   Current game status (Jan. 22, 2002): This game has been transferred to it's new owner. I will have no further updates to this page unless I happen to get one of these for myself.
 
   As you can see here, there are many spots where the wood has been scratched, chipped and dinged. However, the sideart is in pretty good shape, the damage is most noticeable in the black areas, thank goodness that's easy to fix!

    The cockpit front is in pretty good shape, the gold paint needs some touching up but overall, not bad for such an old game!

    As you can see, the right side is pretty much the same story as the left. You can see a portion of the control panel. I believe the monitor is one Andy installed after he bought it, not too sure about that, or whether it works. Actually, come to think of it, the monitor doesn't currently work - I have replacement neck boards in my trunk for it though.

    As you can see, the back panel is not currently attached to the cockpit. It's a large piece of plastic, with decals representing engine glow. With the exception of the torn botton decal, it's in great shape for being 18 years old.

    The bottom of the seat is pretty messed up - I think there may have been some sort of vinyl-covered foam cushion down here originally, not sure though. Should be pretty easy to replace with something better than what came in the original, I'd think.

    As you can see the CP has seen better days, but the stickers are intact, no tears or rips, and NO CIGARETTE BURNS! Since that is all plastic, I doubt much can be done to the black plastic to spruce it up. It may be possible to replace the buttons if necessary. I have no idea if the 49-way (???) optical joystick is in working condition or not, we'll find out once the boards are installed. By the way, anyone have a spare working boardset for a Sinistar cockpit? :)

    Here is the obligatory monitor shot - note the picture cuts off before the missing neck board.
