Your artwork looks great. Operating at private hire venues on private land is a good way to go, as travelling old penny arcades in public environments (outside of the usual fairground venues) often evade official scrutiny until some jealous sole makes a complaint, especially when ;
1. it looks like a commercial operation, and
2. It looks like it's taking good money,
3. there isn't a cheery, retired, real old character standing there running it.

Some of you coin experts out there may spot the date on the old penny! I was considering running a competition where customers that find one in their purchased old pennies can win £50 😂
Paul ....

If you check This thread I started two years ago you'll see a connection.
Too many buckets of pre decimal coins is my problem, they'll be somewhere I guess.

So I wanted the underside of the opening sides to look a bit fancy and here is the result.

The lightbulbs are also in the process of being fitted. Something warm white and traditional.

I hope that everything will be back together in the next week, more to follow 😀

Who is the person doing the fabulous paintwork - he needs adding to the 'Resources' section for future reference.

He is a good friend and fairground painter. I will add a link to his website and his number once the job has been finished. I collect the finished trailer a week tomorrow then I can start fitting the machines. 😀

So the flaps are back on, lined and finished. The lighting and trellises have been installed today.

Tilts to be added tomorrow, these will have scalloped edges hopefully!

So the arcade project has returned home for final build and installation of the machines.

Here are some pictures of the work as everything starts to come together.
I am very pleased with the Lakin design that we have tried to emulate from the heyday period of fairground art.

That is stunning Paul, you must be delighted with it.
A true credit to your dedication.
I'd be astonished to hear if you got much change out of a crisp £50 note for that lot and no mistake!
