The CNC file is ready but will be tweaked for alignment when the playfield arrives. The Inkscape files from Jr-007 also arrived and, after some trickery, were successfully ported to Illustrator and laid out over the CNC file. There is a significant amount of gradient mesh work to be done to make this look like the original.
Spoke to copyright owner. Everything will come together.

Backglass too? I could give it a try. I have only done a few titles. They have their own problems, but the graphics team needs work while I am cutting wood.

Fantastic

Quoted from Zukram:

How is the quality of the brgresto glass ?

It definitely looks good in my opinion. I don't think it transmits light as well as the original but I think I've heard that of most bgresto backglasses.

Quoted from gdonovan:

I have discussed scanning mine in and having Coos make one.

The great news just keeps on coming. Oh how I hope this is true.

agreed, definitely a great option if your original is busted. They are never quite as good as the original. I ended up selling my CPR Barracora when i put it next to my 7/10 original... different for everyone i guess?

That is a GOOD news!

They are better than nothing.

I'm not sure of BGresto's process, but I feel the film with the image is too thick & dark to allow enough light through it. I had to add a ton of additional LED strips to my QS repro just to make it look better. I won't even mention the lack of communication throughout the process.

Coos process is superior IMO. Lets light pass through, the colors are vibrant & the mirroring is fricking gorgeous. And a quick turnaround. If he decides to commit to making AS, then that's the way to go.

Oh I have definitely been chatting with Coos, I have purchased 5 of his films now and they are superb.

As soon as I can get caught up on my house projects I'll work on scanning it in but be aware it needs some help as well due to delamination.

I am in for one. Will find a machine later.

I swear the makers of predator must have seen this artwork before making their movie.

The sample playfield arrived, so I placed an alignment film on it. The alignment shows that the scan was stretched lengthwise, thus the alignment gets further out of tolerance from top to bottom. It is possible that the printer that printed the alignment was inaccurate. I will measure and adjust. It takes several measurements and adjustments before the printed alignment matches the playfield within tolerances and it has to be bang on prior to being ready to cut first wood.

Count me in for a playfield and hopefully a back glass!

Very interesting seeing your development process! That reference playfield looks pretty nice. Big thanks to MikeS helping you out with this.

Are you able to reproduce plastics as well? Just curious

I am planning to make plastics for these as well.
I will prep the files to make the plastics and discuss with Steve Young.

Yeah man. Pretty sure every owner in this thread will take a PF & a plastics set. You picked the right title to produce.
