As some of you may know I decide to part ways with my Surf Champ. Well, it didn't take me very long to find another game. After a couple days of waiting I finally was able pick up my Zaccaria Moon Flight very late last night. It looks like for the rest of today it is going to be sitting in the garage and then tonight I'm moving it in the gameroom. Super excited to get this thing back running again here soon. I will be posting about my progress a lot here on Pinside. Here is a couple pics of the cabinet. I'll have more pics tonight

Yeah it scores into the millions, very weird.

Quoted from bonzo71:

The playfield art on those puts the American games to shame.

Yeah, the artwork is beautiful.

Here is some pictures of the playfield after I cleaned off a lot of grime.

Found these aspects of the game to be interesting. The first picture is of one of the score cards. It says "New Liberal Features, More Fun". The other one is a permit from Oregon City, Oregon to operate the game. Lastly, the copper or brass is still nice and shiny!

Maybe its the metric system
Nice score.

Decided to put a full custom insert LED kit in it. Should look pretty cool when I'm done!

Quoted from ronlisa:

Congrats on such a awesome looking game!

The whole game is beautiful! It amazingly only has around 15,000 plays on it.


PF looks real good - factory clear coat ?
digg the Lic. tag from 79 adds history to it's life

Yes, they put a clear coat on it when it was made. The tag is pretty cool.

Quoted from Pin-it:

I like how European pin manufs. took it in stride to C/C there playfields, imagine if the domestics had done that too.

Yeah, it would have been pretty cool.

Chrome finish buffed out nice with a little Turtle Wax Polishing Compound. Also the backglass is in pretty good condition, slight cracking.

Quoted from stashyboy:

...lots of Williams parts from the era.....

Yeah, every part has a Williams parts number on it. Just like a Sonic (Segasa) game does.

Ablaze LED's looked terrible in it. I didn't even have the heart to snap a photo. I now decided to replace every 44 in the game with 47's.

Quoted from IntoPinball:

I put LED warm whites from Cointaker under my caps on my '52 Williams Hong Kong. I am not in love with the LEDs, but after spending a little over $10 each for 8 of them, I didn't want them to get damaged.

Darn Cointaker are excessively priced, but they are WAY BETTER than Ablaze from pinballlife. I ordered some for the pops, credit light, and coindoor from them.

Quoted from IntoPinball:

I spoke with Melissa there and actually had my brother pick some up for me...This is Cointaker... Ebay link

Not to bad! I'll have to think about getting some.

Quoted from stashyboy:

Those are their older style that can 'ghost' in EMs. I have some of both the new (non-ghosting) and this older style. If you don't mind the quick flash from them, they are fine. I'd rather have the newer style, but they are pricey. (twice as much)

Thanks for the tip!
