And here are two videos (quickie tests) of my Colonial Viper.
The first one, in space, is a smaller version of the Viper, for those distant combat and flight shots. There's a smaller pilot in there, with a bare-bones cockpit, so it doesn't look like the ship is flying itself.
And this is the larger, actor-scaled Colonial Viper for close ups. She has a full fledged cockpit (which was part of the Starship Construction pack from Reallusion.) As soon as I learn how to script animations for iProps, I'll make a more accurate canopy, but for now, this one suits the purpose just fine.
