I present to you the 'Tower of Torture' (or insert whatever name you wish).
When we received ACNC, I immediately could see the potential to build out the castle, starting with a second tower to even out the upper playfield.
This is my first attempt at creating a multi-process (build) mod; sculpt, mold, cast and paint. Actually it's my first mod. Seen below is the original sculpt in grey along with an unpainted cast and a fully painted tower. Cast is a very hard polyurethane resin/plastic (D65). This tower is based on the small 2 brick L-shaped piece on the front right corner of the upper playfield. The tower is purposely smaller than the left tower, but has the same scale bricks and stands 1/4" to the glass. It does not obscure the upper flipper or guillotine.
I am testing the waters here to see what the interest is prior to creating a Pinside store as I don't know if I can produce these in any appreciable quantity or speed. I expect that cast and paint time would be 1-2 weeks. I would need a commitment of purchase but I would not want to take any money until your tower is cast, painted and ready to ship. I am not sure if this can be done in market place so for the time being I will donate to Pinside on any sales. I will try to contact Robin to see if he can answer these questions.
To install, unscrew the 3D printed block from the playfield (2 screws), remove the screw holding in the L-shape sculpt and gently wiggle it off off the 3D printed block (there are two thin strips of adhesive holding it on). Once removed, sit the new tower on the block and install the screw. (you can use a small strip of double sided adhesive if you think that it is necessary). Place the tower/block back on the upper playfield and screw it down with the original 2 screws. This is a completely reversible mod.
Initial pricing (USD):
Tower (fully painted) $120
Tower (unpainted) $50
Shipping (via Post) is extra, but approximately $10 in Canada, $20 in US. Unsure of International but can get pricing. Signature & tracking options are extra (this has always perplexed me but it is the case).
Thanks for your interest!
