Well, something allwin related, another machine repatriated. !!YIPPEE!! !!YIPPEE!!

I do like these giant allwins, so much more fun than the smaller types, this one being in perfect original unmolested condition.... Thanks Holland.

Yes the Honest Joe is nice. I also have one and another one finished at an auction near me yesterday and sold for £770, so popular items. I see there is one at Coventry as well this weekend..... Watch the stampede. !PARTY!

There's Ski Jump artwork in Resources, if any good.

Thanks. I've never seen one before but the fact that it is in resources suggests it may be a more common machine. I wonder what the full machine looks like?

Since scanning that flash, I never got around to reassembling the machine... !WHOOPS!
It would appear to be fairly uncommon (like a lot of later Wonders allwins) because I can't find any other picture, either here or on the web.

Another late and rare one - Wonders Pioneer.

Looks familiar.
It's spelt Plioneer - Wonders humour, l presume.

I bought a new machine last night. It should arrive sometime this week. It was on ebay and I would imagine, like me, a few people would have recognised it was unmistakably a Wonders cabinet and mech. What sealed it for me though was the small clue at back of the artwork where it appears the original backflash is still in place (I will be more certain when it arrives). Although not on the list here (another one for Mr PM to add), I would say it is a Supreme Cup, a picture of which can be found in Resources. It's a shame about the Jet Play flash but another one to the collection :D . While on the subject, did Wonders, like Bryans, ever number their machines? I only ask as resto at the moment marked on the inside and the edge of the door, maybe by an operator??
