Very different genres, but both are a must.

Silence of the Lambs is epic. The key antagonist is a middle aged single man who lives alone in a house with a creepy basement and has an unusual hobby... Probably fits the profile for a lot of pinheads on this site!!

Wow!
Looks great!
Is that a ball lock mech behind the spinning disc?

Sorry, the disc doesn't spin.
I just put the image there to show where the roulette wheel is going to be drawn on the table.
Behind the target wall there is a magnet that catches the ball and throws it up into the hole/subway.

This looks better and better each time I see it!

Thanks Joel!

Busy birthday weekend, so not much done on NBX.
Working on this as an idea for ball save/shoot again.

Mmm...maybe one of the kids holding up an oversized Christmas tree bulb?

Looks great, BTW.

Just wanted to add myself to the list of people following and praising this project.
This is such an inspiring thread for anyone who wants to design pinball.
Its sparked off more than a few extra ideas for me.
I love the film and I know I'm gonna love the pinball version even more!
Thank you for sharing the process with us.

looking good, are the tabs on the ramp to hold a base?
what thickness SS are you going for?

Quoted from swinks:

Yes, the tabs are for the base (weld points) and for support posts. Zoom in on the left ramp1 drawing to see the ramp 'floors'
I'm thinking 1/16 or maybe 1/18 stainless.

#625 3 months ago

I'm thinking 1/16 or maybe 1/18 stainless.

Don't make the stainless thinner than Original.
It will deform quickly.

great job, keep it coming.

#626 3 months ago

You may have mentioned it, but how are you getting the stainless ramps cut, or are you doing it yourself?

There are quite a few places that can supply the steel and cut it here in London.

Test plot comes out to proper scale!

Quoted from T-800:

If you end up doing direct print I would caution against clear coating the playfield first. I'm no expert by any means, but I would worry about the adhesion of the paint to a smooth clear coat finish as opposed to a slightly textured wood surface or primed surface.

On STMU; I clearcoated first with several layers of 2part auto clear; sanded flat for the direct UV printing. That way the paint had a flat surface to adhere to.
IIRC; I left the auto clear wetsanded with 500 or 800 grit so the uv paint would stick.
They printed white layer; then a color layer directly on the PF.

Super impressed Mark. Hearing about it last night at Carmel in Allentown was good, seekng the pics and video was even better. Like others have said, "get 'er done". That's why I love pinball shows and expos. I learn a lot about pinball that I never knew was out there. Great to meet you and the rest of the 'London Gang' that I never met before. I'll be watching your progress on this project. Stef.

Bug silhouettes and snowflake multipliers

Quoted from MarkInc:

Bug silhouettes and snowflake multipliers

Might be cool to make the inserts with the bug silhouettes appear blank and have the bugs on the inside of the insert so when lit, they "appear" as silhouettes on the top side as the light shines through.

Looking good. Trying to understand that left side. Does the outlane drain you under the apron or is there some sort of lock down there?

It's a lock/kickback similar to Judge Dredd. It can launch across to the soup VUK or into the shooter lane to set up the shot multipliers.

I wonder what a finished pf would go for. I'd light it up and hang it on the wall.
