Candy Cabinet inspired bartops by Multi Game System

Recommended Posts

Its been awhile since I posted up on here but I have been busy building mini versions of Japanese arcade machines.  Particularly the Sega Astro City and MVS-U4.  I designed everything on the computer paying close attention to scale and proportions.  The cabs are mainly mdf with a bit of apoxie sculpt and shaping.  Inside both units is a micro atx system.  The screens are 4:3 15" HP LCDs.  1024x768 resolution.  The Astro has a scanline generator in it.  Note I'm still finishing up the marquee for the Astro.  Check out my Facebook page for more projects and info.  https://www.facebook.com/multigamesystem

That is sweet man, love the looks of candy cabs.

 

Thanks buddy as do I.  I'm thinking about working on a bartop style Vewlix and possibly other candy cabs.

Absolutely stunning! It never ceases to amaze me how people can hand build something out of MDF that looks like factory moulded plastic. The Astro City cab is astonishing. How on Earth do you do it???

Awesome work buddy, you've definitely captured the look of the Candy's. You've got some seriously good MDF tooling skills there.

Thank you and it took careful planning and lots of shaping.  I have been scratch building stuff all my life everything from model sail boats to cosplay armor.  So many of the tricks I learned over the years got put to the test on these two builds.  Also lots of filler and primer :)

Thank you ! :)  I have a bartop Vewlix design in the works.  

 

I also have built some fullsize cabs and joysticks.  Check out my facebook page :)  https://www.facebook.com/multigamesystem
