Blacktron II style bubble canopy

If you need a SNOT version of the Blacktron II style bubble canopy, this might come in handy. The side panels and the pilot's seat are attached by using 1x1 bricks with stud on one side.

Ohh, a nice looking cockpit. being a fan of Blacktron, I might have to give this a try. I think this style has room for width expansion easily, whish is a plus over the original design. The control handles are also quite good.

I agree. If life ever lets me get back to building, I'll have to give this a try.

Good idea, I hadn't even thought of that. Should be easy to make a two-seater version by using three middle panels.

Exactly what I had in mind! That is one of the best things about these cockpits. It can be expended easily enough. Heck, my 120 stud long SHIP has this design to an extent.
