Hi there,
Do you plan to do any headers for the Namco Exceleena 2 or Namco Cyberlead? Thanks
I would love to make these if I could get my hands on an original one to recreate them. At the moment I have no technical drawings and I couldn't find any detailed accurate measurements either. If you have a source, I will gladly reproduce them. :)

Hey,
I'm interested in a marquee holder for my New Astro City. Do they require any tape to hold the marquee in or do you just screw it together?

Thanks!

No tape, the marquee is sandwiched between the two plexi layers, which are bolted together. This keeps the marquee in its place.

By chance I have an original Super Neo 29 Candy marquee holder in house. If there is any interest for this type, I could make a faithful reproduction of it, including the white stripe and put it up for sale.

I am also going te offer the repro marquee holder for the Cyberlead soon.

I just got my two marquees today and they're amazing! ckong has done a fantastic job with these. Everything lines up perfectly, super clean edges, they were pack packed really well and shipped lighting quick. All in all very professional!

Thanks again and here's some pictures of them installed.

A few days ago I got some very nice Capcom logo stickers in house, professionally printed by forum member joeks. And they came right on time, so I could finish 3 Capcom Cute marquee holders.

Boxed and ready to go, together with an Astro City 2 marquee holder :D

ckong gets my recommendation for repro marquee holders. He makes quality products at decent prices. If anyone asks me about marquee holders I always send them his way :thumbup: 8-) :thumbupright:

Hopefully he should have some more holders for other cabs available soon ;)

UPDATE about a few redesigns that I recently made

I added redesigned marquee holders for the Vewlix and for the (New) Astro City, I call them design A. The former designs (B) are still available because some of you may like them more.

The two redesigned marquee holders are now made of one thick piece of clear acrylic and a thin clear film, just like the original marquee holders. This makes them even more faithful. It made the Vewlix holder (design A) a bit more expensive because of the higher material costs and material handling. The redesigned (New) Astro holder didn't get a price increase.


Image

Details and more pictures of these redesigns are in the OP.

And thx to a few people, for instance hikaru, I was able to draw up a great reproduction of the Super Neo 29 Type II marquee holder. I will lasercut a few the coming week, but I have already added it to the OP. :D

Next up (won't be a runner) is the marquee holder for the Versus City. This one is very much the same as the Astro City. :)

I got this picture yesterday from a happy customer, it's a Vewlix repro marquee holder design A

Image

And while the rest of the country was enjoying the beautiful weather, I was making these
Image

The big ones at the back are the new Super Neo 29 Type II marquee holders. They are huge :awe: >

Image

For comparison, here is the same one, but with the regular Super Neo 29 (Candy) marquee on top. :-o

Image

And I made a few Versus City marquee holders, with a thin 0.3mm plastic film in the center.

Image

Anyway, they are all packed and ready to be send to you guys ?(not all of you of course :D ). Some of them go to the UK, I hope that they get there in time. :roll:

Another happy customer here!
Since I live in Argentina and it's been difficult to import products lately, I made contact with Ckong and asked him for the chance to make the marquees and get them delivered in a quite short time window I had during a training course I was attending in Germany.
He has been very patient and cooperative and I want to thank him a lot for that and for trusting in me.

Hope we can do business again (and to get a cell phone with a better camera to take photos next time! :lol: )
