Very random question, but does anyone know if there’s anyone or any store that sells bare (unpopulated and no overlay) Sega Astro/Blast city 2L12B control panels? Perfectly fine with repros, and rreferably in North America.
I’m trying to make an effort to finish up (or more like “redo”) my half-baked Sega-panel dual stick this fall, and I think the easiest/fastest way for me to get it done is to simply get a new panel.
- MDF casing that’s sprayed with Plasti-Dip (will remove the Plast-Dip and will paint it properly)
- Some bizarre repro Sega panel that has a really weird layout (30mm joystick hole and Astro P1 on both sides) that doesn’t actually fit properly in a hole that’s perfectly routed for official Sega panels (like the HOT-2005); I don’t even have an overlay for this one; it’s actually just bare painted metal.
I do have a repro Blast City CP overlay, so I figured the easiest and simplest solution would be to ditch the weirdo repro panel, get a proper one that’ll fit the casing, and use the repro Blast City CP overlay. Would definitely be simpler to do that than to re-route the casing and get another CP overlay printed (and then my repro Blast City overlay would yet again be doing nothing).
