My favourite arcade game is Millipede. Not sure if anyone can help but I have a couple of questions:

Where is the best place to try sourcing an original machine? I've tried ebay and googling but to no avail?

If I can't get an original what would you recommend for a good replica machine with a trackball installed? Extra games would be a bonus as my kids would get bored with 1 game (although I wouldn't).

Thanks for any advice

I got mine from the USA
Probably your best bet and get it imported.
Great choice though.

It's not a game often seen for sale over here, but a few years back a sudden burst of the Atari Ireland cabs surfaced all in short time, all of them converted so all project cabs if there to be restored
 
I managed to pick one up a few miles from me, which was pretty amazing as I never get much local, converted to Hyper Sports, I got lucky when all the missing parts came up not long after so I can restore it now, another job on my long list
 
There were 2 other cabs came up in UK and a few in other countries, but non since in last few years
 
If the other 2 haven't done anything with their cabs, you might get a project one, sides painted over on one with heavy marks in side art when removed though
 
After that your best bet is ones from USA

Fantastic choice of game.

Your other option is to grab a Centipede cab, a Millipede PCB and an adapter and play both games in the Centipede which was my choice.

Both awesome games, Millipedes are a heavy, awkward unit to move around.

You'll more than likely have to find Millipede pcb in USA also, don't see many here
 
The Euro shape Millipede cabs are a great size and easy to move about

Yep, very rarely come up now, I had two of those Euro versions when that little run of them happened all of a sudden at one point. Hell maybe this virus isolation, might mean I actually get to go and look at it at long last, I got the multipede kit in December and think I have all the bits to try and get it going. 

The states is probably the best place to find one, make sure it has a PCB though, those are now selling for silly money on their own.

why not get "chrisbarriedesigns" to make you one. im sure the artwork is available, would be minty mint then too.  probably similar cost to importing one from usa....

thats probably what i would do if I didnt have one already ;)

I have a spare control panel in reasonable condition, and a very dirty trackball if it helps.
