Oz,

 

Just wonderful! The upper "Journey into Space" and "Sputnik" graphics are much nicer in my opinion than the 'Dan Dare' theme on the other machine pictured. What is the height (if I had to guess I'd say it's in the 20" to 24" range)?

Will you be restoring this machine? With the right nickel refinish and wood cabinet restoration you could obtain a happy medium between a vintage patina look and brand new appearance...

 

 

Yes this needs some minor TLC , I may add some removable lightning since the back may need replaced but that's about it

Also the cash door needs to be created 

A Facebook friend has yet another variation

I never liked those claw grip machines that took children's  money 💰🎣

and 10:1 never successfully extracted a toy for them to win...THAT to me is gambling.

Thanks for the kind replies 

This is the only one I own 

The interspace version was a picture on facebook

I am on the hunt for all different space themed arcade machines

Wonderful graphics on this one too, it would be a nice complement to your restored Journey into Space machine!
