Is the only difference between the Astro city A and B marquees the backing sheet?

That and the fact that A is made of a 4mm thick front sheet and a 0.5mm thin small back sheet and B is made of two equal sized 2mm sheets. The back of A is as it is original and holds original artwork great, B will also hold larger repro artwork like the artwork made by Spectre.

You're welcome. :) And thx for the nice pictures, the marqueeholder looks great on the NAC, without any doubt the most beautiful Candy Cab. IMO of course. :D

Do you plan to do aero city marquees with the etchings?

I might, I'm working on it, but getting correct measurements is a bit of a pain in the ... because I don't have the original marquee holder. :eh: Maybe someone is willing to do some measurements?

BTW, what do you exactly mean with 'the etchings'?

A few more marquee holders went their way today to destinations all over the world. It's still 6 days until the October discount month ends.

And here is a little teaser for another project I'm working on.

I'm happy to tell you that I indeed will make the Aero city marquee holder, both the euro version and the Japanese version, I completed the design today (and thx goes out to FrancoB) and both will have a chamfered edge (is that a word? ) and the Japanese version will also have the 'etching', which is a decal. :awe: I'll expect them to be ready to sell somewhere this month.


Here is a picture of an original marquee holder with the decal clearly visisble:

Mine will look the same, but then with screws instead of the metal clips.

I will also have the Namco cyberlead / Cyberlead II repro marquee holder available soon. And if everything goes as planned the marquee holders for the Exceleena / Exceleena 2 make the list of newcomers complete. :)

How are you approaching the metal clips? Also I have to say that the marquee holder for the New Net City/Naomi looks better than the original.

I'm not approacing the metal clips. Instead of these clips I will use 2 bolts with nuts.
