It sure seems like there have been a lot of ambitious custom arcade stick projects lately. However, this one is probably one of the most impressive I have seen. Not only is it hand-built and modeled after the X-Arcade sticks, but it also features a hand-drawn and colored Metal Slug tribute on the surface.
You can find many close-up pictures of the entire process and the finished project at ardnut.co.uk
