    the pilot looks awsome...
    but is the scale right?
    doesn't he need to be a very lot bigger?

    Its correct. The a-wing is just larger than most people (myself included) assume. 9.6 meters

    Who says the pilot is human? It could be an alien with a big head. :mrgreen:

    It is all ILM's fault; they even put leg-less pilots into the Snowspeeders. :twisted:

    The detail hat you are putting into this model is really making it come to live.

    I was wondering if you have made a template for the cockpit interior and make it available?

    This looks fabulous! Very good job! The canopy is superb, and it really looks as if you have applied some weathering to it. Great!
