I saw this pretty cool project that someone's working on... just figured I'd share: http://forums.arcade-museum.com/showthread.php?t=180916 . It's basically an arcade cabinet, but has a VB in it, with arcade sticks, buttons, and pinball flippers. Page 5 has the latest pictures as of now.

I'm a little unsure how it'll all come together, but I definitely give him an A for effort, and hope it turns out nice. The craftsmanship is definitely great quality.

I have been tempted to pick up a gutted Battlezone cabinet and do something similar, but I really don't have the room for a giant cab, when a VB works just fine w/o it. ;) Plus, Battlezone cabs are VERY HEAVY.

That is awesome, superb creativity. I hope the final layout feels good for comfort etc, it looks like it should do and I just love the side buttons for pinball, brilliant touch.

I'll keep an eye on that to see how it turns out, that's going to be quite a piece!

I can't wait to see the end result!

It is pretty SWEET! Wonder if he'll paint it red and black?

Yeah, he painted the front black, and is planning to paint the sides red, as well as having red T-molding.

This is awesome. I've been searching for a store display forever but this is way better.

I think the black t-molding looks better, but it's still a great idea well executed.
