    A couple of boards in progress. The first one had a burn up of the PSU connector and was looking a bit sorry for itself. Straight off with the battery and change out anything corroded. The PSU lead was really beyond repair and plug A too! Luckily there was no track damage. Once everything was done, powered it up and it worked. Wish more were like that. Looking much better now. Sorry the pics were taken different ways up. The second board was in better nick but on switch on although the Alpha fired up with a battery alarm nearly all the lamps came on too. It then got as far as the game serial number then froze after 10 secs or so with an error bleep but the alpha had already frozen so no error code. At present I'm suspecting the 8279 chip which I hope to get a spare soon so I can prove it one way or the other. It's really annoying when you've used your last spare. I must remember not to do that in future! Watch this space

    The 'Red' version was BWB, which typically had the 5p versions; where the 'Blue' version was a Maygay, on the 20p stake. The gameplay was the same.

    Nice job... the mdf once it's blown does loose a Bit of integrity. Once it's gone/glued back it will still be able to be orbital sanded flat. Also long as its sealed/filled nicely it will look like new when refinished. What thickness is it 18mm? If it's just one of those panels I can trim you a replica if your really struggling mate
