Someone over at Colonial Fleets showed the entire layout of the cockpit and all switches and seat, I mean everythin was coverd, and expertly done. But I can't find it or who did it. But you can P.M. me andx I can e-mail you pics.
Does anyone know who the awesome artist is that did this?

Most of the "pilot in cockpit" shots were done on this little "forced perspective" Viper, which sort of resembles a kiddie ride. In these scenes it's being used as a "simulator" to train new pilots.




Note how the canopy and "engines" all tip back together... this was never intended to be seen on screen, obviously.



Here the fullsize Viper and forced-perspective cockpit are both on the screen at the same time... another "unintended" setup.

Yup... I was always boggled at why they let that last shot slip through in production.

The bottom of the ribcage of the FP Viper is plainly visible.

Of course, in the show (Take the Celestra), Apollo and Starbuck are going to the "electronics ship" for "repairs". Maybe THIS is what needs repairing.. LOL..

But seriously, how much more would it have cost them to just tack a piece of paper onto that section and draw some panel lines on with a sharpie? I know they were rushed in production, but JEEPERS.. LOL

Nice screencaps, talk about ruining the illusion,... wow how beautiful is Maren Jensen I was getting flashbacks to being 14 years old again, the ships weren't the only reason I watched the show. :love
