So, You want to build a Classic Nintendo Cab?
« on: March 22, 2015, 03:56:07 pm »
I've come to the realization that there is no one single place for people to find all the information they need to recreate the classic Nintendo arcade cabinets. The following is a start to the best collection i have of plans, pictures, best places for parts, etc, for you to recreate your very own classic Nintendo upright.


Plans:
You have three main options here:
-Gaetan: http://forum.arcadecontrols.com/index.php/topic,144300.0.html
-bdn103's Site: ClassicArcadeCabinets.com
-Jackobud: http://jakobud.com/plan-list.php

There are conflicting reports about the accuracy of the Jackobud plans, however they are a quick resource and the older way we used to build these arcades. The newer Gaetan plans were a joint Canadian/French project done by the two of us to produce an accurate set of plans accompanied by images. They include a 1:1 template for the side panels that you can take to your nearest Staples, (or large format printer) and create an accurate cutting template to paste directly onto your wood. The plans were modelled off of my own personal Japanese plywood DK cab.

bdn103's ClassicArcadeCabinets.com has taken the Gaetan plans and modified them for use on a CnC. This is really cool and will save you a lot of woodworking if you have access to a CnC and can use the vCarve drawing set!


A few key dimensions:
-Marquee Plexi: 568mm Wide x 148.5mm High x 2mm Thick (plus the thickness of the artwork)
-Bezel Plexi: 568mm Wide x 512.5mm High x 4mm Thick (including artwork, it's screen printed on to the plexi)

Pictures
My Gallery - https://flic.kr/s/aHsk7Zk6GM
I have a small gallery here of the TGK4-UP-US Japanese built, Donkey Kong cabinet i'm rebuilding/modding.

Gaetan's Site: http://www.arcadecab.fr
a Large database of images and the host site for the Gaetan plans.

For more information check out the Builds/Restores and Other Resources sections below.


Parts
Possibly one of the best resources for parts is MikesArcade. He has a selection of both reproduction and original OEM parts for the standard nintendo cabinet. There are other vendors like Twisted Quarter, Chomping Quarters, and T-Moulding.com. Great reproduction art can be found at both This Old Game and Game on Graphix. Another couple resources are the Killer List Of Video Games for sale section (KLOV), and eBay (although eBay can be quite pricy). This list is always going to be incomplete, It's best you take your time and really do your homework on what parts you really need and what ones you can get a good deal on from people parting out old machines. Also, if money isn't an object, also check out the Boulder Arcade Factory, they make reproduction Nintendo cabinets.

Paint and Laminate
Original nintendo cabs have a special laminated finish to them and aren't just painted wood. However some builders have taken the time to match paint colours. Please note: there are colour variances between the U.S. made blue particle board cabs and the Japanese made plywood cabs. As well as colours fading over time. it's suggested that if you are using one of the paints below to touch up a cabinet that you test first to find compatibility, or simply choose one close and repaint all the painted surfaces.

DK Blue - Neilyboy
DK Blue - javeryh
DK Blue - Mauzy
DK Blue - jdbailey1206
DK Blue - EvilNuff
DK Blue - mann0mann (off the shelf spray!)*
DKJr/Mario Bros. Orange - MackAttack*
DKJr/Mario Bros. Orange - descrentl*
Radarscope Red - BUCKETHEAD

Nice work Chance!

You should add Buckethead's restore to the mix.  I didn't see any Red Radarscope converted DK's in your example list.  His is gorgeous!  http://forum.arcadecontrols.com/index.php/topic,79183.msg826802.html#msg826802l

Also, Paint codes are useful too:  http://wiki.arcadecontrols.com/wiki/Paint_color_codes

  This concerns me... If one was to do that, wouldn't getting a cab disassembling it and taking EXACT measurements and scans rather than take for granted something is correct, Before pumping out kits to unsuspecting customers that think there getting some high level awesome reproduction just because it has a CNS label attached to it?

What you say makes sense. I'm actually working on verifying this exact information, from more than a single source. It's definitely a concern, and I wouldn't want to put out a promise I couldn't deliver on.

I never posted these builds that I finished last summer here before....mostly because I couldnt figure out how to register on this site.  I actually had to google how to answer the security stuff. Haha.

Anyway, heres my Donkey Kong Pauline scratch build and my Fix It Felix scratch build posted over at KLOV.

Thanks a lot, I appreciate it. :)  I owe a lot of thanks to many of the projects youve already listed above....as I did a lot of research myself before I built my cabs. 

Being a learning experience...there are definitely a few things I would have done differently...and Im applying that to the new Nintendo builds that I currently am working on right now.  Now that Im registered here, Ill definitely get a build thread going soon.

Awesome list by the way!

Haha, yeah!  That door was gonna be used for a red DK scratch build...but I ended up lucking into an original.  Funny thing is, I recently sold it...so I decided Im going to build a 5 slot red DK (Thankfully, I made a stencil of the 5 slot before I sold it) with a 25" CRT this summer because I miss it so much! Fortunately, I picked up WAY to may of Takemans repro doors this last run...so now I have to many doors that need cabs.  haha.  So Ive got plans to get busy this summer with multiple Nintendo builds!  They really are the best looking cab out there.....and now so hard to find!!

Added dimensions for the bezel and marquee plexi. These came from an original DK3 bezel, and the marquee from a VS. Super Mario Bros. Measurements were done in metric, however i have reason to believe the parts were cut using Imperial.

My favorite Nintendo cab is Punch-Out!!/ Dual screen PlayChoice 10. I couldn't find any plans, plus I'm a building dummy (meaning I don't know how to cut wood and stuff), so I ended up buying an empty cab. But if you can add plans for one, I'm sureit would be helpful. Also Nintendo Super System.

Hi ChanceKJ,

Do you accept a mini Donkey Kong Cab in your build list ?

Good deal.

Having done that, I would encourage anyone here who ISN'T a KLOV member to join, especially if you plan on getting into dedicated collecting one day.  :cheers:

I have a .vs cab for a future restore if you need any dimensions.  My wooden coin door is intact. :-)

Thanks! If you have any questions post them here, and if you have a few you might want to check out the link to my Donkey Kong build in my signature. It's a gutted Nintendo cab as well
