Maybe $30? I'd have to see the model. Also if it had tiny thin mosquito legs they'd be too fragile.

I've installed the "monster fish". Not bad for $15 shipped on eBay. Anyone have any kid's that want the other scooby-doo figures. I had to buy a small lot. Pay shipping and I'll send them out free. Anyway, here are some pictures...

Got any video of that with the flasher going? I think I'd drop it down so its face isn't right in the text.

#104 7 years ago

You should make the flasher green to go with the monster.

Mosquito mod sounds pretty cool, I would be interested in it if you made them. Should try to make a better Monster fish too and make a set out of em

#106 7 years ago

I'm having trouble finding a decent 3D modeler. One guy said he's do it for $150, but it would have to be an abstract design. He said it would look cool, but seriously an abstract mosquito. I don't think so.

I still think the whole idea of using a 3D printer for pinball modification is going to happen, I just don't have the ability to do the modeling. If you know anyone who has this ability please let me know. I think there are a bunch of mods waiting to be made.

I really think the "Beast of Bottomless Lake" works well for the "monster fish"...

Only zcorp makes a 3d
printer that prints in color and their parts are kinda brittle. I have an ABS plastic printer at work, its solid plaatic but the model is only 1 color.

#108 7 years ago

Here is my Monster Fish.

Hey guys,
3D printing is only really intended for prototyping. What you do is print the model, take an RTV Mold of the part and then cast it in a soft or rubberized resin and hand paint the part.

It's a bit of work, but once you have the mold it is relatively inexpensive to make a lot of parts.
You also have the benefit of not having to worry about direct ball strikes.

I'm working on some sideboard decals...

I'm working on some sideboard decals, still looking for some more ideas... Sideboard_Right.jpg Sideboard_Left.jpg

#114 7 years ago

^you should try that decal stuff that people put on the back of Aquariums that have the underwater scenes on them.

#115 7 years ago

Where did you find that Monster Fish figurine?

#116 7 years ago
Quoted from Nibbles:

I don't know, I kind of like the idea of the playfield being the water and the sideboard decal being the surrounding land.

* For the other side I'm thinking about a waterskier or jet ski being torpedoed.

PS: Anyone recognize the bigfoot?

eBay - Beast from Bottomless Lake (Scooby Doo)

#118 7 years ago

I don't see how WH2O and fish tales are related. I guess they both have water in the theme...

#119 7 years ago

I love those side decals! If you go through with it make 2. I'll pay.

I think they are a good pair, but I mostly wanted to just toss in a fun Easter egg. I also just like the whole North-woods, Bigfoot thing. Obviously, it's just the face of the Whitewater Yeti edited into the body of a Bigfoot.

#122 7 years ago

I added some details to the left side. Let me know what you think...

PS: There is a crazy subtle Easter egg in that one too.

I modded my FT with a fully populated TAF playfield. Plays a 1000x's better now. Best mod I ever did.

You? You hate Fish Tale? You should have said something before...Oooohhhh, yyyyeeeeaaahhhh! We know.

Sloppy photoshop test.

I know, it's hard to pry info out of me. I really like to keep to myself most of the time.

Personally, I think the sidewalls will look good. Doing something similar on Atlantis. Love the look.

#127 6 years ago

I love those side decals. The orange looks great and my FT sits next to wh2o so the Bigfoot is awesome! Please p.m. me if you sell these

#128 6 years ago

We'll I might just keep it really, really simple with just one thing on each side.

I'd like to see a boat dock or buoy. How about an outhouse in honor of NEO.

#133 6 years ago

I thInk the skeeters need to be on the right side.

#134 6 years ago

Seriously ,I like the colors,tree& mosquitoes .I like the idea of the mountains but think animated might work better IMO.
When they are done I'd buy.

They are animated.

They are.

#138 6 years ago

I can try to tone down the detail a little bit more. Maybe they are a little too photo-realistic.

#139 6 years ago

They are god awful ugly, and look like terrible air brushing or something. Reminds me of those toppers that one guy makes here..no offence haha

Also liked the lightning. Maybe a torpedo or exploding jet -ski

#141 6 years ago

What no love for the Captain Neo "s#*t tales reference. not even a single thumbs up

#142 6 years ago

I guess the "air brush" look was done on purpose. All of the art on Fish Tales uses half-tones. An air brush look is similar, so in a way I guess that was the look I was going for. I wanted the artwork style to match the machine, which is why the trees and mosquitos were taken from scanned playfield plastics.

I tried to tone down the mountains, but basically colorizing them the color of the mosquitoes tails. I like simple, so I'm just trying to cut down on overall color variation.

#143 6 years ago

I might be interested in buying the decals too.

#144 6 years ago

Just giving you my honest opinion

The blue orange sky colors don't compliment each other very well either...

Just looks really amateur IMO...

Fishtales rules though, keep tweaking it...always room for improvement..

Have you looked at your Fish Tales? What color sky would you suggest?

#146 6 years ago

Man I want a set. Maybe there should be some water skiers that is a great video mode.

#147 6 years ago

I can make the clouds more realistic, but I think I'll stick to the colors already on the machine...

If anyone can find a good waterskier that I can work with that would be great. I wast trying to find one of those retro posters with something cool, but I didn't find anything.

no luck?
