I just completed my Cooling Tower mod. Thanks to all those before me : Soapman, Mancave, phillymadison, Cheese_wizardPQ, Rockrandand Ragefactory I made a 3D file and printed mine using translucent red PLA. I cut a mask for the numbers and primed, had to really apply it think to make it block light. I then airbrushed color to match the gray of the original 2D plastics. I put a warm single SMD LED bulb in each. The wall of the 3d print are thick so I could predrill and use screws. I used very fine screws to fasten the towers to the playfield plastic. I have them wired to the GI, but might switch them to 12v leds and a flasher circuit later.

I might make my design available for sale once I redo the towers in Fusion360 to make a few more design changes to make it more user friendly. I don't plan on having anything for at least a few weeks though.

Awesome towers! Possible to change that red to bright Green?

Yes bright green will definitely be a possibility.

15 years for crane mod but no Deadworld mod.

I never thought we needed a mod for Deadworld except to make it a little sturdier so that the threads didnt strip out or slip when you are putting back together.

Hey I just wanted to let people know, as there was some interest when I last posted some pics of my cooling towers. I have redesigned them for the better. They take a long time to print and the finishing process is quite time consuming but installation is pretty easy and the glow is awesome. Hope you like them. They are up in the market.

Quoted from ChiTownPinHead:

What happens when you hook into the "meltdown" bulb with leds? They should flicker the whole time instead of when the meltdown bulb is lit. Correct?

ChiTownPinHead, you are correct when LEDS ( non ghosting) are connected to the meltdown insert they flicker constantly with an occasional "ON" then flicker again. So incandescents are the only easy way to get around this.

Quoted from ggravesfamily:

lower right flipper coil - can someone send me a pic of the 3 soldered wires, I have to install flipper coil and want to ensure wires are correct

Here you go . Hope it helps. Also note there is no diode on this coil so yours shouldn't either.

I bought my JD in 1994, it was pulled from a route. Is in mint condition .My eagle has metal flakes , I am pretty sure it's original. His photos look just like mine does.

Quoted from killborn:

devilsmuse, thank you for these awesome towers! One thing I didn't notice from the pictures was that the numbers protrude from the tower, such a great detail! There's a couple of other hand painted details I appreciated as well. There's a subtle shadow under the top rim of the tower, the hand painted cracks compliment the comic book drawings of the artwork. Well done!

Killborn, thanks so much for your feedback. I love seeing your Towers in the "wild". Yes the hardest part of making this mod are the raised numbers but I think its all worth it in the end when you turn JD on. You've got a really nice machine there. I got to say I'm liking your blue Deadworld dome. You have inspired me to look into doing that for my Judge Dredd....Play on

Quoted from Milltown:

Im curious .
Are all dredd owners running blue williams coils FL-11629 on lower flippers ?
If not what are you using ?
I've done flipper kits / bushings / coils .. My right flipper just never seems likes its hitting full strength...

FL-11629 are what I have on my game. Right flipper to left ramp shot can be a finnicky shot if you don't hit the ramp just right it sometimes falls back down onto the playfield.
