Mini Nintendo style Cabinet
« on: May 26, 2019, 11:11:23 pm »
My son wanted a arcade cab for his room. So I decided I would build a mini cabinet for him , because he has limited space left . He wanted a Nintendo style arcade  with  galaga artwork (galaga was the first arcade I had & he learned to play video games on that).So now begins the journey......

Very nice. How old is your son? Is he helping you build the cab?

Very cool.  Either that is a giant bowl or this thing is really small!  What are the overall dimensions?  Any chance you can talk him into DK or actual Nintendo artwork?

He will remember this forever. Let him slap whatever graphics he wants on it.

Amen. Galaga is like 100x better than some of the stupid non-arcade stuff people put on their cabs.
