What about this....Order yourself another one to build complete. Make a new base, to display both of them on. Take the one you have with the missing cockpit, and make it a battle damaged one, like it just got massively hit. Do more damage to the center hull area, damage one of the solar arrays maybe as well, have it in some awkward position on the base like it's spinning wildly out of control into space...? Use some fine guitar string to attach some pieces flying off it with. (they will actually "wiggle" with just the slightest vibration. I've done this...) I know it's an expensive little kit to kill, but you could save it and still do something productive as well!
How the hell did you loose the cockpit? LOL!! It IS small.....Time to clean off your work area! (hey, it might turn up!) If you have a cat or dog, check the litter box or in the back yard..:tongue:
