Allwin replica for an RAF museum

Postby classicgambler » Sun Oct 21, 2012 1:44 pm

Hello guys,
I am new to this forum. First of all, thanks for letting me join and, secondly, I am in the process of making an allwin machine from scratch. It will only be a replica one and none working. I am doing this for an RAF museum here in Cornwall, UK. The question is, what type would there have been from the years 1940s - 1945? I would like any photos, so as to use as an idea !!THUMBSX2!!

Thank you.

Hi classicgambler and welcome.

Keeping to the theme, why not look at World War Themed Allwins

In fact, if you're good with a brush (and I guess you are, as you're planning to make an Allwin fit for a museum) Why not spend a mere £150 on a kit, knock up a case to go round it and copy WW II aeroplane theme backflash from above.
You'd get a working model earning 2p a throw and you'd have spent little but still put the finishing touches yourself.

Our member JC is the vendor and may be contacted by PM through this site if you have questions about the kit

Be soon ...... from what I hear the stock is going very fast and as we know when it's gone it's gone for ever!

Aren't they re-manufactured when they go out of stock? I guess its quite a high re-order to make economic sense.

Thanks for that, badpenny, although the one I am building will be a replica and in a mocked pub at the museum. I will have to stick with none-working but made to look as real as possible, so no money can be put in and not be playable. The spares that are on there will be of interest to me, so I appreciate the link but I have tried to buy a couple of things such as the coin cup and the coin entry but, for some unknown reason, it won't let me - not sure why, but I will keep on trying as it is a paypal payment too, which is better. !!THUMBSX2!!

classicgambler - I'll highlight to JC the problems you've been having purchasing, I'm sure he'll contact you.

jimmy55 - Nostalgic have gone out of business, the stock for sale are all that's left and were bought by Jerry Chattenton who owns The Vintage Amusement Arcade in Brighton, Publishes Mechanical Memories Magazine and co-runs the Coventry Auction

There is no current intention to re-order when this stock has gone, never say never, but I don't think in these days of shite finances there is any money for the bulk re-ordering needed to produce anymore.

As Mussolini said "He who hesitates es multo buggered." .... smart man Mussolini.

Good luck with your allwin project classicgambler. I've no idea why you have had problems buying from the site - you say "it won't let me" - at what point are you experiencing difficulty? Each time you click on an 'add to basket' link, you will be connected to the Paypal site. When you have completed your order, you will then checkout via Paypal........ at what point is it not working?

As for the allwin kits mentioned above, they have proved very popular - so much so, they are now all gone! (Sold the last two yesterday). And as BP says, this is all remaining stock - when it's gone, it's gone. There will be no more produced.

Thanks for that info JC. One of your items that I am after has sold out so I'm outta luck there. It was the coin cup. When I click on 'add to basket', it says at the bottom of my screen 'waiting for paypal... sending request', then that's it. Nothing happens. So, not sure why this is !PUZZLED!

Postby classicgambler » Mon Nov 12, 2012 3:00 pm

Topic merged - Site admin.

Hello guys, as some of you know I am making a replica of a machine (NONE WORKING). I have made some ball tracks to go in. Now I would like to fix it onto the backflash. Can anyone tell me what is the best way to fix it onto the backflash :!?!:
