    That is some really cool stuff. I checked out the sites that you got your models from and they have some amazing items. Thank you for sharing those.

    These little details you add on, as I am sure you know, greatly enhance the model. I think you are one among the most consistent builders in this forum! :)

    Thank you master :)
    But i have to add all those details because of the size..
    or else it would look very basic..

    Excellent work and your attention to detail must be commended. The cockpit is turning out great and it keeps getting better with each update.

    Thanks you all..
    The cockpit is almost ready..
    I need to glue the pilots into place give them the belts they need..

    And then start to think how to build the mainframe for carrying this ship.
    The underside is still open so that i can insert a mainframe.

    You could always Velcro their butts into place! :)

    I guess they will have to stick with "and", "or", and "if"! :)

    Ok.

    mounting point installed..
    a wooden board and there i screwed the cockpit on. (third pic)

    and everything worked how i wanted it to. :) (until now).

    i glued the pilots...i had to unglue the first pilot because i sat to high..
    now i have to look what the problem is.
    And maybe the front pilot will get some kind of legs and maybe hands.
