I posted this in another topic, but figured I'd post it here...

Things have changed a lot for me since I started this project.  I went from a small house with hardly any space, and needing to fit all my gaming needs into 1 cabinet, to having a bit more disposable income and a larger house with a decent sized garage.  I've since bought a few cabs and no longer have the need to have everything in one.  I really enjoyed this project though and I learned a lot.  I still have the sketchup plans if anyone wants them.  Right now I'm looking at building up the cabs in my garage/gameroom.  I have a few originals (recently restored an Out Run), but I still have the urge to scratch-build stuff - and I haven't really built anything since my Videotron bartop project.  My next scratch build will probably be a multi-vector machine.  Hopefully later this year as I am still trying to get some Electrocoin Midi's restored and mamed up with groovyarcade.  They've been a fun project actually, maybe I'll post about those too!

Thanks for all the interest along the way anyway.   I still have the Jimbovision control panels. but I never got further than the rotating controls unit.  My guess is they will be pilfered for controls over the next few years.  Sorry it never got finished.  I can at least hope that it has inspired someone else or at the very least given people food for thought when considering building a rotating CP cab (hint: don't) ;)

 :cheers:

Hey Jimbo - no worries.  We've all started and abandoned cabs at some point, right?  Right??  I hope it's not just you and me...

The CP artwork is awesome.  Was it done in Inkscape by any chance?  Could be a good starting point for the thing I'm currently designing in my head...

Haha I'm pretty sure it's not just you and me dude :)

I still have the artwork, it was done in illustrator.  Happy to send it your way if you feel you might be able to use it.
