I have Francos marquee holders on my cabs, maybe they're not 100% as the originals or maybe he who measured for you made an error? Francos Marquee holder narrows at the top like your marquees but not as much..
Width wise they're good at the bottom.. I can measure the angle if you like?

I've added some RGB LED strips to the back of my cabs. You can't really take a picture of the effect but I like it. :)

Edit - backlit would be cool.

Angle was hard to measure.. if you made the top of your marquees 420 mm wide you'd be spot on.
That would give you a border of aprox 4mm round the marquee like i have at the bottom in my pics.

Have MP'd Franco to find out if his repro holder is 1:1 with the original. If it is, I'll have to rework the NAC template as while I've had no complaints, looking at your pics it's not the neat fit I though it was. As I said, all NAC marquees I've done to date were based on the specifications I was given from the first person to ask for them. I assumed the measurements were an accurate profile of the holder and therefore the angled edge on the marquees would match that of the holder.

Presuming your holder doesn't differ from the original, if you're not happy with your marquees then I'll do a corrected batch for you. :thumbup:

It does not bother me per say but they would be even more awesome if they'd fit 100%.
I'm not one that complains about small stuff like this so I'll leave it up to you to decide. :)

Original at the top, my template at the bottom:

One on top of the other:

Sorry for the bad photos, it's still pretty dark here.

There's easily less than 0.5mm difference all the way round. You had me doubting myself for a minute there! :lol:

Sounds like you were given some duff dimensions dude. I'll go take some accurate ones for you now.

Ok, with Franco's kind help I'm now here;

The green area is the piece to be "added". I'll see if I can wrangle some reprints out of the printer, but it might be tricky as the artwork has changed... :shifty:

Early August, but I have some marquee stock to sell off first when I get the time to go through it. Was just bumping the thread to beat the 90 day redundancy nuke ;)

Looking forward to the next group order, Spectre. Already making my wish list.

I was curious if you could tweak the "SoulCalibur-A" marquee design to fit a Sega Astro City (NAC) when the time comes? Thanks.

Will certainly have a go at it for you. :thumbup:

Have had quite a few PMs asking about bits and bobs, the plan still is to offer up the marquees I already have in stock before the next group order in mid-August. Unfortunately I've not gone through the stock yet as I've been very busy with work of late, but will do in the next week or so (as soon as I find the time basically).

As always, thanks to everyone for their interest and their patience! :awe:

Would you be able to do a marquee for an Egret 2. I made one up for my Egret 3 below, but would be great to have an E2 one.

Have now updated all the Aero/NAC designs with the new shape, thanks to Kman for pointing out the issue and FrancoB for supplying the correct profile :awe:

Just a gentle reminder that design requests really need to be posted here in the thread, rather than to me by MP, to ensure I don't miss them off! :shifty:
