Only allowed to post 10, so here's some more that I think or know are Australian. The Elevator in the last lot is an Australian copy of Conveyor. These are all the ones that I think or know are Australian.

Here's ones that may be Australian, that I've never seen anywhere else if other forumites know these I'd be keen to kno. Some are, dare I say it, too good to be Australian like Stars but I have never seen them anywhere else.

Heres' the last lot. I haven't included ones with laminex/Formica fronts which I am sure are New Zealand that you see in Australia Like Flipball and Skillflip.
There is one machine that really intrigues me in the last lot I post that I accidentally posted two pictures of. It actually looks British but I've never come across another one. Anyone come across them before?

A lot look like copies of British machines

Or some might even be quite rare British machines (albeit tweaked a little?)

Quite a collection if you owned them all?

These are not machines that I have owned but ones that I've come across in Australia and photographed. Thanks for the information on these two. I should have remembered seeing these on the forum, but getting a bit long in the tooth and memory is not what it was.

That BMCO Moon and Stars Penny shoot is the same one I bought out of NZ a few years ago Bob. And I seem to remember him saying something about it having come from Aust? Though someone stripped it and stained a darker colour.

No 36, The Three Sixes, no 39, The Moon and Stars and no 41, the Airplane theme allwin are surely B.M. Co./Bollands. 32 looks like it started life in Germany as Das Henkeltöpfchen, 33 may have originally been an Edgerton Double Loop and 38 is a Rockets by another name. I assume most of the others are from down under. What a fascinating selection of unfamiliar machines. The triggers and coin payout receptacles in particular mark them out as aliens, but style and design-wise, they have more in common with British slots (even built for the same size coin), than French or German wall machines. Thanks, Bob for posting them.

Thanks for all the photos Bob, have seen them over the years but forgotten most. And how cool is the basic showmans paint, they really liked a simple two tone. Not quite up to the standards of the British showmen's painters.
