i made a 1:30 scale model of the arcade cabinet last night. i was a little concerned about how big the control panel is and after making the cabinet, i’ve decided that the control panel is too large. i also want to build a drawer into the cabinet, so i think that i’m going to modify the plans just a little bit. but i think i have a pretty good idea of how everything is going to work out.
i also borrowed a circular saw and jigsaw from my parents (though they don’t know that i did, heh) and i think that i have pretty much all the tools that i need to build the arcade. i’m almost ready to start buying parts. one quick trip to the arcade for a few measurements and i think i’ll be all set!
