Up to yet its taken me about 35/40 hours, and if you take off the cost of the pc and monitor (which i acquired free from my brothers loft lol) its cost under £200. Alls i have left to do now is properly fix the top banner on, fix the back panel on, decide on what, if any graphics/stickers to apply to the outside, i was thinking just a simle pack man chasing a ghost with a namco sticker underneath, both sides and a tatio sticker on the front panel.

Then decide if i am going to rip out the internals of the pc i am using and put them into the cab, because as of yet im still using the pc in tower form, due to the fact i plan to upgrade to a better pc as this one isn't quite powerful enough to smoothly run the hyperspin software! and unfortunately, im not fully upto speed on how to get all the emulators working within hyperspin. :sad: lol

Nice, it seems a lot of work but it totally worths it by the looks of it! By the way, I always loved Taito's logo :thumbsup:
