The ebay link I gave earlier in the thread was a Chinese seller. The cannon was $10 and postage was$2. Goods arrived in about 1week.

thread moved into the mods section under the Stern Category and cleaned up to represent the direction as my suggestion can't compete with this solution. Going off the video that is awesome, just needs a painted bracket over the coil and spring and you have a much better AC/DC cannon.

Can't wait to see your revision Freiherr

I ordered one of these myself today. Looks the goods. Its apx $30 aust delivered via paypal if u go via the UK seller, or its apx half if u go via the chineese company via China.    UK listing below for those that dont trust chineese companies etc on ebay but most are good, most of the time.

I love this.... some random guy in China knocking out models of cannons that noone wants until someone sees the product and modifies it to suit an ACDC pinball.
Next thing he knows.. business is booming and he has no idea why westerners suddenly love his cannons.

Funny stuff

What gets me is how good the dimensions of the cannon are. Its as if this guy from China knew how crappy the Stern toy was and he made one to measure....it is perfect width, length and height.

He did, it is now $784 for a cannon. I can see him now frantically emailing his supplier in China trying to secure stock to fulfill the orders.....

I am not totally happy with the current mod. You can still see the bare mechanism underneath. I am working on a cover on which the cannon sits. This will add more possibilities such as cannon balls on top of cover behind the cannon and maybe some wording on the side of the mechanisms such as "For those about to rock" or maybe a small tribute to the great Scot.

here is some installation instructions for this mod

utoplay=1&rel=0




from a pinsider
http://www.pandawill.com/120-scale-military-artillery-with-cannonball-toy-p55378.html

Price lowered $.01 because they "saw better price". Also here is a coupon code (that works ) that takes 5% off of your order. $7.12 including shipping is hard to beat.

PANDAFORYOU5

I'm expecting a delay on shipping because of the seemingly month long Chinese New Year. I'm in no rush. I don't even have an AC/DC.....yet. As good as this mod looks and as cheap as the cannon is...I can't imagine having one and not installing this. Buying one now save me possibly searching for one in the future.
