Title: Good Custom Consoles
Post by: TrekMD on February 17, 2014, 02:08:30 AM
So, we have a thread of bad custom consoles, how about we look at those that are well done.† Let's get started with these modded NES consoles...

The Atari 2600 Druid Edition (50 devices per model). Silver switches with blue/yellow backlight, AV, Stereo Surround and Joystick pause mode. Technical best Atari 2600 console ever. These mods are unique worldwide.

Atari 2600 Special Edition (~25 devices known)

Cool stuff. I just wonder how the NES consoles were cut out. Did that guy have a CNC laser table?

most likely as it looks like a toy for children ;-)
I wonder why they do the cutout and not using backlight which is quite nicer than another color.

Slightly amateurish on the lower one, but still pretty good overall, considering the amount of custom brushwork involved.
Title: Re: Good Custom Consoles
Post by: TL on February 22, 2014, 21:33:48 PM
I think the first one should be in the other thread but the second one is good!
Title: Re: Good Custom Consoles
Post by: sloan on February 22, 2014, 21:47:13 PM
Funny, because I kind of considered the last one for the other thread. The first one has an airbrushed appearance, especially on Sonic's hands and is quite nice in a weird sort of way.

The hand is nice but the Sonic writing looks like it was done with Tippex! Could be the angle though.

I have seen that gold Zelda NES before. Quite nice.

I found some of the guy's work I was thinking of, Custom NES Guy. Like I said, he does automotive quality finishes.

(http://i1336.photobucket.com/albums/o646/sqoon/castlevanianes01_zpsb044dc78.jpg) (http://http)

This one isn't Custom NES Guy's, but is still impressive IMO.

Not too keen on the console but those pads are amazing! I wouldn't mind a full set with one for each SoR character.

are the controller painted or is this a plastic leaf? I'm asking because a joystick is normally stressed and the hands are like rubberbands after a while.

silver on top of the switches (as the switches of the original woodgrain) and orange LED in power switch if it is turned on (that's why there is no LED as on an ordinary Junior).

I saw this in the "bad" custom console thread.
The colour may not be to everyone's taste but I have to say, it's really well done.
The original pic doesn't do it justice so here it is.

That Snes is super Nice, and a real shame they didn't do them like that back in the 1990's, there could of being some really rare one now.
Title: Re: Good Custom Consoles
Post by: retromod on October 31, 2014, 09:27:50 AM
the SNES are very cheap today. In ebay < 20 EUR. The power led AND light within the logo is overkill in my opinion. Why not simple remove the light and use the logo only? (as it is painted anyway no big task).
the black labels on the function keys looks a little bit "handmade" in my opinion. White would be nicer, too.
I've bleeched some SNES and they looks very nice so not sure if painting is really required here.
