Had a water damaged Hulk that was losing all of the paint on the sides. So I decided to paint it. Didn't have room for a spray booth, so I decided to hand paint it. Took about 40 to 50 hours but I think it looks pretty good considering where it started. Also LED'd the playfield and put purple and green star posts with matching color Titan rings. Let me know what you guys think.

Looks amazing. Great job. I have a Gottlieb Spider-Man and the Hulk and the Spider-Man could use a similar re-paint. Did you do it all free hand with a brush or mask it and air brush?

I was never a fan of the pinkish color and really like how you switched it to the purple. Looks so much better. Congrats on a nice job.

Excellent work!
There are no rules as to how to do it. What matters is that you did it and another game is ready for another 40 years.

I would love to own this title at some point, it is on "my list"

Beautiful. Still would like to collect this game.

Thanks for all the compliments. Took a lot of time and effort to keep going but I am really happy with the results. zimzam I ended up doing freehand on all of it. By the time I was done it took I got pretty confident and was able to move faster but it was still more of an effort than I thought it would be, but well worth it.

grizlyrig Yeah I never really liked the pinkish purple they used either, so I went with the purple from the comic books I remembered and it came close to the purple in the rocks from the backglass so I went with it. Very happy with the results. Thanks for the compliment.

What type of lights did you use in the backbox? Have been toying with warm light / sunlight Leds from Comet for entire backbox or using purple / green for Hulk. Any help is appreciated.

I think it actually looks BETTER than the original!

As a side note, I like the top-down pic where it looks like you are falling down on the pin. It reminds me of a falling dream...except going towards a pinball would be 1000x better than a street or whatever.

All warm frosted in the bg... and very few of them. I probably had maybe half of the bulb sockets empty. Sorry for the late response I'm not on here much.
