Sega Naomi Sit-Down - New Net City Art – Part 1

About The Cab
Well here is my Sega Naomi, which has been converted to a sit-down cabinet with New Net City art. 

The legs had been chopped by a previous owner, but because they had some deep scratches / gouges I decided to replace them with Sega Japan official Naomi SD cabinet legs.  The Japanese leg covers are bare metal, polished and varnished and look stunning, particularly with the New Net City reflective silver and black art, it’s awesome.

The cabinet front assembly and bezel had been previously repaired with plastic steel and the light cover was damaged.  Also the marquee assembly was damaged and had a small part missing.  Getting hold of Naomi spares, especially plastics is getting increasingly difficult with many parts no longer available from Sega.  Over time I’ve managed to replace most of the old / damaged plastics with factory fresh new parts. This includes the Naomi front assembly complete with monitor bezel, inserts and screw cap covers, light cover, control box upper, and marquee assembly.

Sticks And Buttons
New Sanwa sticks, ball tops and push buttons have been fitted.  The ball tops are the “meshball” type.
