Just me and my Superguns now! :D
You'll be back!!


... probably.

Superguns - I forgot to add that I have a Sigma AV5000
After owning over 30 cabs since I joined this site, I'm sure I will.

Would really like a driving cab project next. Sega cab style , with an LCD, running Rave Racer, in a red/yellow Namco theme.
I played a bit of Rave Racer at Play & really liked it shame the driver cab was too small for me :lol:

Great work on this Paulie, you've really gone to town. It makes really interesting reading. :)

Bit of an update to mine. If we're including non candys then you can stick a couple more on too.

Thanks for the kind words gents :) but without everyone's input this would have been a complete flop, so I should be thanking you :)

Got myself a pair of Dinosaur king cabs to add to the list.

Getting ever so close to the 500 cab mark now :awe:

Yep. Good participation relies on a good organiser. You've done a far better job than I would have. I'd have probably killed the idea through slackness.
