Hey guys and gals, I just recently replaced the plastics set on my F-14 and I have some spares. I do believe I have most everything, while faded to a light blue (didn't notice until side by side with new set) but are in good shape. I don't really want to re-plastic someone's machine for free, but I would love to help out a couple of F-14 owners who may need 1 or 2 or 3 plastics to get their machine right so they don't have to buy a whole set. I think I have every piece except the center "mouse eared" piece, which I gave to a Pinsider. PM me if you need any of it and I'll get it to you. All I ask is that you use it for you machine that you have in your possession at the time that you request it. I love my brothers and sister to the north, but please, continental 48 only. Thanks and keep on playing!!

PM Sent! This is an awesome gesture!

Still have an entire set minus the mouse ears (center piece) and banana (plastic to the left of the lower T_O_M) if anyone needs a specific piece or three. Also up for grabs, I just found an unused set of spinner decals someone can nab. As always, no charge, I just ask that you actually use it for a machine and not stockpile or sell it. Thanks guys!

Hey folks, I have had a bunch of replies of "I'll take the set". Maybe I'm not being specific- it's no longer a complete set- is 100% minus the banana piece to the left of the lower TOM's, and minus the center mouse eared piece. These have been given to pinsiders. Since it isn't a complete set anyway, I am trying to spread the love to a few different machines with specific needs and may be able to avoid a plastic set purchase. Not really looking to just ship the whole lot to someone to repair their one machine (it isn't a complete set, I said that right, did you read the thread or just the topic title?). Anyway, just clarifying, no offense meant toward anyone requesting the entire set, maybe I wasn't clear enough. Also found a set of spinner decals I never used, so add them to the up for grabs list. Thanks guys!

Gone: -Center piece (mouse ears)
-Slings
-Left outlane (banana to left of lower TOM's))
-Large colored piece which wraps around top TOM's and has flasher holes, and above related clear piece
-Clear diverter ramp "cover" sometimes used for Yakov sticker Mod
-"under diverter" plastic, "pistol" shaped, sits directly above left, upper flipper
-spinner decals

Some of my clear plastics are new repro too... If they were a pain in the ass (rivets, etc etc) I just reused the old ones. Good example: the cover piece for the the left Kill Yakov ramp where people place that ebay MOD sticker- I had that piece brand new with the blue crap still on it (going to Crash). Anyway, keep the requests coming.

My plastics are good, but it's good to see another example of the helpfulness of the pinball community. Nice!

And Ms. Mae is looking nice too.

This seller gladly sent me a piece free of charge. To the guys who still want a free set and are trying to take advantage of this opportunity, goodbye. You are not welcome here on Pinside.

Thanks man! I'll never really be a "seller"- cept maybe for pins when I absolutely have to, but I figured out a long time ago that it's more productive to attempt to model the behavior I'd like to see more of (geezus, that sounds pretentious, I hope you all know what I mean),, and maybe foster more of it... than to litter other threads with my "opinions" of other people's behavior that I won't change by flaming them anyway. Lol, I still do that too on rare occasion, but I prefer to help one another, rather than always having an angle... Ex. 2 dirty old plastics just listed for 50 bucks by someone well known for "shenanigans", when the whole set for that machine was 119 at absolute worst- I leave the slithering to others... Lol, or the guy on ebay who is selling his "Shadow Topper"- the extra included mini-topper with the cpr set, for 49.99.. But I get a ton of help and support here, I just like to pay it forward and never take it for granted when I am able...

The whole plastics ordeal is just ludicrous. The money people spend on sets/pieces is insane. I make all the plastics I can myself. All I need are the scans of original pieces. This works for route machines but if these were my own games I would probably take better care to make them look "cleaner."

How about a nice tutorial?

No kidding!! And a playfield scanning tutorial as well, so I can get my Batman DE at least looking presentable...

THANKS for the F-14 banana plastic over the TOM targets on the lower left of the playfield! It cleaned up nicely!

I can ship my old one to whoever may be missing this plastic. Be advised that the one I am offering is broken but taped together with clear packing tape. It is not perfect but better than nothing if yours is missing. PM me if you want it, mailed at no charge!

I am the pinsider that DarkKnight gave this piece too. He shipped it all the way to Canada for me no charge.

Class act!!

Arrrghhh - saw this too late.

Looking for the top center piece behind the TOMCAT targets (mine is broken) but see it is gone - oh well next time maybe...

Thanks for offering them though.
