Quoted from Medisinyl:
I appreciate the encouragement
I don't know if it will sell many sets, and it will be limited in some fashion, but I hope it's at least something entertaining for everyone to see.
For those that like seeing the process, here's a few comparison shots of the key box.
[unnecessary details below ]
One shows the finished piece near one that came off the print bed (slightly different as it was a previous prototype).
The others show some stages of the evolution.
First was just for basic measurements.
Second to test new measurements and add basic wood sculpting (slightly slanted at the back to accommodate the new backboard set).
Third added the key box, but it wound up too short in scale to the lobby table (replacement for the blue ORB guides). I also needed to take the picture frames into account.
Fourth has a taller key box, but I wanted more detail on the key # plaques.
Fifth added the simple plaque detail that works well at this scale/distance, and also a bit more detail to the broken wood. This was the only one that got any clear coat (some areas sanded again afterward).
Still aiming for a reveal by the end of the week.

EDIT: [added an early shot of the new panels roughly in place--will sit slightly higher when installed. Elevator removed in the photo].
Wiring up the newest version of the back panels (not the final finish shown [gets sanded again after this point]).
Corners simply slide out if the playfield needs to be lifted to the maximum (photo shows an unfinished piece with the corner removed, and playfield at max lift).
A minor hassle on rare occasion, but worth the greater immersion had from widening the backboard and closing the gaps (in my opinion ).
Sconce tops go a couple millimeters above the corner piece line, so the transition isn't noticed.
Reveal with video any day now (certainly meant to be experienced with the lights off and mod lighting on ).
