Ok guys. As you know I have been working for over a year on Indiana Jones mods. To make it look better as I am thinking, and also to change the overall design. I'm working right now on the production of the idol ruins and the second run for the ramp mod. If you didn’t see them you must check it them out! I have decided to make few more mods -- like mini playfield rails who will blow your mind and I will post them next. I'm working on the back bridge and also a few more surprises that will shock you but I will not speak anything about that right now to prevent people from copying my ideas! I will reveal them only when they are ready for photos. The other good news is that I am working right now 90% just for pinball mods and going to make tons of things for other games, not just for ij.

So I have decided to make my own versions of apron. I was thinking on this idea a lot and how to make it right! I found a great solution, my own idea and its works well! Its like the backboard on the playfield and I really like it. its not looking good right now its just prototype and just a sculpt to show you my idea. The next version with the colors going to be awesome. The price will be 215-300$ depends on how many orders I will get… I'm still thinking of how to paint it maybe the scarab in gold or also to make it like a stone and I will be happy to know how you think I should paint it . check this post for more updates and again its not the final model.

THIS APRON COVER IDEA IS A PATENT PENDING ITEM FOR ALL OF THE MACHINES!

****PLEASE DON'T COPY MY IDEA****

Feel free to give me some tips and tell me what you think. Please don’t be rude if you want to be rude you can go to other forums. Thanks

***UPDATE**** CHECK POST #31

****DID YOU SAW SOMETHING LIKE THAT BEFORE LIKE A 3D COVER FOR APRONS? NO! SO PLEASE DON'T COPY MY IDEA! ITS A PATENT PENDING!****

Looking Great.
No apron cards needed.

This is going to be awesome!

THANK YOU GUYS!!!!

Quoted from Ericpinballfan:

the bricks area will be like that but do you think i should paint the scarab also as like stones (custom color)? if yes i will add texture for the scarab but i can also paint the scarab in gold or any other color.
and also green moss on the bricks?

#9 3 months ago

I think the scarab should stand out with a green or black body and arms. Just thinking out loud.

#10 3 months ago

I'm not particularly artistic so I'm incredibly thankful folks like you exist. Sign me up for one!

#11 3 months ago

Looks awesome, but when are you going to remake the actual playfield to get rid of all the orange and yellow, so it matches all your mods?

#12 3 months ago

The more I look at it the more I like it. Count me in Lior.

I would be interested to see what you could do with your custom colored background and then color the scarab in with metallic colors -- blues, greens, reds, golds -- similar to the scarab in the game but with more of your creativity. I do not know how the end product would look but I am sure it will be a winner however you do it!

#13 3 months ago

Looks awesome! Fits the pin perfectly...I'd order one.

#14 3 months ago

i really want to know how many people will be interesting in it so i can know what is the price and to start sculpt the final version. you can send me a pm or to write here and i will do a list without any payments for now....

i think its will come in 1 color (custom color) and the scarab in 4 colors you can choose. but i can paint it as people wants

ok so i made few changes and im going to cast it and to make 5-10 options of colors
im also want to try to make like a few premium versions of metallic colors and real gold color andddd im also want to try to make a chameleon color. i will post photo of this color here. but the metallic colors and the gold will be just for the scarab. the other design will be like real stones and i will also make few versions of that and i will also make a pf version to match the pf perfect!

here is few photos also with the glass and the bar i really like how is looks

thank you for you're amazing words and support

#22 3 months ago

i will post photos this weekend but one pinsider told me why im not doing copyrights for my mods (ideas)? and i ask someone in this copyright business and he told me i can make it with low cost and he help me. so im very happy to tell you this apron idea (for all of the machines) ITS A PATENT PENDING ITEM!!!! like pin stadium so no one can copy or make it for other machine also. my idea is not the apron is it how its cover the apron and how you install it. its like 3d decal without glue!
im also going to do another 2 patent pending for my other ideas i didnt reveal yet.
the weather here is still cold and rainy. thats why things going slow....

#28 40 days ago

ok guys as i promise the apron is ready!!!!
its still clay and i need to do the final touches and adjustments and to fix few things but its will go to casting this week.
i also made a sketch of painted version and i decide to make 2 versions. one is regular paint and the other version is a metallic scarab and its looks AMAZING (you can send me a pm and i will send you a photos of the test paint)

production will start in 8-16 days. and its will be shipped with my other mods if you want to save shipping cost.
now im working on the final touches on the production of the mini pf and its will be ready in the same time.
the apron is very complicated and its not only a mold and sculpt and thats why its takes time

i will paint the apron and i will post all options and photos in next weekend or next week

BTW the mask was looking weird in the plunger area so i decide to change it

thank you guys

as you know i am a perfectionist and if 1 wing is 5mm on the right and 5.1mm on the lefts side for me its ugly! i know its can take forever but this is me
so i made a silicone mold and the first cast and i figure few things thats i dont like. few wings not matching the wings on the left and also the scarab needs to be more smooth. so im casting clay right now and doing few touches and fixing it soon. clay sculpting is more complicated from 3d printing in this work... so it must be 1000% perfect! im going to paint the one i cast just to show you how its going to look with colors but im going to paint 4 versions of the bricks and i will decide which one looks the best! as i said im making also 1 version of metallic scarab and the good new it is the same RAL color number from the pf colors and the metallic colors made special for me and its not only a color its with activator to make it metallic. so metallic colors will cost little more extra. right now
im after a injury in my teeth and cant do hard work for few days. i will try to paint it asap so check this and other threads soon
you can send me a pm to get more photos of the scarab and more info
pasted_image (resized).png

#30 32 days ago

Now that is cool. I want one.

#31 31 days ago

so i decide to paint the prototype and its looks great but the wings are not smooth and few details are missing and its really not symmetric and its can make me crazy so i must fix it.

i paint it with the custom color (light brown) and toke photos with the old version of the idol in custom color and the ramp in custom color
i will start to take photos from now so if you want end me a pm. but im taking money only when its ready. price will be 285$ for not metallic and 315$ for metallic. its not metallic paint that you buy in store. its special metallic paint with activator and its same RAL from the colors in the game.

for now im working on mini pf and idol production right now and will be back to the apron next week so i will post photos of the final version soon.

i can paint the apron in any color you want. if you dont have any of my other mods i can paint it in sand color or orange like my iron maiden apron.

the body of the scarab is green who change colors depends of how you look on it (the angle)

Damnit Lior!
They both look awesome.
Love the spears at shooter lane.

#34 31 days ago

Great job Lior. You do amazing work!

#35 31 days ago

Looks awesome man!! Just a suggestion, what about from top to bottom, blue, red, orange? Orange being the largest section and orange is a huge color in IJ.

#36 31 days ago

HI Lior.....Love what you are doing...what do you think of aging the wings.....

Red, orange , yellow are the color of aprons now with decals.
This gets hard, so many colors.
The green body makes this, that's a place holder for sure Lior.

thank you! i did orange and yellow at the beginning ant it was to much. i didnt like it and most of the scarabs that i saw are blue red green also in the lost plastic and on the sling shot and i made it to match it. i sent you in pm photoshop version in orange so you can see how bad its looks. i have no problem to paint it as you want im making also the sling shot in 3d and metallic soon so its will match that. if youw ant to match it more to the orange in the playfield i will maybe do a sand version like my iron maiden apron

Quoted from OLDPINGUY:

HI Lior.....Love what you are doing...what do you think of aging the wings.....

thank you! very long time....
i was planing to do it but metallic clors needs 12 hours to dry before applying another paint on them. so i made it today. and thats how its looks.
i have no problem to do it if someone wants. i think its very cool and makes the scarab blend on the apron better. but if someone wants the scarab to pop out and to be more shiny i will not do it. but its up to you im open for any paint instruction from my buyers i can also make it looks more broken and more old.

thank you
its metallic but with paint on it so its makes it not shiny in few areas.
i will make a version of not metallic and also orange when i have the final model
BTW the 2 photos that i post are with flash light

#41 30 days ago

They look awesome. I personally would want more green in all of them as in the vines growing on everything.

#42 30 days ago
Quoted from zr11990:

I was assuming vines and such would get tje brown and green touches like the ruins and ramp cover.
Lior is just on scarab. More to come.
Green scarab body with metallic paint for the win.

#43 30 days ago

Each of Lior's mods compliment each other -- one looks nice by itself but seeing them all together in the prototype picture takes the appeal up another level for me. Looking forward to the POA rails when they are added in.

the scarab in the photos are green. there is another option for green body but i didnt like it.
next version will be with more green. im trying to make it more realistic as i can.
