Star Wars Cockpit

I'm wondering if anyone can create a plug-in of a star wars type cockpit where the camera is looking at the face of the person. So basically it would be a shot of a chair with cockpit type stuff surrounding it. The other cockpit plug-ins are looking out the windshield, and that doesn't do much good for viewing who is in the cockpit.
Even if you don't have the plug-in, the raw pictures would do fine.
Here is an example of what i am looking for (without the pilot and zoomed out a bit)http://home.attbi.com/~methompson1/cockpit.gif
Thanks for any help.

If anyone is curently or is planning on making the cockpit plug-ins, or has any pictures, can you please speak up. I am working on a movie with fairly tight deadlines, and want to know if i should make the cockpit myself, or if other people are working on it. Thanks

I've been there a lot. Unfortunatly I don't have a good 3d program that can use the models. Thanks for the suggestion.

You're welcome. Get Blender for importing 3D mesh

I hope this isn't too off topic
I have Blender, but it won't import the meshs. Is there a certin file type it needs to be. (I thought Blender could only import it's own meshes) I tried importing an object the was a 3ds file, and it didn't work.

DigiSm89 - no offence, but something i have learnt is to keep quiet if u r not 100% sure, it can do more harm than good in some cases...
luckily in this case no harm was done...
blender can only import it's own meshes, i believe that the 3ds file is for 3ds max (NOTE: it has .3ds on the end
) thi is not a free program, but it is a worthy investment...
some free programs can run file types from http://www.3dcafe.com
but i have never tried it...

I own an older version of Truespace, but I cannot get many of the models to work. The texture maps get all screwed up and do not work.
That is the case with all of the cockpit models. Not many people at Sci-fi3d make models in Truespace, so i am kinda stuck.
ANYWAY... I had some sucess over in another post with getting a cockpit picture,
so I don't see any reason to continue posting here (unless someone has a way of getting the stupid models to work in truespace).
I will check out 3dcafe
I really like these emoticons

10 Tokens Reward! WANTED - Star Wars Cockpit backgound.
In the first page Lord Dugall said he had rendered a cockpit, and he offered to e-mail the picture to me and X. If you e-mail him about it I'm sure he can send it to you. Otherwise I will.

yeah, I'm pretty interested in the cockpit plugin. I'll see if I can reply to that topic.

It would be interesting to see more than just star wars cockpits, maybe just general space ship cockpits themselves.
