So, after a long period of just thinking about building one, I finally got the ball rolling and bought a 40" (101.6 cm) LED for the playing field. It's a cheap one, and the viewing angle on it isn't the greatest (right now it's laying slanted on a small coffee table at about a 14 degree angle, and if I just sit in front of it I do notice the far side of the screen fades a bit). I've drawn a crude sketch of the main cabinet, after measuring and double checking and triple checking I think it'll end up 23.75" (60 cm) wide and 41.7" (106 cm) long. The back box will stick out another 2" (5 cm) on both sides and the back. Not sure how tall the back box will be, as I've not decided yet on what monitor(s) to use. I also don't know yet how deep to make the cabinet, I've estimated it at around 16" (40.6 cm) in the front to 26" (66 cm) in the back. But I'm not sure how high the box will stand on actual pinball legs since I haven't gotten those yet. As soon as they are delivered I'll be buying the wood to start building. Things I already have: - 40" LED television - PC (Intel Core 2 Duo @ 2.4 Ghz, 8 GB Ram, ATI Radeon HD 2400 Pro) - Arcade buttons - iPac - 2nd Monitor for Backglass - 3rd monitor for I don't know yet - USB Speakers Things I have on order: - Pinball machine legs (+ levelers) - Coin door + Mech - Plunger Post will be updated if any progress is being made.
