First thing tanguy did was draw up a plan of what the Cockpit should look like.
But how big should it be to be in scale with the figures?

Tanguy told me he used Legos to find the perfect scale for the console and placement of the figures. I think this is a cool way to get dimensions before cutting your foamcore.

Here is a better view from the side showing how far apart each figure needs to be and the size of the Center Console. Long live Lego's :)

From the Lego's dimensions, Tanguy calculated a 16 cm radius.

This is the "Spinal Chord" support for the Chairs.
Cut out from cardbord. They will be glued to the backs of the 2 Sculpey sections

A close up of Han's Chair. Also made of Sculpey.
It is a different style then the tall versions that are for the passengers.

Making more copies can be tedious but look cool in the long run.

Here is the Cockpit's Center Console. Made of Foamcore and assemble with a hot glue gun.
Chewbacca and Han Solo's Chairs go on either side of this shape.

Here is another angle of the Console. Shouldn't be too hard to copy.
