Amazing Cab.  :applaud:

I have to ask, i'm confused by the Laminate. I'm in the UK and looking to use the type of Laminate you used, for my own Cab. I cant seem to find anywhere that sells laminate. Even a simple google search throws up nothing, or rather confusing results. Could you be more specific on the type of laminate you have used and where it was from?!  I've read through this whole thread several times and this is the one thing i cant seem to get my head around.

Thanks

Here is the Formica UK Office...Formica is a brand of laminate like Wilsonart etc...they can probably point you to your nearest distributor who in turn can provide you with info on your nearest retailer.

I was doubtful about finding it, but just ended up going to a local timber/kitchen manufacturer and they got it no problem.

This mame cab is awesome. I can't believe you sold it. Honestly, 2,500, that's dirt cheap for what you created!

Amazing work with that cabinet, it's near flawless.

The only thing I could complain about (and I looked hard), is the control panel artwork design.
Two of the character profiles are almost completely osbcured from vision by controls, and the character selection/placement you have seems a bit odd.
The panel has 14 characters, which doesn't reflect all the characters in any one SF game, and having Dhalsim grouped together with 3 of the 4 boss characters looks weird (why not Bison?!)

If all 16 players from Super Street Fighter 2 wouldn't have fit,
I think it could have been made better using all the characters from an earlier SF game and copying the same layout as on the selection screen:
SF2 - 8 playable characters (Ryu, E. Honda, Blanka, Guile, Ken, Chun Li, Zangief, Dhalsim)
SF2 CE - 12 playable characters (as above plus the boss characters Balrog, Vega, Sagat, Bison)
SSF2 - 16 playable characters (as above plus the new challengers T-Hawk, Cammy, Fei Long, DeeJay)

edit: oops, sorry for bumping a somewhat old topic.

Hello,

I just started to plan out my cabinet recently and came across this thread. Amazing work really and fantastic attention to detail. One thing I've been trying to find is something like the piece of steel shown below. Can you (or anyone reading this really) tell me where I can find a piece like this? Was it in a hardware store or some other location?






Thanks in advance!  :)

That is actually plastic, Google "Marquee Retainer" or use this: http://www.happcontrols.com/amusement/acesor/49100000.htm

Where did you find the laminate for your cab?  I've been looking everywhere for some but cannot seem to find any.

I love this cabinet and would really love to use some of the art.  It appears that waveryder doesnt come on the site anymore.  Does anybody have contact info, or Martjin, would you be willing to share.  Looking to build a bartop and incorporate similar look.

Thanks,

J

Hi Martjin, I found several images of your original SF cabinet online and they led me here. It looks like this is an old thread. But for some reason, all the pics are missing. Thats too bad because it looks like you did a meticulous job to share your experience. Reading the comments, I get the idea that you have created a work of art. Is it possible to repost your pics. I am also an avid fan of SF since my younger days. And your cabinet has inspired me to try to relive those days. Thanks.

i would like to fix this. i have the pictures here, but the hosting stopped. is there any simple way to change this pictures host / url with the same filenames?

example.

Original http://www.hosting1.com/sf/filename

to http://www.hosting2.com/sf/filename

any help here would be appreciated.

or if the admin can change the url within MySQL that would be great

    • DeLuSioNaL's YouTube Videos
I tried using Wayback Machine to recover them, but the best I could get was this:

https://web.archive.org/web/20080116103149/http://www.vogtschmidtoutdoorcenter.nl/akira/

Looks like the pictures would have been in the "cpg130" folder, but they are gone.

This is why we now post pictures here:  http://forum.arcadecontrols.com/index.php/topic,136713.880.html
and then link to them (That way everything stays on this site).

Sorry I could not be of any more help...

I guess this is hopeless.

Martijn, I hope you post the pictures again someday. Based on the few small images I've seen, its one of the best custom SF cabs out there...
