Re: Bryan’s Allwin 4 Square

Not convinced about the individual strips being original, bryans fan. The colour sequence is not correct for original backflash. It should be (from left to right) blue, yellow, red, white, green, red, yellow, blue.

Re: Biplane Shooting Game

I remember that the machine had a built in screen that displayed the flying biplanes. Does yours have the screen jingle?

Re: Biplane Shooting Game

gm - it could well have been the Radio Rifle but if you say that the machine only used one frame per play then it could be that what we did after numerous game plays, was sellotape the frames together to form a strip of the frames. I can still hear that dull 'thud thud' as the trigger was pulled!

Re: Allwin Deluxe backflash

geordy55 - your machine looks great, even with the slight wear mark on the backflash. Leave it as is, it adds character and tells of a life in service. What about the cabinet? Do you intend to bring the wood back as new and remove the decades of wear, bumps and grease marks that indicate that this ...

Re: Weight of Bandits

Very true John, I think it could also involve lack of bowel control, vis-a-vis the involuntary evacuation of malodorous air, which could also be a resulting factor.

Biplane Shooting Game

I recall back in the 1950s and early 60s, playing an air combat shooting game whilst on holiday, think it may have been at Paington. It had a rifle that was aimed at a screen which showed a movie film of flying biplanes. The object of the game was to hit as many of these aircraft as possible and th...

Re: The old thinking cap

Many of them were converted Roger, but when the UK finally went decimal in February 1971, electro-mechanical machines had already established themselves and making in-roads into many arcades (1971 saw the first electronic coin-operated video game - Computer Space) and I guess a lot of operators dec...

Re: Electro-Medical Battery Co. Corinthian identified

Looks like the shocker in Daveslot's opening post has come to the market again (ebay), so if you have a spare £6500 in your back pocket grab one of these rare machines.
Have to say not as attractive as the unit in sweetmeat's photo.
