This is a replica of the classic Stern drop target commonly used in early Stern Drop Target Assembly for what ever reason were substituted with the 13A-9-B or 13A-11 with a hood on the target (the hooded substitute is not for some pinball purist / restorers). This version has the rib guide
and another version has the no rib guide.
This is the a "Upgraded" version which has the back of the target section filled in to make it stiffer, search "swinksdrops" for all options.
In regards to rib guide
or no rib guide
- this is the part that when the target lifts up either the rib or the half round shelf below the target section (that is hit by the ball) sits on a metal shelf of the drop target mech.
Classic Stern’s that had the “Original tombstone drop targets” are:
- Cosmic Princess
- Hot Hand
- Memory Lane
- Wild Fyre
In addition you will have a choice of colours as well as an option for a premium finish in white, grey or black though Shapeways charges more due to the extra processes.
You can apply a decal to the front panel to capture that classic look and then add mylar over the front to protect from marking from the ball.
search "swinksdrops or "swinksrepro" for the other options
Note: these are a fraction dearer than the non-upgraded versions due to the extra plastic used to fill in the back to stiffen up.
