/21 - posted elsewhere and sold pending final payment.

      Hi everyone, I thought I would post here to give the community a chance before Facebook and Gumtree.
      I’m on the list for JJP Guns N Roses Limited Edition and have paid my deposit of $1500 with Pinball Sales (Paul) in Melbourne. Contacting him a week ago he has confirmed that delivery is on track before Christmas this year.
      While waiting I had the opportunity to take the place of someone else’s order (that person had purchased one 2nd hand while waiting) so  I jumped on and received my machine last week.  Not wanting to cancel the order, I thought someone else might like to buy my place in the queue at cost price.
      To be clear, $1500 to me now, the residual ($15350) to Paul at Pinball Sales closer to delivery. 

      Thanks, I will leave this ad up for a couple of days before posting on other sites.

      Hi all,
      I’m after either a Hobbit pinball machine (any trim level considered) or a Stranger Things machine (again, will consider a Pro, Prem, or LE). Located in Melbourne so Victorian sellers preferred but can work will Bill for transport if interstate. Looking at paying a reasonable price for machine (dependant on trim level) so not interested in any offers trying to sell thousands over what they should be valued at (apologies for jaded comment, just had some crazy offers recently).
      Genuine  buyer with cash ready.

      PRICE DROP! to $11,800 (My new machine's on the way and I'm keen to speed up this sale!) Dropping the price by $1k
      Selling my "Guardians of the Galaxy" PREMIUM to make way for a new machine. 
      This machine has been home use only, I am the only owner.
      It was purchased directly from AMD who also installed mirror blades and shaker motor. 
      Playfield and cabinet are in excellent condition. Some wear on the shooter lane (see photos)
      There are no faults or issues. Well looked after machine.
