I would love a set for JD myself with the following artwork.

#152 3 years ago
Quoted from BENETNATH:

Hi,
would be SOOO great to get the judge dredd drop target, with each letter on it.
You could even inspire from the often seen decals.
Center target is also more thick than the other one.
I can provide some guidance on dimensions and so on, as i own one.
would be a really nice mod, as JD is a bit dark at the drop target place.

Doing each individual target artwork would be VERY time-consuming. I won't be tackling that for a while. Sorry.

Any update on the Metallica ones and how to install?

Here are a couple versions I've done for Metallica...

You could do just the shield for all five of them. It says judge on the playfield correct?

Or how about engrave the shield and then use die cut vinyl for the letters like he did with the Metallica cross.

I decided to abandon the vinyl decal. I don't think it will be durable enough.

I'll see what I can do for a shield though.

so........ can we order one for WoZ or are you still drafting one up?

#161 3 years ago
Quoted from dsuperbee:

Any plans to do this for a standard drop target? Would love this for the single WW target. I think it would look good!

WW would be great too! Certainly brighten up that area a bit.

#162 3 years ago
Quoted from lurch:

WOZ is done for the moment....as far as the drop targets go.

I have to look into lighting the target though. My guess is the single drop target assembly is identical to the Williams drop target assembly. The only differences being that it requires a 12 volt lamp, and tying it into the machine for power will be different that what is needed for the Williams games.

I'll be working on this style of drop target in the future.

Yup, i just noticed that the comet LED's for this are 6.3V. That said a resistor in-line with the alligator clips should be able to fix that issue.

Also, where to connect could be an issue as well. I will have to crawl under my playfield when i get home and take a look.

I'm planning on buying a few different color/style 12 volt LEDs from Comet to experiment with.

I'll try to look at the assembly and see what can be done about mounting a 555 style socket in the next few days.

#166 3 years ago

Hi Tim,

As we are working through the changes that you know, I think we can do the new 2 headed in 12V, with a small minimum.....

#167 3 years ago

give me a call Art

#168 3 years ago

Seems perfect
Any plan to release them in a kit?
What would be the price for the complete kit with lights?

Great work.

I'm not sure, just yet if I can do the kit. The reason being...I'd have to come up w/ a lighting solution for a 5 bank drop target assembly, (I already have a Williams 3-bank version designed that works VERY well). I don't have access to a JD machine. If the 5 bank drop target assembly is the same as the 5-bank used in BadCats...no problem. I have a BadCats I can use for design/testing.

PM me your email, i send you details and pics and reply all questions about feasibility

Now with all your spare time( wishful thinking) , if you made TRON drops for my LE, think I'd die a happy man......

How long would the wires for each led have to be?

Here's another version for AFM or RFM....

I like the judge design. I've been talking up this mod to a bunch of people. It is a great idea and looks awesome.

I have software now that converts images to vector files.

#183 3 years ago

tim,
is transparent clear the only thing that allow the light to shine up and light up the cuts? It's got me wondering how a transparent grey or black material for the stand up would be able to show the light? (or for that matter, some of the fluorescent colors like red, green and blue might be a great choice for the stand up target if they are available

#184 3 years ago

I think the materials need to be somewhat clear in order for the light to travel through the material. I chose polycarbonate because of the material strength. The clear polycarbonate, once machined, is no longer "clear". It has a slight "milky" color.

As for fluorescent colors...that material is acrylic. It's way too brittle for this application. The drop target would probably break with the first ball strike.

#186 3 years ago

That looks great!

What type of color changing lamp are you using?

#187 3 years ago

Comet dual flex rgb! They are fragile but awesome looking.

#188 3 years ago

I'll have to talk to Art soon about those LEDs.

#189 3 years ago
Quoted from angryjeep:

Yeah those long wire ones are real fragile and I don't get why they have the 2 barbs on each one. They really get in the way.

#190 3 years ago

Working on a better version.....Factory that makes them, also does pinballcenter, pinball heaven, and use to make for Stern....Difficult to get a factory to change, Paul.

Even when its a better way.

Oh I know that Art and it's a big extra expense for you too.

#192 3 years ago

Got my target for afm. Looks great. But stupid question, where do I connect the alligator clips. 1 & 2 (Not three) in this photo?

20160514_114423_(resized).jpg

#193 3 years ago

The lit target mod was designed to tie into a GI lamp.

For a controlled lamp, my guess would be #1 & #2 (don't quote me on this).

#1, for sure...if 1 & 2 don't work, try 1 & 3.

#194 3 years ago

I like the way these look!! Is it possible to manufacture a early Bally solid state target?

I might attempt it at some point in time. Those old Bally targets won't be easy.

#196 3 years ago

Okay... Gi makes sense, and a lot easier. Thank you.

#197 3 years ago

What are people using for JM?

#198 3 years ago
Quoted from SealClubber:

I don't have any ideas for JM.

Any suggestions on clip art to use?

#199 3 years ago

There's so many different designs, do you have a site / page with all the different options?

#200 3 years ago

A bunch of zeros and 1s maybe?
