Hi,

Super job, Marco. Question: How does the coin get into the pinfield? It looks like the coin rails are a closed track.

Wow. You hand made all of the parts?

That looks great. Do you have any video of it operating?

That is a fantastic piece of work Marco! Incredible attention to detail. !!THUMBSX2!! **xXx**

I've often thought if I tried to repro. a game Zeppelin would be the one. Chances of finding an original almost nil, but it's so simple and beautiful.

There's a gap behind the apex of the lower rail, so the coin either overshoots and returns to play (if fired too hard) or falls through to the playfield below.
