   other aussie style cocktail cabinets

These are some of the other 'aussie' style MAME cocktail cabinet projects, reviews, restorations and plans out there. More properly these are 'Japanese' style and appeared in European and American arcades too. In general they somewhat resemble a school desk. Japanese companies like Taito, Nintendo and Sega made variations. In Australia we had Hankin and LAI (Leisure and Allied Industries) which dominated the field. Anyway us aussies call these types of cabs 'Aussie' because we never saw any other type! In fact several of these examples aren't even in Australia. But i'm glad that was the only type we had because i think these look great. I've been in love with my MAME cocktail cabinet since i built it and so here is a chance for others to feel the love. I think there is absolutely no better way to play Space Invaders, Frogger, Pacman or Galaga than sitting at a cocktail cab. Sounds like a plan (",)
