Very nicely done, definitely one of the better scale replica's I've seen.

Looks great.  I did a much worse looking bartop in that same shape.

This forum needs more threads about Arcade 1Up cabinets.

This looks like the one I built. Looks good. Iím assuming you found the art here since Iíve never seen it anywhere else. Totally agree on the volcano buttons. Kinda painful to deal with.

Good job.

It does not matter if a Tempest cab is a bartop, upright or cabaret, they always look awesome. That being said, this is a very nice build, well done  :applaud:

I agree with you on the vesa mount nightmare comment. I am currently thinking on how to do this myself and with my screen: the vesa mounting holes are not centered with respect to the screen, the bezel around the screen has a different thickness on the bottom, top and sides, the back itself is not flat (there is a hump)  :dizzy:
