    This is amazing! At least on video it looks so good, pretty close to the real thing! And you get to change the table whenever you want :)

    Would love to do something like this for someone. I did an arcade controller in a university lectern last year and it made me want to do a scratch build

    Missed this first time around, what an epic project and looks fantastic.

    Roughly what sort of cost would it be to make something similar please?

    Sorry for the late reply, I haven’t been around for a while.

    I think the total build cost was like £800-£1000

    The biggest cost however was the man hours involved... I couldn’t even begin to total up what I have done. But it was worth it, half the fun is the building and creating! :)

    Thanks man :)


    I’ve done a few minor upgrades this year to it, changed the screen to the acer predator IPS 1440 165hz and paired with a gtx 1060.
    Upgraded audio
    Added rgb
    Had a laser cut stainless steel speaker panel made.

    Thing is still awesome and gets loads of play!

    This is such a good idea. I used to love playing pinball games on my Amiga in the 90s. You're build took that to a whole new level :)
