The plastics are good, I can only see one small crack on the right hand slingshot plastic which has been reinforced by having a metal washer put underneath it. The translite is very good, only a miniscule touch up which really is not at all noticeable. The cabinet has some fade, this being the red which should be present, I wouldn't really say this is a problem and someone with some art skills could probably sort this quite easily, there are no damp or structural issues with the cab. The dot matrix display is all good, nice and bright with no warm up issues, all rows and columns work fully and the high voltage section of the dmd driver board has been rebuilt.The game plays really good and fast. The rubbers have all been changed, all of the bulbs work. The game has a remote battery pack fitted so there should not be any leakage in the future.
There are locks fitted, there is a photocopied manual, the machine is set to free play, The fittings are all there for an electronic coin mechanism should you want to install one at a later date. I have also PAT and leakage current tested the machine which passed ok, so you shouldn't get any nasty shocks from the metalwork! This really is a great game with lots and lots of shots to make, it's a really good game which isn't particularly easy so it keeps you coming back, the multiball is achieved by getting two balls into the saucers in the mini playfield and then the mini playfield lifts (see photo 4), then the grey targets which have been revealed need to be hit until all of the red squares on the main playfield are lit, this then causes the mini playfield to go one step higher (see photo 5) revealing the 3 dalek targets, if the remaining ball is shot into one of these targets the mini playfield lowers and kicks out the two captured balls giving a 3 ball multiball, the mini playfield then lifts again and the aim is to hit each dalek target, this gives a jackpot and once this is done the dalek targets are reset and you metamorphis into a different doctor. I hope my description makes sense, it's a brilliant game and i'm pretty well hooked.I'm hoping to get some extra space soon so that I don't have to sell some of the games I restore as I really don't want to part with some of them but I just haven't the space to keep them at the moment which is most annoying! All in all this is a very good example of a Dr Who and I have really restoring and enjoyed playing it. The all inportant 5 volts has been re-built and I have done the large mod on the back of the driver board with lots of wire links that eliminates the common cracked through hole plating issues or dry solder joints under the surface components such as under the elecrolytic capacitors which you just can't get at, I have found this mod to be all important on WPC machines of this era and makes the machine much more reliable. I also do full or partial restorations on any pinball 1977 or later, even the real odd and obscure makes, plus board repairs, some boards I can do on my rig, some I need the full machine it depends. I don't tend to do electro-mechanical's (pre 1976) mainly due to how time consuming they are, but have done a few in the past, so feel free to ask.
The pinball is quite large and heavy but the backbox can be folded, and the legs come off, so it should fit in an Escort van sized vehicle upwards, and I will help you load also.
