    Superb job, glad you went with the walnut finish panel, gives a flowing look to it. Glad the glue broke and not the wood, fan grills are very neat looking.

    Great looking and fun build. :) :thumb:

    Right now I´m kinda stuck... The arcade software is not my best friend! But I´ll get there in a couple of days. Photostudio at the end of the week I hope!! :lol: ... and then some GAMING!!!

    thanks!

    Thank you Gnu!

    :lol::lol::lol: ... appreciated!

    Glad you like it... and is has been a really fun build. Always kinda sad when a project comes to an end somehow. The emptyness...

    Ok, I´ve been shooting for a couple of days now. I borrowed a really good camera this time.
    Two photo sessions coming up; one in the studio and another more conceptual session in the metal workshop.

    So here´s a teaser of what´s coming in the next few days... Hope you'll like it! :lol:

    Thank you mate! You´ll find the comp specs on the first page. Controllers have components from Sanwa(akihabarashop). The boot I use is called Maximus Arcade... That´s it I guess.

    I KNOW, ME TOO!! It´s quite the sex beast!... in a strange way. :naughty::naughty::naughty:
    I think it´s the coiled cables... or the camera... combined with a desperation maybe... or just my weird imagination :lol:

    Come on, guys - it has a stick, so, unless you're gay or bi, talking about having sex with it is slightly inappropriate. ;)

    I don´t know if you´ve noticed, but I´ve replaced the roof piece again.
    Made a new one and got rid of that cable storage. Much better now I think...

    Also, here´s the video footage as promised. It´s an 8 min piece of retro gaming(boot up and three different games). The boot up is yet to be perfected. I have to get rid of that XP intro somehow, but I´m onto it. Otherwise, this sex machine works like magic :lol::lol::lol:

    Enjoy!

    this is simply lovely- fantastic mod, one of my very favourites

    Yo have mande me want to try out that Maximum Arcade- is it easy to set up as I have separate emulators for genesis/megadrive, NES, MAME etc but would be nice to use just one for all of them? any tips or hints? I have plenty of legal roms and am not asking for anything illegal, honest guv

    Aaaawesome build, except for the obvious scratch on one of the sides there.
    Well, maybe that scratch makes it perfect, somehow.....
