Any pics of where in the game they’d be mounted?

#11 3 years ago

As usual awesome work

Really looking forward to seeing what you have planned for your straight jacket mod.

#12 3 years ago
Quoted from PinBackpacker:

Will be mounted rt rear behind ramp. Due to scale of the mod it really would not look right anywhere else I tried.
Also lighting will be added and its an easy hook up behind the back of the playfield.

Jacket shots should be next week and it will be placed more toward the center pop area.
Again it will be visually accurate and to scale.
I'll Keep you guys posted. Our next mod scheduled is for the stage and will be both cosmetic and functional.
Few more after that but sales of the first mods will help determine demand.

Still looking forward to the tank!

#19 3 years ago

Few from today placement an lighting test on tank.
Color on tank handle has been changed for final run, now more brass colored like original tank and art work.
This also shows scale and the placement we suggest.
Lighting interactive to GI.

Shot of the Jacket which the final version will look just like this and again placement is totally up to owners.
I like it here front in center also like it above the pops as prior post shows.

Those look great Rob awesome work as always.

Thanks! One thing I have learned is how hard casting and finish is. We could have designed casted and finished there sets of pops in metal in the same time period these have taken.

If these go over well I will finish the ramp lamp mod and stage early next year.

Very nice - these will make great additions to the game!

We Houdini owners are fortunate to have had so many fine mods created for it by numerous folks!

Jackets are live!
Up next Tanks.
Contemplating a shooter insert much like our Mustang shooter plate and soon to be Munsters.
Maybe the HH logo like the carpet on the Elephant?

#28 2 years ago

Received my straightjacket and water torture tank mods today - very cool looking! It's going to be a while before I'll get a chance to install these in my Houdini unfortunately, but I'm looking forward to it.

Thanks Robert!

#34 2 years ago

Appreciate you Sir.
Thanks for your support.

#35 2 years ago

Just got my water cabinet yesterday and it looks great. I see that you will be posting an installation video in early February but until then can you make the pictures on your website downloadable. I'd like to be able to print them out in a large format to refer to during the installation.

Great job and I can't wait to see what you come up with next.

#36 2 years ago

I can email them to you. The pictures on the site are protected I believe. [email protected] ill.get them to you tonight.

keep in mind you might end up wiring it a little bit differently in a month or so

Hooked on Pinball mentioned this might be a possibility so I'm going to hold off for a bit on the installation. Thanks for the heads up.

Ya, looks like cat is out of the bag.
Just got my Tank!
Looks frickin amazing!!

To have it on/ off with the GI you can hook it up as shown.
Future you simply put the Brown/black back in place and swap our black wire to a different open slot in the same connector.
"in theory" I have to say ...and a huge thanks to AP's Rosh and Josh for their support.

#45 2 years ago

Very cool stuff. I don't own a Houdini (want to) but this stuff is so good I want to get one right now.

Keep up the good work.

#46 2 years ago

Putting out feelers for another mod.
Replaces the factory ramp lamp plastic with a real lamp which is lit by the factory led board and replaces the spot light on the stage with new lighting.
All factory plugs just better life like look?

Also debating on a shooter plate fitting for the machine much like our Mustang and Munsters plate.

Sounds similar to the WOZ castle lantern upgrade. DO IT!!!

I'd definitely consider something like that. Especially if it was well integrated with the game play and lights.
