    Default Nishijin Super DX model C project

    I got a new restoration project; itís a Model C with the seagull and cool palm tree trim! Nothing fancy, itís got a generic center feature but it seems like it will clean up good and only missing part is a track cover. Model Cís are the easiest to restore too! Since the back mechanics pop off as one piece and the front frame is covered in formica which still looks new. Iím thinking of a more colorful factory playfield replacement!

    looks like considerable amount of fluff in the back!

    I humbly take back previous boasting about no stink bugs. Upon disassembly I discovered this one too was a stink bugís home (and tomb) because thereís one long dead and dried out in the left most tulip!

    Better than a live one I suppose!

    Ironically this is the factory background ďSunriseĒ that came from the factory on my other fishing themed model C I restored a few months back. I changed the background on that one to the fish/starfish background to match the center feature.

    For my next restoration project up in line; the super rare Sanyo Majong 11 tulip I think Iíll have to stick with the original design, Iíll have to get it scanned and custom printed.
