    I've been building the deago falcon and I am digging the overall look of the model. But there's one thing that's been driving me nuts,the cockpit. It looks good but I would rather have an accurate prop,the 32 inch Falcons cockpit looked nothing like they supply. Does anybody know which parts were used to kitbashed the cockpit?or is there anyone that could 3D print an accurate cockpit?also the han solo and chewy figures they used,does anyone know were there from?

    Hi Steven,
    I'm wanting to do the same.
    There was a really good thread on recreating the cockpit here https://www.therpf.com/showthread.ph...=1#post3803879
    Unfortunately most of the pictures are gone now but reading through you might still pick-up on the important details.
    The main kit used for the original studio 32" cockpit was the Monogram 1/48 B-17G Flying Fortress http://modelingmadness.com/review/al...s/brunob17.htm
    Can't recall if you'll find info on the figures there though.

    They’re looking for the actual model parts used in the 32”er cockpit. Not something that looks like the set.

    I’m also interested in maybe making the studio model cockpit. Maybe.

    I hope I'm not out of line in doing this but here are a few of the photos from that old thread on recreating the 32" cockpit.
    They're not mine but I don't have any way of contacting the OP to ask permission. However I'm reposting them here just to share info with anyone wanting to do an accurate recreation themselves and show how the original was probably laid out.

    Thanks for sharing those. Reference doesn’t get any better than that. The B-17 IP is above the door. I think the gray parts might also be from it too. Those are barrel-less 50 cal guns from it resting on the window sill.

    Eduard do a photo etch for the Monogram B-17 cockpit if you want to go extra fine with the detail.

    I just got one myself, well ordered it. they're having a sale till 11-20-17...buy the whole kit at once for 1199.99. couldn't pass it up though I had before when it was the subscription thing and came out to 400-500 more. Now I won't feel so bad about buying the Shapeways goodies. I've already picked out like 1200 bucks work of stuff I'd like to have, and it's looking like 900 of that is must have. Of course since I don't have the kit yet, I can't say for sure yet what I'll want to replace.
