Sega Monaco restoration

Postby grains » Sun Dec 13, 2020 3:48 pm

Post split from Sega Monaco instruction sheet - Site Admin.

After the kind help from Treefrog and Badpenny I thought it was time to post a few of pictures of the Monaco project.
The cabinet is nearly complete now so will be starting on the mech very soon.

Thanks again

Very nice.
Good to see someone else doesn't like the vertical stripe!

Thank you Treefrog and Brigham I have been trying a few different finishes over the past few months here's one without stripes. Possibly not to everyone's taste but it does have nice chrome. Sometimes I think less can be more.

Funny I always thought the Monaco was single colour anyway. Only seen a few over the years as rarer than most models. Also they had no jackpot. Other model not using stripes was the progressive star, which was green with white top

I really like the Progressive Star with the white top and hope one day to add one to the collection but I guess these are quite rare.
Those are great colours on the Monaco Starlet thanks Treefrog I will use those on the next Sega project which is a Bonanza Star. !!THUMBSX2!!

The stripe went out of fashion around 1963. My Progressive Star (August 1963) looks similar to your repainted case. My case also needs a revamp. Don't store slot machines for more than a month in the bathroom!

I like the stripe ..... on the right machine.
Of course reassembling cases, and chucking mechs back in after the Winter pull down in time for Easter opening was always a last minute job.

So, at times it was rare to find (on opening day) a bandit with the correct award card for the reels alongside.
As for guaranteeing the castings matched or the back bonnets were the same colour !!!??
I am of course referring to the small family run arcades, that ran like that for three months each year until the nephew from Coventry turned up during the Summer holidays to put it all straight.

Spent many a week in the summer hols at Paignton BP back in the 1950s/60s, I was probably the snotty nosed lad in short trousers banging the machine whilst you were desperately trying to fix them in the back room.
