  • A Suzo stick is a joy forever...
And I said I didn't have space for another cab........but I couldn't leave this baby to it's fait....





As you can see it's in pretty bad condition, well the sides aren't too bad, but the rest....the lower bezel support is completely loose, another plank from somewhere was drifting in the cab too. The CP was hanging on 1 or 2 nails (so I removed it for transport) BUT she is complete !

She also had quite a bump at one point in time apparently, as there is some room between one side and the backside....no water damage though...

Bezel/marquee, mirror, pinball "playfield", LED board, game PCB, monitor, PSU, everything is there. And the price was right ;)

Considering the condition from the front, I'm suprised that the side artwork is in such nice shape.

Good luck on this restore.  I've never seen one of these in person before.

Wow. When is your museum opening? ;-)

(Playing this in MAME does not do the game justice, compared to how it looks in that video. For one, the artwork for the MAME overlay is just too low-res).
NO MORE!!

For now it's in storage but of course I will do the full picture report once I get to work on it.......

The playfield is on top of the cabinet. So, it's hanging upside down. And indeed it's made like a real pinball playfield so it has 3 dimensions.
On top of the playfield is a big PCB that holds all the LEDs that are used as "lamps" on the playfield. My mind is already teased by the idea of replacing some of the red leds (I believe they are all red) with some other colors, but mmmm, that wouldn't be original of course, but it _would_ be very funky and in line with the overall cabinet art.....

You see the playfield including the LEDs in the half-mirror and the monitor is under that to show the picture of the flippers and ball etc.
