Store them at my place. It's not so far. ;)

No problem Tim, you are always wecome. But, I've recently had hernia surgery... so you'll still have to drive here and dig a game out of my basement :lol:

So, my rub-on transfers arrived today.
Here's what a couple of hundred bucks looks like :(

Just a little teaser.
I airbrushed some of the darker blue areas that were uneven last night. Then I started aplying some of the rub-on transfers. I love this stuff!!! :D

This isn't fully complete yet, of course.
But here's a really early pic before any work was done.
Soon, there won't be anything we won't be able to repair :)
What I love about this process is that it is very close to how the original art was produced (at least in principle).

Once I finish painting the wooden rails I'll get this dropped into the machine. At least Quicksilver should be ready before the weekend.

With any luck, I can have Seawitch re-assembled by December. Looking forward to a good Christmas! :D

I ordered a big lot of replacement flippers a long time ago.
I have both styles. There is the complete 1 piece assembly which is good for Stern and Bally, and just the plastic that fits over the metal shoe (for early Stern Type 1 games like Stars, Dracula etc).

Marcos is where I got the 1-piece style and I think Pinball Life is where I got the plastic-only type. I think that Terry recently also added the entire assembly for Type 1 games... this includes new metal shoe+shaft with the plastic bat, but it is expensive... double the price.

Yeah, previous owner included it with the machine. Might have to throw it into a frame and up on the gameroom wall :mrgreen:

I wonder if the original artist ever got any recognition for that... or whether they even ever saw it?

I love spotting the influences and ripoffs.
Space Invaders rips off H.R. Giger.
Viper is a nod to Hajime Sorayama. (I say nod given how accomplished Parkinson is)
Barracora also goes Giger. https://narrativeinart.files.wordpress. ... giger1.jpg

People played so loose with copyright up until the time in the 80s where cocaine started getting really popular. (just a coincidence, I'm sure)
My favourite example is the inclusion of "FIFA World Cup" on the Bally Kick Off backglass. https://1.bp.blogspot.com/-1ca4djDktsQ/ ... 224604.jpg
Can you imagine someone putting that on their product unlicensed these days?

I got Quicksilver back together.
After a few adjustments it seems to be playing very well. The only big issue is that my small 10pt switches are all non functioning. I will have to track that down, but all the important stuff is 100%.

I should be able to shift efforts over to Seawitch soon.

Quicksilver is a challenging taskmaster of a game: the diagonal drops in front of the flippers says “try me “ but harsh reality says “oh fuck”

Bally: Fathom x 2, Centaur
Gottlieb: Black Hole
Wanted: Catacomb, Solar Fire, Balls-a-Poppin Seawitch backglass
