Magic Rabbit Set for Theatre of Magic Pinball

Sonntag, Februar 20th, 2011

After the candlelight mod for the Magic Trunk it seems to insert some new pets into Theatre of Magic Pinball. As there a many rabbits on the playfield I decide to take two and make replaces the eyes with 3mm power Leds in red, because there are dangerous rabbits on the playfield.
This time it was tricky to make the holes for it because this rabbit is tiny around 5cm long.

I done the holes like a Y 3mm for the eyes and from the back to the head around 3-5mm

It works good if you use a 1,5mm at the eyes to get a fix for the bigger hole

So up some plastics to connect the Rabbits to the slingshots.

For this I have used clear plastics and put them over the originals to prevent damage and to make the mod removeable without a trace

Magic Trunk Candlelight Replacement for Theatre of Magic Pinball

Freitag, Februar 18th, 2011

I done a litte mod to a Theatre of Magic Pinball. The original red Lamp in the Magic Trunk doesn’t look well and I found a solution. I tried the head of a LED candlelight and used a highpower 5mm LED and put it together in a socket for a Lamp

reducing the size of the led and the candlelight cover

As there is a 6V power Lamp I need here a resistor of each 100Ohm (total 200Ohm)

Rebirth of the Dragon “Light him up”

Donnerstag, Februar 17th, 2011

First I take the prepared doubleheaded Dragon look here

http://wolfsoft.de/wordpress/?p=1112

After this I am using 5 Leds to make up the eyes to live and one mouth give us fire for a breath…

I used a 2,5mm drill to make the holes through the eyes and with the help of some inelastic copper wire it was easier to get the flexible copper wires through the holes.

3mm power leds in yellow for the eyes

5mm power led in red for the mouth

As the necks are bended I need to make more holes to get from the head to the chest

If you look from the normal pinball view to the Dragon you will not see the wires :-)

I have to position the tail like this, so the ball will “ride” over the ramp without trouble

The left wing was a little to high and there was a problem with the glass but no problem with the help of a heat-gun. So the wing is fitting under the playfield.

Today I got a transparent Plexi for the mouth.
Its a first beta try, have some other idea in mind and I will show it later…

Today I got the 3D plastic. It is scratched with firelines so it looks more real and the plastic transports the light of the led better as standard plastics.

Thanks to my wife to put two plastics together to make it more 3D

Here you can see it attached to the dragon

This was needed to make the wires invisible. I got it and all wires are going insite the dragon.

Missing entrance plastic for Medieval Madness

Donnerstag, Februar 3rd, 2011

I recently bought a custom decal set for the targets and the entrance bracket from pinballdecals.com (thanks for this Joey).

But the decal for the entrance bracket is only a adhesive decal and it’s missing the plastic.
I made a vector graphic and ordered a plastic cutted with a laser.

Here you see se original left and right plastics and in the middle the new parts:

I went to a advertising company and get some double sided transparent adhesive to connect the decal to the bottom of the new plastic

After making this one, I am thinking of make a new bigger one, covers the complete bracket…
