Quoted from Davi:

You are right, the spacing is not equal

Doesn't bother me at all! This mod is very well executed, transforms the ugly crane cover into a 3D model that is Top Notch. Couldn't be happier with it!

Quoted from Davi:

You are right, the spacing is not equal - even the word 'minor' is too much to describe this "problem".

Sarcasm? Towards a potential customer. Can’t really tell, but I was just pointing out how it looked to me. But I see I get downvoted for pointing out something I saw that didn’t look right, and probably could be fixed easily.

Don’t see feedback or constructive criticism as a reason to be upset. Rather, see it as an opportunity to improve.

No problem for me - and no downvote by me. As I said, I can try to modify it for new cranes. If needed, for shipped cranes I can provide that small insert if it's an issue.
The design is the same since first post, and got a positive feedback from you as well - on first day. That's why an opposite feedback about stripes was strange on day #23. That's it, nothing more. Peace

#54 6 months ago

Done.

Man, I can't wait until I get mine. Maybe another suggestion is to have the yellow slashes on the right side go in the opposite direction so it's more like \\\ ///.

Edit: I attached an image to explain what I'm talking about.

The original design is \\\ \\\, that's why I use this pattern. It doesn't mean I can't or won't create your wish

#57 6 months ago

Oh, yeah, don't take that as me being critical about the piece at all. It was just a thought that I had.

Just an FYI to anybody who is installing this on a prototype JD. The crane arm contains a switch which doesn't seem to exist on the production model.

It may have not made a difference, but since I wasn't sure if my game still used the prototypes "ball on magnet" switch I went ahead and drilled a hole through the top of the crane head to allow the switch to still be triggered. Had to use a larger screw and a spacer to allow some play between the mod plastic and switch arm. So far so good.

Are you really happy with that? If you are not 100% happy, I would create a custom version.
Let me know.

Davi Installed and 100% satisfied - thank you for this amazing mod!

Thanks Davi, but that won't be necessary. This will do just fine.

This is a must have for a Judge Dredd.

Ill echo other folks here and just say the pics don't do it justice. Comparative to commercial mods I would say this meets or far exceeds in design, appearance and ease of use. Superb!

Incredible looking mod! Wish I hadn’t purchased the metal one on eBay (also very nice but not as cool as this one) or I’d be all over this.

#64 3 months ago

Amazing looking mod, looking forward to ordering one but I had a question. The current one in my JD is the original one and it has a magnet at the end of it, so that it picks up the ball, places it into the outlane but yours does NOT have a magnet, correct? I just wanted to make 100% sure. It basically just "pushes" the ball into the outlane? I sometimes have an issue with the ball being picked up and dropped by the current one and it gets "stuck" on the DEADWORLD, so I'm wondering if this mod might also alleviate that issue?

The mod is just the outer part of the crane. The innards remain the same. This mod replaces the plastic shell that comes in the original game. This mod fits over the magnet and arm that sit under the original plastic. Think of it as a plastic replacement.. The mech still remains.

Exactly, thanks for clarification.

Update:
1st version for prototype/sample games is done.
Modifications have been made in the gripper and also in the cylinder part to create space for microswitch and actuator.
I am going to send this for test.

Thanks, Davi. You incorporated the changes seamlessly. Anxious to install and provide feedback. It's such a major improvement vs. the stock plastic.

I received two of these from Peter. Install was fairly straight forward, no issues at all. He did an amazing job on this mod. I've had a few people over (social distancing rules enforced) that have seen it and think it looks fantastic. So much better than that ugly original plastic cover!

This should be a no-brainer for anyone that has a JD.

Thanks again Peter!

I really hope it fits to sample games.

According to the manual, look for violet-brown connection.
