Help identify this cabinet.

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

So I'm making my first Arcade Cabinet and I have recently purchased the attached. I want to do my own artwork but was hoping their was a template for this particular cabinet. Does anyone know what this style of cabinet is called or if there is a template for it?

 

Thanks.

The company selling those arcades probably use their own design. If that is the case then there most likely aren't any plans for it.

 

That's what I'm thinking too.

 

 

Well why not ask whoever/wherever you bought it from?

 

I bought it from a Bike store. YEP! A Bike store. He buys old gutted arcade cabinets and resells them. The one I bought, they import from China. I did ask but they didn't know much. :-(

 

I guess I better start measuring.

That looks similar to a Midway or Konami style cabinet from the 90s. Both are similar in style and are the 'authentic' version of what you are looking at.

 

Examples of games you would have found in a Midway style like that:

Mortal Kombat - MK4, Killer Instinct 1 & 2, NBA Jam, NFL Blitz, Skins Game

 

Examples of games in the Konami version:

Simpsons, X-Men 4 player, TMNT, TMNT: Turtles in Time

 

Anyway, this site has plans for Mortal Kombat and Ninja Turtles so either of those would be very close (and more like a real arcade game)
