Sorry to hear your local power problems. We used to lose power several times each winter. Then the city paid a tree company to trim all the trees back around the powerlines. It worked. I had bought a generator the year before and it has now sat for 4 years. I did use the shut off and run out the gas in the carb. I added Fuel Restore to the tank, but will need to drain tank before next start. I have been told that I should use gas from a local Marina or airport that does not have that environmental ethanol crap in it. Best of luck on your tree trimming, electricity, sanding and polishing.

Here are 2 pfs with their final coats. So in 2-3 weeks they will get sanded and polished and cleaned.
The TAFG is a repro, can you tell me whats different about it?

Other than one of the many version of green shades, is it the lack of DP logo?

[quoted image]

well that is true, but being a repro IT SHOULD NOT HAVE A DP LOGO. if mirco is listening. nope there is something else. something I am quite p[roud of bein sneaky! (john tuturro in little nicky or one of adam sandlers movies)

#1408 4 days ago

It was made by cpr, I am not sure if they still have pics but you will quickly notice

#1409 4 days ago

It has the barcode on it. CPRs didn’t have the barcode. Did you already add it in, Ron?

Quoted from kruzman:

I now have a NOS space shuttle pf in stock. it has a little planking that will be fixed by clearing.
here is something I didnt know they did 2 runs of space shuttle first in 12/84 production of 7000
then in 2/85 another 620
But my pf is dated 4/1987.
Maybe they did another run to go with space station in 12/87
I have found pfs are usually dated up to 6 months before production of the game was recorded.
does anyone know if there is a story behind this?
I will take pics tomorrow when the sun is up. the inserts are very nice and its drilled and dimpled, so I have no idea whats up with this pf

That may correlate with some shuttles having hot dog inserts versus circle inserts. I think I read on pinside that they were out of hot dogs and used circles instead but not positive.

Hum. I dont see any differences.thank you for posting that. The date is april 27 1987. It has another date on it, but no manufacture stamp on the edges. This is where I wish Gene cunningham was still alive. He would know exactly what this pf is. The reason I bought it was because of the date on it, I paid high retail

I have never owned a space shuttle game, because they are always so dam worn. I have had 3 space stations, and I love that game and think it would be so cool to have them side by side! Anyone out there have them both?

#1418 4 days ago

I notice mine has a 1 in hole in the white (upper center pf) to the right of the roll over switches USA

You should come down and play them.
Get some 9-Ball in too.

Thats beautiful!!! and 9 ball. wow. Once I get the newish car I would like to stop by. How far off of the 94 are you?

Which reminds me. I am not going to expo, unless I do get a new vehicle, but that is doubtful. since I live 2 miles off the 94 which is the main highway between chicago and detroit and you want to get a pf dropped off here, I would think it would be super easy to find someone who is driving right past my house. I can meet them at the exit 85 mcdonalds. We can save on some shipping costs. I think we could network and make that happen pretty darn easy, so just let me know. I am all about car pooling and saving fuel.
The 131 is only 20 miles from me, so I can meet someone over there also. That way if we find someone who lives in Grand rapids area, they can bring the pf, and I will meet them off of one of the kalamazoo exits.

Just an idea

In town, just 5 min off exit 27.
That's the Space Shuttle that I got from Chris. The one that had most of the center of the playfield painted black to make the worn area look better. It looks really goood with a Hardtop on it. Not Kruzman playfield good, but way better than black cover up paint.
