Servo Assist?

Having worked in the commercial aviation industry for a good portion of my adult life up to and including 747 jumbo jets I've yet to see control columns as robust as these on the Thunderhawk so my supposition is that the servo assists are actually in the control columns. Cumbersome but viable I suppose.

I was hoping that the cockpit paraphenalia would disguise the fact that the pilots had no legs (being actually Rhino machinegunners) but no such luck.

So I need a rational as to why they are lower extremity deficient.........

Could you make them look like servitors? SM have a ban on AI so they use human minds as machines all the time. Could make them look like part of the ship.

@Blackadder , you could use the premise of wounded marines, no longer able for front line service, but not badly wounded enough to be interned in a dreadnought, being used to pilot crafts such as the thunderhawk.

I think that would work for you Blackadder. Also, exactly what I thought of when I read the leg problem.

The Misery Compromise

After a futile attempt to garner a set of legs from my bitz box I settled on purchasing a landspeeder cockpit on ebay. What strikes me the most is the near miss I made regarding the scale of the cockpit accoutrements

With very little adjustments at all it will be child's play to reassemble the cockpit with gen-u-wine FW artifacts; a source of great personal satisfaction to me.

While I have the cockpit in pieces perhaps I'll indulge myself in a bit of pre-assembly painting....

Whoops but first I'd better file down the sprue attachment residue

Department of Redundancy Department:

Enough Blackadder enough! Too many images of virtually the same thing but ahh; subtly not......

Micro variations that only I can perceive are happening and rather than a flurry of un recorded activity I'll bore you with incessant detailed updates. :D

The new cockpit revamped from the old fits much better under the canopy and the figures will be seen better duplicating the FW version....

The straight on shot reveals the fit of the landspeeder crew is a dead on duplicate of the resin original.

You'll never bore us with detail, it is why we love your plogs!

Rule of the Incredibly Small:

I seem to be going to a lot of trouble with an interior that no one will be able to appreciate fully but there is a bit of fun in testing my limits besides which I wasn't even aware that FW included all this detail in their cockpit before I began researching it.

http://i.imgur.com/EeS6h17.jpg


This first image overexposed as it is tries to give a hint of the just finished center and side consoles.

This next image show the detail better; I tried to replicate the FW center control panel to varying degrees of success.....

http://i.imgur.com/vRpZBHi.jpg


This next shot is more like itshowing the computer monitors and control buttons....

Over the shoulder view where I will be applying paper green cutouts for the cockpit displays.

Finally, a front end shot showing the beautifully details pilot seats that no one gets to see after the crew is glued in.

I may just magnetize their little bottoms :D
