Armored Cockpit For The 28mm Viper Suit

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.
