Well it is here, took a rental van where rental vans probably should not go, the seller was up a very very steep dirt track in the hills north of Melbourne. Had smoke coming from the back wheels at one stage.

Cleared out the mass of cobwebs and fixed the loudly hissing PSU and it is a runner. Need to restore the gun as that is very battered and the recoil mech is pretty clagged up with grease tho it does run.



Unusual in that the monitor faces upwards and is reflected towards the player with a mirror, which gives the cabinet visually more depth than it actually has. This is through the back door, the inside of the coin mechs are in the distance.



No signs this ever had side art, a lot of Australian cabinets didn't, lazy local cab makers :(

DAMN!!! That gun's seem some action .... is the rust a 'bonus feature' of this machine? :)

Nice machine though, and a great game too.

It has had a hard life, it is just paint that has flaked off and allowed the rust to creep along breaking more and more off. It should be a very quick fix, sand back to bare metal, prime and then repaint. The gun dissasembles in a number of fairly simple to paint parts so am gonna give it a go this week I think. Then there is also the powder coat option but that might be $$$. Need to get some replacement handle grips for it too as the ones on this are cracked and held on with duct tape. Other than that the machine is in amazing condition, I would give it an 8 out of 10 and to get it up to a 10 isnt too much work.
