Looks weird not extending to the top, particularly since the edges of your artwork match the outline of the rest of the cabinet.  But that's a minor thing nobody besides me and opt2not will ever care about.

I'm good with weirding out you two.  I did try extending the art, looked poopy.  This looks more better.

Well it definitely looks more complete now, that's for sure. You happy I talked you into adding the artwork? I think it looks great, regardless of the non-extension at the top.

To me it now looks like a cabaret that could have been factory produced. great job overall. And thanks for taking our small criticisms like a champ.

Looks perfect. Good call on not bringing the art all the way up.

Yeah, ignore James. Extending the artwork would look really dumb.

Thanks guys, this was a fun one.  Start to finish we're looking at like three different cabs and several years involved.  Iterations upon iterations.  Really cool to see what came out in the end and how different it was from my original scheme years and years ago.  New Republic Flight Trainer -> STUN Runner to Starfighter Retheme -> Star Wars Cabaret.  Mind bottling.   

You happy I talked you into adding the artwork?

Yes, 100%.  I just needed a light shove in the right direction.  Thanks!

Yot and whoever the hell that zombie dude is are welcome to their wrong opinions. 

I did a quick and dirty mockup.  I think you still have time to correct this oversight...

Looks great. I see it got moved out of the dungeon nook, so that's a promotion at least.

And the small side table with the Kleenex and Jergens.


My allergies act up and it's just so dry up there it makes it hard to hold the binos...one handed...

It's back in the nook. Slid it out for pics.

Super sweet build.  If I ever get hold of a star wars yoke in the wild I am copying your build.  Its just perfect :)

If ever you decide to actually do so I'll share the art and cut plans for the CPO.  Just hit me up.  Goes for anyone, nothing on here is originally mine accept the CPO panel, all the art is just composited from the original so I have no issue sharing my changes.  I'd just post them up but they are rather largeish.

Top notch build Le Chuck! I love that you added the side art. It really completes the cab.  :applaud:

To be honest I didn't think it needed side-art but this picture shows that I know about as much as Jon Snow--which is nothing.

9/10 adding the complete art package is the difference between making a good project and making an amazing project. Most of the time people shy away from side art because they are either non-artistic or they're too attached to their paint job. But art completes the project and amplifies the theme. It takes just as much planning and effort to create art than it does to build the cab itself, specifically with custom work. Luckily this is using existing art, so the time is chopped down considerably.

Beautiful.  :applaud:

If i can ever get my hands on a Star Wars yoke (not likely in the uk) then I'm copying this cab as is. Stunning work.

One question - did you outsize the base to make it more stable? (Making assumptions about how it looks and could be wrong!)

Is there no one 3d printing yoke replica's?

That's how the base is on the cab this is copied from.  I completed it without and it didn't feel unsteady or anything but I decided I liked the look with it added, so I did. I might take it off again in the future.  Perhaps if one was really wrenching on the yoke you could get it rocking but doubtful.

Sorry about posting in a dormant thread, but have you ever considered this game for inclusion? (I wonder about its yoke applicability).
It is apparently quite good.
