I’ve been stuck in an Internetless hell this weekend, cable modem’s died and the earliest Virgin can get to me is next Saturday 🙁 Luckily I get into work nice and early which gives me time to write an update on this project!
My last update for this the twinsticks over 6 month’s ago, and took a bit of a backseat with all the Wedding preparation. At the time I also noticed one of the sticks had a busted microswitch which wasn’t really fixable.. Well now i’m back on with this again, another quickshot off eBay in hand.
Firstly, as per the pic above I’ve sprayed the sticks a nice matte black which looks way better than the NES grey they previously were. Still trying to decide on a trigger colour, thoughts?
Secondly, i’ve worked on the faceplate a little bit, previously I’d taken the original VOOT faceplate design and reworked into a shinier Xbox style. Now looking at it I’ve decided I want a darker version to match my Xbox Elite.
So here it is! It’s only a little darker but I much prefer the look. Going to send it off to photobox for printing, best get a few copies in case I mess up cutting holes for the sticks.
Going to have a look for some arcade buttons too, fingers crossed for a good colour match!
