Derek Garforth's Plastic Reproductions

A gentleman from the UK named Derek Garforth (E-Mail: derek.pinball@btinternet.com) makes reproductions of pinball plastics in small runs. These small runs are incredibly faithful to the originals. This page shows pictures of Derek's plastics compared to Williams' original parts. The original plastics that I am comparing the repros to are, unfortunately, a bit tar-stained from years of the pinball hanging out in a bar or other smokey environment. I think you can still get a good idea as to how close Derek's reproductions match the originals.

Derek uses a 3mm Merkalon plastic which is FAR stronger, and superior to that of the original plastics. These plastics are so nice, they make the rest of my game's plastics look cruddy in comparison. :)
