Seems those sneaky russians are working on a Model 3 emulator.. Model 3 is probably still one of the best arcade PCBs ever made – and will always have a place in my heart – When Sega where far and away the king of the arcades.

Well exciting times, what do I expect from 2010?? The last few Lindbergh titles, including a Hummer Sequel, and then a global move to RingWide/RingEdge. I will support the Lindbergh for at least the next 5 years.
