More progress today - now to leave it dry before giving it a cut and polish then it's time to start the re assembly.

Very Nice ddtoys!
I am looking forward to seeing this beauty finished so please keep the pics coming.

Thanks Nigel.

I'll keep the updates coming ;)

Gave it a cut and polish today and pretty happy with the results, maybe even too good a result - I wanted nice, not new.

Have to wait for the chrome platers to finish the legs and coin plate etc., so this will be the last update till then. Don't want to start the target section until this sections 100% done.

Got the parts back from the electroplaters so I could finally re assemble the gun stand. I'm pretty happy with the results. Now I need some free time to do the target section

This game had taken a back seat as I don't have the room to strip and restore the big target section. But I've had a bad back so finally made up the new cable from the target section to the gun stand which got me tinkering again.

Got the score section working again and cleaned up the moon which lights up when you shoot a coon. Hopefully get rid of a few of these pinball machines soon and get the space I need to finish it.

Well guys it’s only taken 3 years and a pandemic to finally get to do my Coon hunt cabinet,

We were on holidays when the Chinese Virus I mean corona virus went ballistic and the government website said get home ASAP cutting our holiday short and on our return we had to quarantine at home for 2 weeks.
Most people would be upset but not me I have a government order to stay home and not deal with anyone outside my house so without no options to work or help others I had 2 weeks to do my own games that have been put off.

2 days the wife was already mental well more mental me I have 2 days left and I’m wishing I had longer hahahah

Forgive me if the photos end up on the wrong order they never Seem to post up in the order I select them for some reason

You've done a wonderful job! and a fantastic looking and fun game to play too.
I love the American coin-op rifle shooting games. Can Can Wonderland in Minneapolis has a massive floorspace packed with hundreds of similar US vintage electro mechanical arcade machines to play.
My friend Larry operates an arcade there both with these originals, but also impressive, innovative new machines, designed and built in a traditional style.
There is also a massive indoor crazy golf course with the concept and construction of each hole built by a different designer, leading to a truly amazing result, and for pinball enthusiasts another huge collection, displayed and working, and yet another collection of early video, space and other EM rifle shooting games.

Hahaha nah it still won’t work but at least it will look pretty.
I’m still trying to track down a few parts it needs, but I’m pretty sure some Americans think Posting something to Australia opens a portal from hell direct to their gamesroom. Conversations about parts - yep, happy to find you the part etc. etc., ask for a total including shipping and they just stop talking. 😂😂😂
