Ok. Moved this to it's own thread to better gauge interest.

So I talked to Mikonos over at UKVAC about ordering Egret 2 sideart because he can print it using the metallic silver ink instead of just grey like most repros use. He has told me that if I get interest in at least 10 sets of the art he can do a run using the proper ink and perhaps get an upgrade to a UV resistant sealant.

The price he has given me is around 80 Euro (Around $90 USD) each plus shipping.

Let me know in this thread if you are interested and I will add you to the list. Please don't say you will buy it if you are not 100% wiling to pay for the art when it is ready. I'll get the list started with two sets for myself.

INTEREST LIST

@Mitsurugi-w --- 2 sets
@acblunden2 --- 2 sets
@mncmt --- 1 set
@Derick2k --- 2 sets
@kuze --- 1 set
@ekorz --- 1 set
@8bitforlife --- 1 set
@garrz32 --- 1 set

What's the ETA?

And are there any examples of his work using the proper ink to be seen?
I asked about the ETA and I'll let you know as soon as he answers.

He does have a picture of a test print in his thread here:

He also shows the entire printing process on his site. He seems to be a perfectionist. Link below but you have to register to see it. Interesting stuff.

Thanks for the links. I'm probably in for two, but I'll confirm my ability when we have at least a slight idea as to the ETA.

I'd love to see someone use something like this for a Virtua Fighter CP repro. It wouldn't completely give the mirrored effect, but it's been a long time coming and there isn't much out there.

@Mitsurugi-w If no one else jumps in to get the 10th one need to go ahead with group order, i'll pick it up, might come in handy if I mess up the installation on a set.

Also, can you ask him if he has any NAC or Super Neo 29 sideart, I would like to buy a set of each if he can print those.

Thank you.

Hi, Im Mikonos and I´m Zona Arcade´s Webmaster!

I´m restorer of Egret II Side Arts.

Mitsurugi-w told there are interested in some other pices too:

NAC Sideart
Super Neo 29 Sideart
New Net City Sideart
New Net City Marquee

I restored all these pieces and reproduced succesfully. Let´s see:

- About "Astro City Side Arts" : It was needed a green fluorescent ink impossible in digital printing method (plotter), for this reason it was printed in off-set. It will same printing method that egret II Side Art.

Here you can see my digital restoration, I preserve original dot patter):

https://zonaarcade.forumcommunity.net/?t=57798929#entry407453973

- About New Net City Side Arts: It was needed to print over chrome vinyl. I order a extra glossy protective lamination for repro, same with Astro City Side Arts. I like to protect all my printing results with this improvement.

https://zonaarcade.forumcommunity.net/?t=49856566#entry414490882

- About New Net city Marquee: It was needed a chrome details in logo:

https://zonaarcade.forumcommunity.net/?t=58761190#entry415591840

- About Super Neo 29 Sideart, Nobody asked me for now. I like to get original material with his original dot patter. I can restore all.


I have all artwok set scanned from New Net city, even reproduced, it was easy. About Astro City and New Astro City. I have all pieces restored or in way, but not all reproduced for now.

Now, I´m collecting and restore all periphery stickers by SEGA for Astro City, Naomi and other cabs

https://zonaarcade.forumcommunity.net/?t=60281935&st=15#entry437461897

I have more stikers, of course, but, it was a good develop for now.

Reproduction details in "New Net City Side Arts" printed in chrome vinyl with extra gloss protective lamination (photo 2).

Welcome @Mikonos, fantastic artwork there mate, alongside @alberto1225's panels... I reckon full cab restores have a bright future!
