Wanna Build Your Own Viper Cockpit?

Seriously. You know you want to.
Well, you’re in luck because next week, we’re going to auction art for Viper Mk VII cockpit concept and full-size cockpit panels. (Can I get a “So say we all”?) An enterprising fan could snap these puppies up and start construction ASAP.
It’s no secret the art department tweaked aspects of Battlestar Galactica‘s design as the seasons progressed. For example, you’ve probably noticed differences between the Miniseries helmets and the 2.5 versions, as well as the clamshell blasters and FN-5.7 pistols.
You may not have noticed, however, the interior Viper Mk VII cockpit was redesigned starting with the Second Season episode “Scar.”
And the artwork for these cockpit panels are GI-NORMOUS!!! The largest pair are 2 feet by 6.8 feet apiece.
Translation: make sure there’s enough room in your garage ‘cause you’re gonna need it.
“So say we all!”
