One of the biggest critiques I have heard over the years about the Variable Payload Raider, or Viper, Suit, I sculpted for Rebel Miniatures has always been the glass cockpit.
Folk thought that a combat unit should have something more rugged. Well, the Viper was originally envisioned as a civilian/utility model that was pressed into military service, but that's beside the point.
Now that I'm redesigning the Viper Suit for 28mm, I decided to make an armored cockpit, with sensors poking out of the armored overlay.
Here's some pics...
And here are some side-by-side comparison shots of the two cockpits.
I like the effect. I start printing this weekend. Stay tuned.
