New Arrival – Sega Aero Table

About The Cab
Here is my Sega Aero Table.  I have lusted after one of these for a long time.  When one finally came up for sale I couldn’t resist, despite space issues!  I set off to collect the cab and the hired van broke down after about 10 miles, not the best start.  The next day I tried again with a new van.  It was an epic nine hour round trip, but well worth it!

The cabinet has been totally refurbished by a previous owner and the shell powder coated. The cabinet is extremely solid and well built.

The monitor is a MS8-26SE with no noticeable burn.  Monitor adjustment is carried out on the chassis – no remote board here!  The monitor can be tated.  Interestingly the monitor frame is different to that of an Aero City, being more square shape.

To Do
1. The metal side art decals are in poor condition – fabricate a new set.
2. Find the elusive speaker pod and marquee holder.  For some reason quite a few of these cabinets are missing them.
3. Lightly clean monitor tube and chassis with an air duster and anti-static brush.

The Games
I’m planning on using this as a horizontal cab for my older classics and horizontal Cave shooters.

I currently have PVG Tech/Hanaho Taito Gameroom Classics multi-game PCB installed in the cab. The board came with a 20 game SD card, and includes some of my all time favourites including Bubble Bobble, Rainbow Islands and The Newzealand Story.  The small compact size of the board is perfect for this cab as PCB space is pretty tight.

Many thanks once again to AeroCityMayor / Ralph for the cab and for letting me have a few credits in his awesome games room.
