With the play field populated and cleared, I am sure it will look great! My wife loves Cyclone, it is on the list to pick up one day.

I am not artistic, and what you are doing is far more than I would take on at this time. I have looked at what you and others have done and am starting to understand how this work is performed. One day maybe i will attempt something like this, but for now I will pass. If I ever do attempt this, it will be because of threads like this one!

As an update, with so many projects going at once I decided that I cant work under such tight conditions. My wife really wants some room back in the dining room and bedroom too so really only one thing I can do....
Picked up materials to build a 14 x 28 lofted barn as a pinball mancave. Spent all weekend cutting joists and truss boards. And setting the blocks that the skids will set on. Will be nice to have room to keep each machine in one area.

I’ve been following this with great interest. Please continue posting. It sounds like you are getting close to putting clear and final coats on. I am very interested in how you do this and how it works.

I still don’t understand how you color match. I’ve never gotten close with my colors no matter how many drops I put in

Thanks. I am anxious to get back at it too.

At this point my floor is level and square. Finished makihg all my trusses and ready to frame walls as soon as I get back at it.

As far as color matching I find that even the main colors will need a good bit of yellow just from aging. I also will thin down a drop or 2 of a color to a few ml abd then add the diluted pigment a drop at a time. I want the match to be indistinguishable and will keep going until I can accept it.

Should be getting back to these soon hopefully. Set my trusses yesterday, now just need to finish with the roof.

Sheeting and shingling a roof is hard work.
