MY Dr. Mario Arcade Cabinet
« on: April 24, 2017, 07:23:50 pm »
i start from scratch a nintendo dr. Mario arcade Cabinet. Of course is a limited edition because the original Dr. Mario (vs. Dr.mario) nintendo unisystem is a different in colour and other.  i was inspired by a user  wyo that create a zelda arcade cabinet, when i start i had other  nintendo cabinets , donkey kong , donkey kong jr , and original popeye. i want something special and unique. and because when i was young i was really good in  dr. mario game boy and arcade i decide to do a special tribute.


this is the job finished buy i want explain step by step.

The finish on that looks great.  Did you paint or laminate?

Nintendo cabinets remind me of the old Mopar muscle cars in that they look good in about any color.

Haha, I thought there was a rush of Dr. Mario cab builders on here recently because of the other thread, then I realized it's the same BYOAC member.

NICE JOB! It looks awesome and I love that color. Look forward to the pics!

That art looks familiar. Is that Ridic Ricks?

Great job on this! Did you use the thisoldgame art package? Who sells the instruction sticker? Do you remember the name of he green you used?
