Love the Bald Eagle on the WhiteWater apron Bill!!! Show's what America and commerce is about! Nice original design!

I like the shadow apron. I don't know how well it's going to play. WIth all that black, only 50% of the playfield will be exposed. Tommy mode all the time. I think shadow is hard enough even when you can see the flippers.

Still needs some work but it's getting there.

I would darken the water a bit and also keep the shooter area visible (looks like it is covered right now) so I can see how far back I pulled the plunger.

Here's a sneak peak of my BOP cabinet head decal. Still needs some minor work but getting there. The originals are hideous!

The water needs to match the river in the middle to create the illusion of depth. We are still working on matching colours for this. The top corners of the magnet will be electric blue to match the darker blue. I left out the final layer which has the shooter notch cut out and some other small additions. Once we have colours sorted out i'll post the final version.

matching colors is damn near impossible. So many of the Wh20's I restore all have different shades of blue. I have 6 different Wh20 blues mixed and still have to adjust them for each field I get in.

I've been running into the same issue. My pf is new in Wh20; I hope the colours are close to the originals.

Yea, forgot about that. DE aprons are plastic.

For plastic aprons, slap a strong magnet or two on the underside of the apron to hold these in place.

Did I miss something? TSPP is linked to this but I didn't see any mention of an apron magnet for it...

#172 4 years ago

I vote for no good gofers!!

#173 4 years ago

I wish the cab decals were easier to install , those look awesome!

#174 4 years ago

This product, and the artwork is extraordinary. I think it would look equally good on games that aren't "top tier A-listers," which widens the appeal for sure.

#175 4 years ago

Please message me when AFM apron magnets are available for purchase.

#176 4 years ago

Yeah this looks amazing. My IJ either needs new apron decals or this. I've decided to hold out for this (hopefully). Please tell me that WMS IJ is in your future plans.

I know it would be much more expensive but having layers to give a 3D look would be boss.

Hello? Is there a TSPP magnet coming?

We haven't planned on one but it's possible.

Way cool. But aren't the side rails gonna chop off part of her headdress "glow". I'd like a side decal just for wall art. Would you do that? How do you think the other side is going to translate? Oh and I like the stars and lens flair on the black background of the bb decals.

Also, isn't part of her missing on the bottom of the bb picture and the little blue triangle to the left between her upper and lower arm?

Also there are no stars on the sides of her headdress and below her ears.

Sorry to be such a nitpicker.

Very valid point about the side rails. Does BoP use sys11 side rails or Wpc?

You are.....damn dude!!

The artist doing these is GOLDEN

#188 4 years ago

I'll have to adjust the artwork to compensate for the rails. I've changed her heart to glow red.

System 11

#190 4 years ago

Great idea, and some awesome designs/talent. Hope you can bring these to market soon! I'd like to buy a few of the Whitewater ones.

#192 4 years ago

When the WH2O magent is ready, I'm completely in on that. Nice work!

In my opinion Popeye would be a great candidate for this. It's literally completely bare blue painted metal. It looks really barren. Yes the prow of the boat is nice, but it's sitting in a massive expanse of single tone blue paint rather than the sea. A stylised sea and perhaps a couple of thematic characters floating in it would make it seem so much less empty, especially if some custom apron cards were made to match. I can't think of another modern machine that looks so empty here and would benefit more.

Funhouse would be another. That now out of production apron mod that integrated the art and the 'tickets' (apron cards) looked great. Something similar would fill a gap.

Truck Stop.....Addams......Gilligan's Island Please. Please let me know when Fish Tales is available.

These magnets cover the apron cards area I believe. They are one flat smooth piece.

In the case of FH tickets, it could just be an illustration. Point taken however.

#197 4 years ago

Agreed. Popeye would be good!

Sent a PM to the Op about buying one for BOP, but haven't heard back.

#199 4 years ago

So Ninjaboot, are you starting sales yet?
If so, put me down for a shadow!

#200 4 years ago

I'm working on it guys. I'm still waiting on samples and licensing. I'll update once I get the samples. Sorry for the delay.
