Hey there! I’ve been using Google Sketchup to figure out a new layout for our arcade. I’m hooked on it. You can checkout more about this in my post on CoinOpSpace.com.
Here’s a couple of models I made with it so far, make sure you spin them around!
Awhile back, I bought an antique payphone on eBay, which looks similar to this one:
This phone is a bit too old fashioned to look good in our arcade. I’ve been planning on putting it upstairs in our hallway. It’s been sitting in the corner up there for 2 or 3 years now so I figured I should get around to mounting it. I don’t have keys, but managed to get into the top box and have a plan for mounting it. I’m making my own enclosure for it, which I modeled in sketchup:
Here’s a 3D view:
and an exploded view:
The plan is to make a custom TELEPHONE sign for the top, and have it light up. I’ll post more pics as I put it together.
