    Thanks for the kind words guys! :wave:

    Cockpit textured. RB, I just know you're gonna layer the bedgeezus out of it... :twisted:

    Sadly reference material on the cockpit is really scarce, so a lot of creative licensing. I did try to stay close wherever I could.

    I'll run through the DVD sets and see if I can take some useful screencaps for you.

    Thanks RF, I actually did load up the dvd's to get refs... (got some nice Wilma Deering screengrabs too...:twisted::twisted::twisted:)

    Anyone else see a mistake between the exterior and interior shots of the shuttle? Look closely at the front window... lol the cheating that goes on in SF is sometimes fun to notice.sign1

    The aforementioned 'Wilma's are acceptable.

    But this one was the bi(a)tch.......

    TC, if you keep up your intricate work, you could up-scale this thing and it would be structurally sound enough to withstand the forces of nature, to FLY!!!:mrgreen:
