    Ouch! Ouch! Ouch!

    Okay, okay, I surrender! Here are some new pics... And this time I'm NOT kidding! You see the first step towards the cockpit interior. I have isolated the cockpit section and will work from that.

    Is that enough room for the entire cockpit ?
    That's no critisism, just curious.

    I have the utmost respect for your 3d modeling abilities. I tried fidgeting around with blender and pepakura designer,...... well it did look very alien but not as we know it :oops:

    I'm realy looking forward to see the further development of this magnificent fighter.
    Wow do I love papercraft or what ?
    I can hit myself in the head time and time again that I didn't find this fantastic hobby before!!

    Cheers,
    Elko

    Hello, all! :wave:

    The first pics of the cockpit interior were just a start. I'm refining it now and will adapt everything as work progresses. What makes it extremely difficult is the fact that the original Viper mock-up didn't have a cockpit interior. There was only a seat, there were no instrument panels, no joystick, nothing. The only refs I have to guesstimate the look of it are pics of the cockpit set piece used for close-ups and the interiors of the commercial kits. A man named Joel Owens has developed detailed dashboard graphics. These are great and the best dashboard graphics available. I'm contacting him to ask him for permission to use them on this project. The current state is attached.

    CU!

    :wave:

    I can already tell that this is going to be an ABSOLUTE WORK OF ART!!!

    As for Joel Owens and the detailed dashboard graphics he developed for the Viper, here is the website that shows such: http://www.joelowens.org/bsg/viper.html.

    So if Revell-Fan does in-fact get permission to use this for the cockpit interior, be prepared to have a FAN(FRAKKING)TASTIC cockpit interior that will not only compliment an already WONDERFUL plane, but definitely and definitively set it apart from all of the rest (paper and plastic alike).

    I am GREATLY looking forward to this project!!!

    Even if Joel does not approve we still have the graphics on his site. So it would be possible to download them, print them and glue them to the areas in question.

    I'm pushing and pulling the cockpit into shape. I think it comes very close to the set piece now and it still fits inside the fuselage.

    If Joel sees what you are doing with this Viper, I would be VERY SURPRISED if he says "NO" to you using his console diagrams for the cockpit interior.
    Maybe you can entice him with a copy of the kit (or even a finished model) once everything is finished, if he will agree to such (just a thought).

    Hmmmm... and YEAH!

    Totally agreed. When he sees his work put, let's say, "to work" in such a fine model, knowing that ZEALOT-ians are very careful about giving everyone their proper credit, I don't think he'll say no.
    More pics, please!:mrgreen::mrgreen::cool:

    That's a good idea. :thumb: Maybe another "special edition" for him, too. :twisted:
