Beautiful, I assume Lindbergh cabs use classic Sega player 1 and player 2 layouts?

Hi all, what was the latest on this? Did the final product make it into production? Was it just the overlay we’re waiting for? Sorry if I’m being stupid and missed it

Been meaning to update.

Its still overlays.

Long and short, im trying to find a supplier for 0.5mm polished aluminium in small quantity.

I'll do a longer post when I get some time, I'm actually using two of the panels myself in a bare / el-cheapo overlay fashion

Situation as is.

2L16B panels for everyone who requested one were manufactured and are ready to go as shown here download/file.php?id=19686&mode=view. Some have a brushed horizontal grain, some have vertical.

Overlays...
  1. @muddymusic and I started trying reverse printing just black ink onto Lexan and attaching a foil layer. Has potential but really fiddly to get right consistently.
  2. Moved on to front printing polished aluminium. Dead easy to get right but... so far I've not found a source (willing to sell a small quantity in a large enough size) of thin enough polished aluminium sheet (0.5mm) for this to be trialled.
For myself I've bought some carbon fibre effect vinyl wrap and used this temporarily. I'm happy enough with the look and feel of it but as it's flexible it shows the studs at certain viewing angles.

As it stands I'm considering just going with a black+white+greyscale (or black+white+full colour) as in download/file.php?id=19607. Thoughts?

Thanks for the update cools. Your final greyscale design looks great to me. I'd go for one of them if you can't get the metalic look. But I'd rather a slight metalic feel still if it's possible

That's probably what I'll end up doing for them, but I can't help myself playing around with other possibilities for my own use. :awe: The black + white + hex really lets you get away with all sorts of mess in the background.

Renewed vigour. We're experimenting with some different things. Slow going though due to covid.

Small update: mega thanks to Jan for sending me the link, and rancor for jumping on it pronto. I've got an original 2L12B on it's way for not too terrible money.

Short term this means nothing much, but longer term if I find some time + motivation I've an idea of how I can get a near perfect rip of the halftone background image, without resorting to pixelling every dot in a 600dpi file. :lol:
