Custom Build OutRun Machines

Jackie Abuhazera has been a fan of OutRun since 1987, he mentions on his own blog that OutRun was the one game that stood out to him in the arcade.
So he decided to make his own version to bring back his memories…….
Above – time to have some fun with friends.

Above- Nice 80’s artwork

Above- Ferrari wheel and Route Map


Time to transform for another Yu Suzuki classic…..

All set up for Space Harrier and Afterburner.

OutRun Paradise -Custom build Arcade Machine
A custom build OutRun racing project by GBeef found over at ARCADE CONTROLS

Above – A mock up image prior to the build. It’s always good to plan ahead.

Love the lit header/top sign. Taken and adapted from the 80’s U.S GOLD home computer box art. Looks stunning!

The artwork and design ready was done very well and makes this racing arcade machine at home look very professional.

Check out the video below-

OutRun Paradise by GBeef

I’ve been at the Lego again over the last 3 weeks to have a go at making OutRun Deluxe arcade machine.
It’s probably taken a good 6 hours overall to put this together…between keeping my 2 boys happy.
The only thing I would like to do better would be the wheels. The wheels are not similar to the arcade and they are also out of place.

Generally though I really like it.

Check out the pics below.

I came across this great model by Steve Carpenter.
He has used the workings of a Gameboy Advance and Sega Arcade Gallery to run this home built machine.

Even the wheel and pedals etc work.
See photos of the project below
Steve has since been responsible for creating the popular mini iPhone arcade machine called the “Arcadie”

Hand Painted OutRun Tie ๐Ÿ‡ช๐Ÿ‡ธ
Painted by artist Maya from Madrid,Spain Yu Suzuki would be proud to wear this to collect his next Award.
It’s great how Maya has managed to replicate the game in pixel form.
So you want to get hold of one of these Tie’s?
Check out eBay, but don’t expect to get one cheap. The last one sold for over 300โ‚ฌ!
OutRun Arcade Machine Model
Ivan, a regular contributor to OutRun 86 Blog has shared some photos of his miniature OutRun arcade machine that he recently bought.

The model is mainly made from modeling wood but also includes a mini LCD screen with several images of OutRun that change over time.

If your interested in getting one of these models you can pick them up on eBay or checkout SubZero’s Models although Sub Zero’s site has recently said that his models are to be discontinued.

OutRun Bead Art

Check out this cool looking OutRun bead art recreating a classic OutRun screenshot.
Taking over 2 days to complete and using 13’000 beads its an impressive piece of work.
You can pick one of these up on eBay or etsy for the price of $50.

[Added to the Custom made OutRun page]

Heres some more bead art from

Custom Built OutRun Testarossa by Vic Veinz

We’ve seen a few excellent custom OutRun models before but this is a first for custom posable figures.


Vic has used pieces from various other figures to create these custom OutRun characters. Alberto the driver of the ferrari was made Wolverine arms, his face and head from Daredevil with painted black glasses . Clarissa uses parts from Street Fighter 2’s Cammy and other figures.


The Ferrari is a 1:12 scale Testarossa kit by Monogram. The car was modified into a convertible by cutting off the top half.


……..and the legendary OutRun crash!!!!!!!!!
