    Hello all,

    I am rediscovering the joys of paper modeling and came across Uhu's 2001: A Space Odyssey models ( Thank you sir).

    Anyways, I am building the EVA pod and I seem to be missing the seat. There is a note about the seat on the "instructions" PDF but it is in Japanese and cannot figure it out.

    Any assistance is appreciated.

    It is on "spacepod 1.pdf ", parts #27, #28, #29. It's in with the cockpit section, which is what that .pdf is, the inside of the cockpit section. :)

    Pieces 27, 28, and 29 make up the left hand control grip.

    I'm sorry, it's on Page 8. Lower right hard corner. The back is attached upside down to it.

    Thanks fir the help! It happened that I missed printing out a page and the seat was on that page.

    From every thing I have seen the seat in Uhu's model is placed on the floor. This didn't look quite right to me so I put it on a small pedestal (about 8mm high). Here are some pics...

    Just a thought, because of the way I have seen so many aircraft made, there may have been foot wells inside the pod. The Pilot could easily, in a zero "G" environment, just go straight in or right up to enter and egress. This would optimize interior space. Just an observation. Either way, Nice job!!
