I just finished cleaning up a neglected Bon Voyage. It looks great next to my Air Aces. I was not going for a restore; just a good cleaning, some touch-up and making sure everything worked properly (it does now).

Quoted from Ballypin:

Bally got it right with Super Sonic

Yes, now I want a Supersonic to go with the other two!

Quoted from NoQuarters:

That's a real nice pair !

Thank you!

OK, how about 2 EMs and 1 SS. Now I need a Bally Sky Kings (don't tell my wife).

It is hard to capture the flasher bulbs on all the machines in one image. I need to get my DSLR and take a long exposure sometime.

Quoted from Blitzburgh99:

I’ve always admired Supersonic from afar. How’s she play?

We like it. Has drops, spinner and a cool rule set. It plays a bit faster than the EMs, but the playfield is nicely organized. You do not loose track of the ball with the increased speed. Go to YouTube and you can watch a few videos of game play.

Thanks guys. Yes, the knocker on Bally early solid states are incredible loud and well placed for a solid sound. DC vs AC coils for sure.

#11385 8 months ago

Nice, I saw that on IPBD. Where is that machine physically located? As I understand, it is the only one???

Picked up a Sky Kings last night. And, my wife knows. I really do think that is it for me getting more pins.

Photo will be posted soon.

#11411 7 months ago

Yeah, I said that after pin number 2

My wife has quite a few handbags, shoes, earnings, rings, necklaces and so on. I'm just trying to catch up!

Quoted from pinzrfun:

Lol...the first thing I thought of was you posting a picture of your pissed off wife....
Maybe she'll really like Sky Kings....

She likes all the games. She hates seeing the money taken from the bank account.

Wife is not so mad after all. Here is the machine.

Quoted from DCRand:

Turned a down and brown Jack in the Box into a proper looking machine. Several nights striping dark chocolate (or turd if you prefer) brown paint off of back box and lower cabinet and found what was surprisingly a pretty great looking original paint job beneath. And before the paint stripping, spent a week or so tracking down and fixing the electrical problems including among a number of others, a couple of hard to find broken leaf switch blades causing no 10 point scoring, and the upper red / yellow scoring kick outs not to switch back and forth when the pops fired. Didn't take a pic of the entire machine brown, didn't want to memorialize it. Now if the back glass wasn't faded, it would really look great.

Looks great. What did you strip the paint with?

Here is a panorama view of my collection of working machines. There are 6 more machines that are in progress.[quoted image]

Nice! I see the Sky Kings in the back corner and Air Aces. Now you need a Bon Voyage and Supersonic.

That machine looks new! Fantastic

I agree, that looks sharp with the LED strips.

Also, 100% support that new incandescent bulbs are terrible. The filaments are so thin and prone to breaking.
