    If you print the model larger, you could install your computer monitor where the screen should be. You can download many of those old arcade games to run on a modern pc.

    Then stack up the quarters and start playing Donkey Kong, just like 1985! :)

    My daa did something like that. He managed to get an old arcade case from somewhere, and mounted a Nintendo in it for the grandkids. I have a picture of my son playing on it somewhere

    For all you retro gamers who remember fondly the evolution of the PC, try this link:

    I remember playing most of these when I was in grade school... on a monochrome green monitor, to boot! :-D
