Itís been awhile folks. The Retroforce Game Museum has sat idly by since September while I busied myself with schoolwork. I couldnít bear to see it sitting there all half finished any longer. Iíve been putting in some hours the past couple of days to push it closer to completion. Advice to cab builders: don't make your cab playable until it's finished.
Hereís my progress report:
-covered control panel in wood grain vinyl
-added speaker fabric
-added marquee light & reflective backing
-designed and printed marquee
-attached marquee (sandwiched between 2 pieces of plexi)
-designed and built screen bezel
All that is left to do is get a big piece of plexi glass to cover the viewing area and get the side art printed.
But enough jibba jabba, pics or it didnít happen right?
Hereís the marquee I designed. I just used some of the assets from the sideart, along with more inspiration from Galaga.
Love this shot.

And a special treat, the cab in action!
