I was going to build a homebrew-esque project based on Top Gun out of either an F-14 or Goldwings fully populated playfield. I have both, and a cabinet to go with it(not a match to either, but it is not a project to build original anyway).
The idea was to either use an APC or Lisy MPU(respectively), or build a harness to adapt the F-14 to a cobrapin, and then jump right into building a Mission Pinball Framework project for it. I wanted to do it to show how fast you can realistically take a populated playfield to a flipping game with new rules.
But, that is a ways out. I've got a more intensive homebrew to finish in the next 2 months, and some shop work that I have to do on my other pins that has fallen off the radar. So, I'm looking for someone(preferably in NorCal) who wants to jump on such a project. It will be relatively cheap, and I'm available to help get you started.
I'm not looking to part things out, as I'd rather leave it in storage for a rainy day. So, if that sounds fun, hit me up.
EDIT: it's entirely possible that you could get this done in time for Golden State. It would be awesome to have someone else join us in the homebrew section!
