Aristocrat Fiesta

Hi all,
I have just purchased an Aristocrat Fiesta for restoration. I have been getting more into these recently and love the way they work and the way they are relatively quiet compared to other bandits.
The artwork and award card are very badly damaged and the mech is a whole other story. Has anyone by chance got a scanned copy of these (The Fiesta sign and award card)
This would help me out a lot!

Thanks :)

To whittle it down am I right in thinking this is an Arcadian?

My guess is that it was this little ebay beauty. Somewhere I thought I had original plastics for this machine, but haven't managed to find them on the first look.

If you could find them that would be an amazing help Coin-op!

Damn and blast, I had one of these up until a year or so ago, and could easily have scanned a transfer for you.
I'll chase up the bod I sold it to and see if he'll co-operate.

Have you tried Henry Powells, http://www.1armedbandit.co.uk? He helped me out with award card (original one too) and a repro top box banner glass.
As he regularly sells Arcadians. I'm sure he could do the business. There's a couple on his website. I'm looking to getting an Arcadian as I've decided to collect bandits with different mechs. I've got a Jubilee, Sega, Beromat. Next on my list is an Aristocrat, a BDR (God, I said about a year ago how I detest these, but they've grown on me), eventually a Jennings.
