This is an Official home JAMMA arcade machine made by Silverline, me and my brother bought it back in 1992 for £310 from a shop in Bexleyheath called Arcade Gamer, this was a small shop inside a large shop called Trading World, it closed down long ago.
It comes with all the looms and a SCART plug for plugging into a standard television set, we used the excellent Phillips CM 8833 MkII 14" Monitor because TV's do not not have picture geometry controls and a monitor has a better image anyway.
Here are the few images I have, notice all the PCB's piled onto top of the machines, not the best board storage I've seen, in fact they just the boxes we bought them in..
In 2001 I stupidly decided to convert the Powarcade into a PC based machine using a PS2 keyboard converted to Joystick and Button inputs, this worked quite well but totallty destroyed something unique.
The original control panel was thrown away and totally remade, the original JAMMA loom and PSU was later sold with the Super Famicom and Mega Drive convertors my brother made.
Notice the neat loom, how many times do you see that these days?
I then sold the machine on eBay, I wish I never converted or sold it as it was a great size machine for the home.
Trivia:- One of the joysticks went with the machine, the other is in the Metal GSRcade joystick.
Wiring it up was not fun.
