If you're a little short on inspiration, it can help to take a look at existing arcade cabinet plans. Several individuals in the community have taken the time to put together detailed drawings of their cabinets to 'share the wealth'. Jakobud has also put together a fine collection of classic cabinet plans, documenting detailed dimensions of all the necessary parts of your favorite classic arcade machine.

Cabinet Documentation in Progress

Project Link Original Release Notes
Star Wars Cockpit Atari, 1983 The Star Wars Cockpit (SWC) cabinet is the Holy Grail of many collectors. Recently several threads have sprung up on the forum in an attempt to document and produce plans of the cabinet. This wiki page aims to condense all the information from those threads into one central place.
