Quoted from vireland:

Nice. Are you going to use the hole plugs or just leave them open?

Maybe...are they easy to get out, if needed?
FYI, only use the hex spacers on the Pro and not the Premium. the ears won’t clear the wood on top on the Premium with the hex spacers.
I caught my mistake quickly, if unnoticed...you could burnout your motor and, or break the ears off the figure.
I didn’t realize, it comes with instructions for the pro and prem on the flip side of the paper.

Yeah, the spacers are only for the pro. Like you found out, the instructions point that out. I include mounting hardware and instructions for both the Pro and Premium in one box.

The plugs are pretty easy to get out. There's a tiny tab on the top of them, if you rotate that so it's pointed to the outside (left one pointing to 9 o'clock, right one pointing to 3 o'clock), you can pop them out pretty easily by sliding a fingernail under them.

So I tried my first plug... they are soo small.
just as I was going to plug the hole, it slipped out of my hand. and for the life of me... I can’t find that mini plug! so, for me...no plugs!

I didn’t even see the hole plugs in the box, I will look again today.

They're very tiny and are in the round plastic case with the screws and standoffs.

I got one in, the other popped out and vanished...

It's a delicate balance between making them tight, but not so tight you can't get them out if you need to.

#208 3 months ago

So, I asked my 16 yr old daughter, who loves to paint, to paint my Anubis. She asked “dad-what color do you want it to be?” And I said “whatever you think-you’re the expert”.
This is what she came up after doing some research on it. I really like it a lot.

I'll get your straightened out today. I had an annual (non-pinball) festival I volunteer at that tied me up last week through this past weekend. It's over now and I'm recovering/catching up.

Nice. Well matched to play-field. I like the distant shot, which reminds me; I wish to install side blades too.

Where did you get the tourches from ?

#220 3 months ago

exactly, they are the best looking torches imo.

Quoted from vireland:

thanks, glad how it came out, i just borrowed a black acrylic color from my little daughter and watered it down a lot. after the wash i just applied some darker highlights with a slightly less dilluted color.

Quoted from RockfordReplay:

thanks! i love the blades, iron maiden has one of the most cohesive looks in my opinion: PF, premium cabinet and artblades really fit together perfectly!

I went with metallic gold with some black and brown washes (following it with just a little bit of gold highlights).

Yes just need to find some time to install it now!

Love the details in the sculpt PinMonk, very well done!

Looks like a Tomb Treasure itself! Definitely post when you get this installed! I want to see how it looks on the backpanel!

Got mine, painted it and am very happy how it looks installed.

Looks good, but it would benefit even more with some uplighting by taking that flasher post and making a spotlight totem pole with a GI spotlight halfway up and the flasher still on top. Uplit, these look even better.

Don't profess to being the best artist. In fact I'm more comfortable stripping a playfield down but thanks to a shove from thewool seeing what he'd done I had a go.
Turned out ok for me and with the uplight vireland suggested it just sets it off superbly with the dark shadow it casts. The pic was took with just the gi lit.
I don't have any good warm white led so I pinched a white one for now out the coin door on BM66.

I like this one a LOT. How does it blend in with the rest of the stuff on the backboard?

Are you plugging the screw holes or leaving them open?

Are those lights on the eyes or just neon orange paint? It looks like they're glowing...

It’s just paint

It looks pretty good I think with the rest of the backboard.Longer it's in there the more I'm liking it.
The spotlight is a must though for the effect.
I will put the plugs in once I paint them just to finish it off as well as the torches from mezel.

Yep, it looks super groovy. I like your version of the finish a LOT, and glad you up-lit it as well. You know what would be cool is to get those tiny directional lights Deadpool debuted to light the disco ball and use those for the uplight and (if they have one) the flasher. It would take the bulk of those spotlight and flasher cones away and I could hide it in a theme-appropriate decaying egyptian column.

All that does sound cool.Another mod to be put in the design phase.

I was inspired by ben1981 ‘s black wash but added some “ancient gold” to it as well. I’m terrible at painting so pretty happy with how it turned out.

Currently backlit from an led strip I had mounted behind the original plastic but will be modifying the lighting to go with the “lit from below” effect.

Will also be installing the screw hole plugs but forgot to install them when I painted it so trying to make them match now.

I only have hands for painting walls but it has been raining all weekend so decided to give this a shot. Wife finally kicked me out of the craft room - apparently I wasn’t following the rules. If only all mods had the quality of vireland. Learned from the other posts and made sure to have a bright cloth below to catch the tiny plugs - which I dropped several times

I don't know about the red belt, but aside from that if you're painting it's pretty hard to go wrong with gold/blue or a dark acrylic wash from the pictures people have posted already.

(And yes, the plugs are tiny and easy to lose track of!)

Yes. Going for a nice “layers of stuff” effect to make the “world under glass” richer.
