I wonder if any uv from the tube would cause any fading?

The image is on the front and if it still could, you'd expect the fade to be more where the tube is, getting darker towards the edges.

I think your issue is your tube as mine looks as dark as yours when unlit.

I was only thinking that because being a sparky I have seen fade on surfaces near fluorescent fittings that’s been there a while.
Think I will make up some led strips or fit an led tube and see what that looks like, can’t be worse than the silly bayonet fittings in there.

My first real machine set up! JP2 Prem joins my vpin in my new room. Massive thanks to @philpalmer for answering all my questions and @Pick Holder for coming and setting it up upstairs, installing the extras I bought, giving me a walk through and for purposely not putting a high score on it before he left! Even though I'm rubbish, still really enjoying it, should give me plenty to work on for a while. Very happy :)

I would like to point out that the high score I would of put on you machine was with the glass off !

Nice to meet you. Drop me or Mr Palmer a line if you need anything.

Dino #2. This will be a conversion to probably Pi 4 running one of the many releases out there via Pi2Jamma. Not sure wether to leave the CRT in there (Will need re-capping as was squeeling like a pig and not very happy when i picked it up....) or to convert to a 17" 4:3 which i understand should fit...

@ronsplooter :D

Another classic Stern to add to the collection.

Almost lost the sale due to a dealer called Peter Hardman blatantly trying to gazump me even after the seller clearly marked the ad as sold.

Thankfully the seller honoured the deal and I drove up to Leicester to collect Galaxy this morning.

If anyone has a spare Galaxy backglass for sale please let me know.

To be fair I sold Peter a couple of tables, he turned up swiftly - collected - paid what I asked (he haggled a bit but I did allow for that).

He makes a few quid out of pins. Dont think he is very good with the soldering iron. Buys and resells a lot, but then again - when given the chance I do.

Ahh yes. Threatened me with Legal action.... It sems like he may have a couple of new accounts...
