Classic 80s Aecade

My guess is the model is based of Flynn's Arcade from the movie Tron



Here's some pics of my Stoelzels Structures classic 80s arcade.I really enjoyed this build the 
sliding secret door was  a pleasure to put together i even left out the open and closing tabs for a more realistic look, i can still work it with my finger and thumb, i all so backed each side of the secret door wall with mounting board for a more sturdy finish, although i had to widen the rabbits to receive the thicker wall section,but that was not much of a problem.



I all so modified the stairs slightly the steps were very narrow so i omitted the front of each step, now i can slip a minis base under a step to hold it in place on the stairs.  I added a water tower from WWG to the roof, and i had to cut out a small piece from the roof access lid so the door could open and close.



I FORGOT TO PUT THE STAIRS IN FOR THE PHOTO

  2. The similarity between the model and Flynn's Arcade from Tron is very telling. Well spotted because I'd never have made that connection. I love your model. There is so much to admire about it.
