Hello folks !
First, sorry for the poor quality of my english spoken :embarassed:
I will present my new project, a 4/5 Galaga arcade machine that I baptized "Mini Galaga". I've already done many bartop since last 2 years, some for friends and some other for friends of my friends…
Here's the fisst pictures of my Mini Galaga. I make it with 15mm MDF with the narrowed plans of Gaetan .

Then, the little work for this weekend, I shape and place the bezel and panel control support, cut the panel control and fix it with hinge to the kick plateso I could open and close the panel control easily.
I done the rear plate too and place it. Place to photos :

I tried my homedesigned panel control stickers cause I'm building a 2 players cabinet so I had to modify the design of the original panel control…
I received all the hardware (T-molding, Sanwa sticks and buttons, coin door etc), stickers are on the way, I only have to work on the software part right now… The next weekend will be heavy work !
To be continued ;D

Yo !

One little step last days !

I done the slot for T-molding and paint all that must be paint (2 coats). I have cut the marquee and put the sticker, cut the bezel glass and put the sticker too. Then I have cut the coin door and then put the kick plate sticker and finally installed the coin door. It look awesome ! Some pics :

Next step, stickers sides and laying the T-molding !

To be continued ?

Salut Yannick 33,

Chouette projet !

Tu utilises quoi comme peinture pour le MDF, tu mets un appret ? Parce que de ce que j'en ai lu ça pompe pas mal le MDF.

Hi Yannick

Great Project !

What kind of paint are you using, do you use Primer ? 'cos as far as I read this kind of wood drinks a lot (like a real punk ^^)

 

Cheers

Hey !

J'utilise un peinture à base de résines Alkyde en 2 couches avec un petit rouleau en mousse, c'est supposé être satiné mais je trouve ça plutôt brillant…

I use a paint based on resins Alkyde in 2 layers with a small foam roller, it is supposed to be satin but I find it rather shiny …

?

Hey folks !

Little step this 2 days ago. I done the marquee lighting with two "neon Led" and the result is just like I wanted it is : bright enough to see it in dim light but not annoying for full light, see the pics :

Then, I've drilled the buttons and joysticks holes, stick the artwork on the CPO, installed the hardware (full Sanwa) and wired it, and then fixed the CPO on the cabinet with a piano hinge and 2 latch to avoid it from toggling during the game. Let's see the pics ?

After that, I installed the Raspberry Pi behind the coin door to make it  always accessible once the back of the cabinet closed and started the long and tedious Recalbox configuration !

But as I have a child's soul, I did not resist the urge to play a small part of Galaga ?

That's all for this 2 last days, next step next wednesday with the 2 sides artwork to stick and the T-molding to install…

Stay tuned ?
