After getting quite a few requests, and looking over the source material I had to work with, I've decided to tackle Twilight Zone as my next VPM table. While I dont expect it to be as hard as Circus Voltaire, I'm sure I have quite a few challenges in store for me.

I have decided to keep a log on my site, as I make the table.

Heres a link...

and of coarse, the first wip.

Modeled the double and single clear plastic star posts. Placed some in there respective playfield locations. Added some GI lighting. Modeled the first of many metal ball guides. Spent an hour getting the material shader for the clear plastic star posts right.

Heres a Wip, and the log on my site is updated as well.

Thanks Joe, and Petri!

Modeled more brackets, the plastics and the overhead light.

Looks like the mini playfield is pretty much done. Still need to cut holes for the lightning bolts and eye lights, and make the inserts.

Heres a WIP....

Modeled and placed the Pop Bumpers on the table. The plastic on the caps looks a little thick. I may have to redo the caps.

Heres another wip. I have modeled the big plastic ramp. I still have to add the decals to the ramp, and the metal flap on the ramp entrance.

Thanks, Galahad!

Started to model the gumball machine. I thought I'd use a unique way of placing the gumballs in the machine. Since my 3d software has physics based animation, I let gravity do the work. The simulation placed the gumballs in the machine.

Heres a link to the video of the animation....

Finally got back to work on it. (My next show is open.)

Put the gumball machine on the playfield. Started to model the
inserts and playfield lights.

The gumballs are hidden at the moment (I ate them ALL!!!!) ;)

Heres a new wip, some detail of modeling I just finished on the end of the long wire habitrail.

I think the whole ramp needs to go up higher, as part of it is running into the top of the pop bumper. ;)

Got to thinking about the BG, and I had some time to kill this morning.

Heres a quick mock up of what it probably will look like, dependent on changes in the playfield angle, and cabinet stuff.
