    Default looking for a Nishijin powerflash thunderbird model

    a fully restored functional might be too much to ask, so i'm also interested in a vintage machine that needs restoration.

    There is one for sale on eBay in the US. Not sure if the seller will ship to Canada or what shipping/import would cost you.

    https://www.ebay.com/itm/Nishijin-Po...YAAOSw-1NfdVhB

    This is a relisted auction. It think the first auction finished at ~$275 USD, but obviously the buyer didn't pay or it wouldn't have been relisted. Maybe someone playing around running the price up expecting that they wouldn't win, or a case of buyer's remorse.

    well something happened somewhere bc it is on its way!! i paid the cost of the machine in shipping (extra protection) and will soon have something to treasure and enjoy.
    not sure how to delete threads i've started.

    keep this Thread going for the whole story of receiving it to the final restoration and play (with possibly a nice YouTube video of game play ? )

    anyhow - something appears to be up with the payout switch somewhere - and the bottom jackpot looks like it isnt feeding into anything..will be taking a look this week to sort it out!
