Re: Lights of London pinball

Certainly a rare and interesting game, appears you have player control over the fingers to change scoring hole shots using the large knob on the front, plus being early E/M. But with such a large backlog of projects I've almost stopped buying machines, unless something really unusual and this wouldn...

But I couldn't place the trim or anything I'd seen like it. Was just conversing with a specialist early pin collector in the US about something else so a...

I bet they wouldn’t have done that during the war years, never heard of recycling or need for raw materials

Re: Time to ........

Great job Tree in doing only what was needed. I've always thought any machine should work properly first, cosmetics second. And that machine is fine looking as-is, some character, which in this day of so many over restored pieces is getting harder to find. I always say, look at US eBay, sinking unde...

Re: Ultra-rare Nintendo PlayStation prototype sells for just $360,000

Re: Coastal Command Machine

Yes PM, Penny back, and pretty sure if you were to ask Sweetmeats you'll find he took your mystery photo 15 years ago. I thought I had more photos Moon but when I'm busy on other peoples machines I tend to forget to take them. Really is a killer piece that I'd have loved to own myself.

Re: Coastal Command Machine

I found an article about John in the World's Fair magazine supplement dating 1974. And in it John states this Bomb Aimer to be by Ahrens. I was the one to find plywood covering the original front door and remove it, as seen in this photo when John owned it, why it was covered I have no idea?
