Introduction: Dragon Jewel Ball Machine Preview

Here's the awaited preview of my new ball machine Dragon Jewel. This will be a themed ball machine once completed. So far it includes 3 lifts: The Semicircle lift, the conveyor belt lift, and the reverse arm lift.
The last picture is a little teaser of what to expect in th theming of the ball machine. ;-)

Shadowman39 made it! (author)Shadowman392012-04-19

And the old one also gave an exact number, now it seems to just be half stars. Oh well, the old old rating system was still better than both old and new.

Just rebuild it! It shouldn't take too long. You can also make instructions while you're at it.
