Bartop Arcade Plans

Post by Incito » June 26th, 2009, 3:21 pm

The folks at katorlegaz.com are pretty cool. Not only have I found some awesome 3d model (made with Blender) of actual arcade machines like Defender, but they have some sweet plans for various BarTop Arcade builds.

Check them out: http://bartoparcade.katorlegaz.com/

While your at it, check out the 3d Arcade models here: http://www.katorlegaz.com/3d_models/index.php

I have made a PDF of the plans that I will archive just in case this ever disappears.

This will diffently get added to the links page! :thumbsup:

Agree! I am going to make a small one player bartop with the extra 17" LCD I have laying around.

Hey Pete :hello:

Had a look at your photos, nice build man! Have you checked out pocketlucho's youtube channel before, the guy with all the super miniaturised cabs? Those are crazy.

Pete,
I have to say that is one of the best looking bartops I have seen. I am very jealous of that paint job (I can't paint to save my life). You should definitely be proud of that build. Great job :clapping: . Be sure to make your own thread documenting the build.
