A very minor update this one – there should be a bigger one ready on Monday or Tuesday next week. I’ve been looking at recreating the decals for the drop targets and stand up targets. Thanks to a fancy printer my mother in law uses for craft and scrap booking, I’ve been able to come up with an excellent result. The decals are cut into vinyl then peeled and stuck on. Here is one of the orignal (broken) targets that was at the base of the Counterforce cabinet, along side a second hand yellow target with a new decal installed.
I was keen to try them on the stand up targets too. These needed a hole punched in the middle to fit around the stud. This one wasn’t too bad. But after a clean, more of the decal wiped off.
The remainder of the decal was removed and the target cleaned. The new decal was then applied. I’m pretty happy with the result. Because the shape is cut into a sheet of vinyl, I can create any colour required for future projects too.
You can buy sets of target decals from Pinball Rescue, but in the interests of “doing it myself” and saving money, I’m really happy with how they came out. Cost next to nothing to make (except for some time)
