We last brought you up-to-date with the latest developments with Quetzal Pinball in our 2013 Review of the Year, and at that time the creator of Captain Nemo Dives Again was having trouble sourcing playfields.
After initially choosing a material called a Phenolic panel for use as the playfield material, Antonio Ortuño had reverted to using plywood and had contracted Mirco Stefan of HighClassPinball in Germany to make the playfields.
Extended delays in the delivery of those playfields led Antonio to look further afield and he was in discussions to get them made by a manufacturer in the US.
However, the playfields have now arrived from Mirco and today Antonio sent us pictures of them.
Antonio says he can now start building sample games to make sure all the parts fit together correctly and make any necessary adjustments. Meanwhile, the cabinet decals will be applied and the clearcoat layer added which he estimates will take a month to fully cure.
There should be lots more news about Captain Nemo Dives Again in the coming weeks, and we'll be sure to bring it to you just as soon as possible, right here at Pinball News.
