One of the longest games I have owned! 18 years, I think.

For about 10 years it was stored, and I only opened and shopped earlier in the year.

Gosh this game is so damn good! I wish I could use original Who music, but I am OK.
When finished, the ramps flowed like a NIB!

It hasnt lost its luster of play, and is always a joy....every game ends in a smile!

Id stick my neck out to say, if you are looking for a killer game that seems to be in the 2-3K range...
this ones a must!

Redid the lights, of course, and Ill be adding new 6.3V lighting affects to the plane in the near future....
I have some cool ideas with our new products, like Post lights shining down from the bottom of the plane
to light or flash with inserts.....

Anyway, a Few pics too...one day Ill be a better photographer! Still, id like to Play TimeBandits! Get er Done!

Quoted from shimoda:

If you had a kit for this Art I would buy it!

The whole game was done with Twin 2835 Frosted in Sunlight, GI and Back Box,
All inserts were color matched with the same.

There are two issues with Kits.

One is How do I know my taste is the same as someone else?
Second is the cost....People pay for the instructions, and the time to pick.
I am hoping most people dont need an instruction sheet that says put Red bulb under Red insert, Green under Green,
Yellow under Yellow....Thats pretty easy.

I see that Kits would run from say $190-$240, and those available are only with 1 SMD. Some kits promote the need for non ghosting.
I personally didnt need any non ghosting bulbs.

If one picks up 100 Wedge Twin 2835 Frosted for $59, and 50 44/47 same for $32.50, then the whole game could be done
even with flashers for around $100 with Free shipping,
If one counts their inserts and lifts the play field, taking about 10 minutes of notes, one could create a pretty good list, and flashers.
That would run around $115 tops.
I just have a hard time asking an extra $100 for the info and hand counting,

Yet, I respect that some want this, and there are the great people at CT and PBB, that have kits to accomplish this but in 1 SMD 5050.

Just not my first choice of bulb, but great kits anyway, for those needing LEDs that way......All good!
