    This is the tube one, the hard one, the one everyone wants, but few build. Understandably. :)

    This is one that is on my "TO BUILD" list. I am wanting to build a cockpit interior for it though.

    Why you say things like this? Now you have triggered the bomb... my brain is buzzing... I can see the consoles take shape behind the triangle windows...

    No! You definitely shouldn't say things like this when I'm around... ;)

    Well, my good friend, if you wish to design a cockpit interior as an "add-on" kit, I would be more than willing to beta test build it for you! :Drinks:
    I think that you would do a far better job at designing it than I would. thumbsup

    Well, that looks like there is plenty of reference material to start with Tonino! ;)

    I'm only thinking about the possibility to actually put all those consoles in the real "head" internal volume.
    I mean: it's obvious that the shots were taken in a studio arranged in a way to look like the inside of an eagle spaceship but the shape and the plenty of space you see in the movie seems to me pretty different from the little space between the access door in rear bulkhead and the front windows. Perhaps it's only an impression, I didn't take measurements...

    @Tonino You are right, th
    True, however, I am good at beta test building! :)Ask @Revell-Fan :)
    I know that I seriously need to learn how to design.

    You shouldn't make yourself smaller than you really are, my friend! ;)

    A cockpit interior for the Eagle would be great but how do you think would you see it from the outside? The windows are completely black. The original miniatures did not have a CI at all.

    The only way I could imagine would be a 1:18 or so version of the head with a break-away feature to look inside, much like Tonino's space shuttle cockpit. :)

    Nevertheless, there is a Space 1999 build on my list. A 1:6 version of Brian, the robot. He is called "Marcel" in the French dubbed version, so it's an obligation to make him.;)
