Look forward to seeing this kit looks great!

#152 1 year ago

I am in for a set as well.

#153 1 year ago

Why not, designing some standup target stickers. Mine are already wearing, so I know this is going to be a need as I am not buying JJP decal sets each time I need to replace these 8 or so. It will be these 6 and then the two check locks.

Thoughts?

Another similar option. Not going to produce these right away (waiting for the others to come in first) but I think they will be worth it.

Like the one with the map in the background

Roman numerals?

I like the skulls that represent each movie 5 targets and 5 movies.

Hummm.. I could check in to that.

#163 1 year ago

Cant wait to see that lighted window .

#164 1 year ago

Not the best photo but here is the lineage of them.

Only thing that would be wonky is 2x would be movie 1 and 6x movie 5 but at least you get the variety and these same skills are already incorporated elsewhere in the game and art.

#165 1 year ago

Is that the final plastic in the middle between the spinners? Can you make sure there is enough clearance for the spinners? Thanks!

Uh, that's the first prototype. Yes, spinners will spin

#167 1 year ago

Any thoughts on this? I think that's what I'm going with. Gonna be costly to order all 5 of them but I can already see mine are going bad.

I was thinking this for the "PIRATE" standup (to the left of the chest). I don't know what is more generic "Pirate" .. skull and crossbones way overused already and it's a narrow target. This strikes me as too "Jack" but I don't know what else to use.

You’ll get my mum excited with that image!!

Too large for that small spot. Skull and crossbones or pirate hat or parrot? If you say pirate parrot pirate parrot 10 times it’s sort of similar!

#170 1 year ago

Crossed cutlasses or cutlass and flint lock. But I think the parrot would be fun.

#171 1 year ago

How about Davey Jones for the pirate target?

#172 1 year ago
Quoted from Psw757:

Yeah, that could work. The issue I have with the characters is that they are already represented in various locations on the playfield for named shots, so this shot isn't related to a character. I think it has to be something more generic.

Everyone please sit down. Hold on to something. Had an epic delivery today.

Awesome!!! Will they be painted same colour as top bars (plastic)?

Yes, it will blend right in.

Definitely interested!!!

#179 1 year ago

Both me and harry were surprised at how well it fit for a first prototype! Kudos to him for good dimensions for me to work with! Now just need to add the “glass” and the LEDs.

Once painted I think it will look excellent. I’m excited and I haven’t even seen or played POTC haha.

Excellent work. And great measuring Harry. Even covers up the metal bars on the side. Will look very piratey!

#181 1 year ago

Looks good. I'll be in for one, once they are for sale.

#182 1 year ago

Awesome harryhoudini I’d love one if you make them

#183 1 year ago

I’m in too!

#184 1 year ago

Between this thread and the operational chest thread I will be adding even more to my pirates!

Wasn't entirely happy with the color reproduction on the first sticker. I'm talking with the printer and I suggested they reprint it with the updated one here. If they do I'll offer both options for the same price so you can see them in person and pick.

First option
DoorFinal (resized).jpg

Updated.. I did a bit more detail work on this one and tried to make the background match the ship color a bit more. Then again, I wonder why a black ship would have brown colored doors, but it also has brown colored wood planking, so who knows.

#187 1 year ago

Oh and two more of the stickers are on the way with the last 3 being produced right now. Should have them all within a week or so.

All tests of the stand-up filler piece seem great. I don't even think there are any adjustments needed. I've played with it on for several days. I am going to test lighting and some sort of window material next, then paint. I'll talk with geteos on production time and such, but we should be ready to start rolling this out. Once we figure out costs and I get a painted prototype I'll post the store so everyone can start ordering.

The other door could look good. I must admit the first door looked a bit lost on the spinner. Thank you for all the effort you have put in this Harry. Great attention for detail.

#189 1 year ago

Some lighting tests. Anyone have suggestions for lighting colors and such? I am fairly happy with this flickering LED. I think it will be pretty plug and play.

https://photos.app.goo.gl/2yKedgfr9JY1ZVJa6

Right now that is some fancy paper in place of a window. Going to work on some more translucent options, need to hit up the crafts store.

#190 1 year ago

Painting test, down and dirty with a brush. Just wanted to see how the brown base worked with the top colors and it's actually a really good match. Will look better airbrushed and cleared.

0617191759 (resized).jpg
#191 1 year ago

I think the light is great. I was thinking a yellowish light to imitate lantern light. The flicker is spot on. Rather than the paper is some really whorlly semi translucent plastic viable to look like old glass. Could be really difficult to do. Paper may be the best option.

I notice the light is from the top so can easily attach to the bolts up the top. Good one.

Lastly paint looks great.

#192 1 year ago

Ya, flickering LED is a great gem.. used them on my WOZ. I am going to test some options on the paper, going to laminate or spray it with clear, etc. I will still look for some other options. I definitely think some old glass (sort of like the lanterns on the ship) would look cool. I asked geteos about printing the glass.

#193 1 year ago

It’s trivky because you don’t want it to be too see through or you see the posts. Then again could something be stuck to the posts to make them look piratey or dress the posts up with a sleeve to look like wood. You could put signs on them. OR have a printed room art that sits in front of the posts so it looks like a cabin!! The flickering light would light up said cabin.

#194 1 year ago

There really isn't all that much room there. I need to test it with the light on the machine because I am fairly sure you'll see some shadows. But I think the "window" with the flickering light is what I am going to send out and people can choose to do what they want. Just need to decide on what the window material is going to be. I am trying to have it more clear/dark than white.

I have some plastic here for the galaxy starmap mod I am doing so I think I'll cut a piece of that and do some spray paint testing. Might be able to create something.

You’re right about before the posts. But a bit of card with printed cabin behind the posts but in front of the wires will be something easy I can add or any pinsider can add. This will hide the wires. The posts will just look like supports inside the cabin. Guess it all depends how transparent your glass is.

Yup.. and ideally it will be replaceable so you can add anything you want there.

Could put a pirate in their undies! Or 2 pirates..... ahem!

Here is a plastic test I did. Some spray paint and a piece of plastic. I think this could work well, I need to see if I have some blue in the shop but a combination of blue, black and gold probably makes a nice effect. This test is some gold on one part and then I flip it around and it's bronze with red sparkle mixed in.
