I believe this is the first time we've heard about a 3D printer produced item, I wonder how common this kind of comment will become?

Hello I've got two Captain Kidd's and one Victory and could use some help with my C/K I have it scoring mostly but am not sure why I can't get it to score past 70,000 or so... I'm not sure if it would go that far or would it "reset it self after the score wheels limited out ? And I'm lucky to have all of the correct caps with the correct numbers and letters but two dead post are repo's and I need to replace the roll over lanes with the plastic covers but otherwise SHE'S BEAUTIFUL.i would love to find a play card or get a copy of one and if it's not appearent I am new to this sight and pinballing so PLEASE forgive me for my excitement but just love the fact that I'm saving this machine when I found her she was left for dead but that's another story anyway thank you for your help Brian W.Henson

Hi Brian and welcome. We have a few members on board here versed in the mysteries of electromechanical games, including pinball (as you can see from this 7 page topic). No doubt they can advise about specific problems you may encounter, but as this is a predominantly British slot machine community, we don't often encounter early Genco pinballs. I must admit, I had to visit the Internet Pinball Database to discover what a Captain Kidd and Victory look like. Can we see some pictures?

Hi,

I don’t have a Flying Scott, but I do have four other Gencos of the same period, so if you think that might be of any help, then please ask questions.

Happy to help if I can.

Chris

Anyone got a spare back glass for the Flying Scot Pintable or willing to make me a scan from their backglass? Anyone living in Ipswich Suffolk would be ideal, as a guy there can make basically a brand new backglass, no scrapes or chips or worn parts etc., but he needs a broken or damaged glass to work with to do this.
