I was bored of my "Pub Time" dart board so I found some zombie like graphics off the internet and just made my own little fun theme. I called it "Zombie Time". I even changed the button decals.

I bought a few shadow boxes and decided to create something new I thought of one day. Printed a few bezels and a screenshot inside and they turned out pretty cool. I also made a video version using a digital picture frame and it place the sample video of that game. Take it one step farther and put a tablet in there and actually play the game with a Wii controller (blutooth).

I decided to restore my Turtles arcade. Before any of you ask I will tell you I cannot sell these graphics. No questions asked. Anyways here is the pic of the finished product. I added a kick panel graphic as well to add a little more to it and I put in a 26" LED monitor. The controllers are brand new old stock wico sticks and new classic arcade leaf switch buttons.

The youtube famous Hyperspin ArchAngel Arcade I built from scratch a few years ago. It wasnt finished yet in this pic, still needed a plexi bezel added and a few other little things. I miss it and wish I would have kept it. But as all things I have to move on and build something else. :)

-42" LCD
-4 player controlls with 3" trackball
-Slide out keyboard tray for some PC gaming
-Watercooled gaming PC in a custom CaseAppeal case with Plexi cover

So last year I seen a small preview of a new movie being made and Disney decided to make a Fix It Felix Jr cabinet to show at tradeshows. Using google images I redrew every graphic and printed a set for my Nintendo cab. After my cab was finished Disney decided to build a few more ( I was told now up to 50 of them built). Nobody had a copy of the game so a good buddy of mine completely remade the game from scratch and it was not only exact of Disneys but it had more features! This picture is me standing next to it at the Midwest Gaming Classic 2013. It was a huge hit and hundreds if not thousands of people played it over the weekend. Since then I have inspired 200+ people to build their own Fix It Felix Jr arcade and its been fun to watch them all come to life.

Fix it Felix Jr next to a few of my Nintendo cabs. My Nintendo collection as of this picture is up to 9 cabs now. I might have a hoarding problem. haha

Picked up a really rough grey Nintendo Vs cabinet. So as always I decided to change it up a bit with new more modern graphics and look. Since I have no VS wiring in it I decided to put a computer in it running hyperspin with all the VS games as well as the NES collection. Luckily the monitor inside is an original Sanyo 20ez so I can use that with a VGA to CGA adapter.

The cab was in pretty bad shape as you can see and I had to do a TON of wood work and sanding.

My boring TouchMaster stopped working on me so I decided to do something creative with it. I thought maybe I would draw up some R2D2 graphics and see how it looks, then put a 23" touchscreen Dell inside and have a new metal cover made for the top. The project still isnt finished sine my Dell touchscreen PC died on me but someday I will get back to it. Here is the progress of the build.

This is what it did look like before the transfermation.

I started the Design and a few hours later I had this. The actual print is different since I had a new metal cover made.

This is the cab almost finished. Need some finishing touches on the metal fabricating. The volume knob and led for the laser cut ARCADESKIN on the underside will be done next. Then apply the rest of the graphics for the metal hood. Then of course get a new 23" touchscreen PC.

A friend of ours Jason Nolte built a really cool Pedestal cabinet for his Hyperspin setup. So him and I sat down for a few hours, came up with a design and then got to work. About 8 hours later we were completely done. Here are the pictures of the finished product.

The full pedestal has a tattoo style finish with our new matte textured laminate. Jason is a tattoo type guy and wanted something that fits his personality well. The front section below the control panel is a large marquee that lights up really nice and we will post videos of that later when its completely finished. The lower section has a opening that will soon have a custom watercooled computer all lit up through a plexiglass window.

We even wrapped the trackball plate so you can see more of the graphics and not a boring black plate.

A marquee has to be printed on a special vinyl to light up correctly. And these pictures will show exactly what we mean. The top marqeee
is printed on our vinyl that we use for the side art, bezels, and control panels. The bottom marquee is printed on a special backlit vinyl
that is made to show the image when lit up from behind. The bottom picture shows there is almost no difference between the prints
when there is no light behind the graphic. Both of these were applied to one large piece of plexi, but you could also apply the marquee to glass as well.

Alright, this is a arcade system that has been on my "grail" list for a long time. I remember as a kid seeing these all the time at Pizza Hut's and sometimes at the Mall. Now that I think about it maybe Pizza Hut had something to do with the design, since from the side it actually reminds me of a pizza hut logo.

First off I would like to thank Johns Arcade for providing me with all the information about my red tent. Go to his site if you want to learn all you need to know, he did an amazing job and has a pretty awesome collection of games!

Ok here is my build that was done in a weeks time. Enjoy.

I started off with this! Well it was actually put together, I just forgot to take pics before I started. But she is dirty and needed some cleaning and repainting. And she has some dents in which I will keep there to remind myself of all the good memories this thing probably has for many people.
