These plans should be of help to anyone who wants to build their own Runabout cockpit in cg or as a physical build. I think the set is ideal for fan films, and if anyone builds a set from these plans, I would love to know.
There are a few people to thank for this project:
- Lt. Washburn for research into Runabout seats, feedback, proof-reading, error checking and suggested improvements. I feel these plans would not be as polished without his help over the past year.
- Tadeo D'Oria (tadeodoria.com/) for 3D modelling the Runabout car seats. My own modelling skills weren't up to the task, and Tadeo was very kind to model this. Check out his site for his amazing work.
- Jörg Hillebrand and Bernd Schneider for their excellent research into the evolution of the Runabout interior over the seasons. (www.ex-astris-scientia.org/inc… ). Ex astris scientia is an excellent reference site run by Bernd Schneider.

I just wanted to congratulate you on yet another excellent piece of work. This document is so well put together and must have taken some hard work and a lot of time. Thanks for sharing it with us. I have just used it as a reference for doing a runabout cockpit interior and it was of tremendous help to see how everything was put together. Very well done!
Awesome work! Any chance you’d be willing to release the 3D model you used for the competed interior? I’m building one of the old AMT model kits and would like to 3D print an interior vs black the windows out.
Rick Sternbach designed the aeroshuttle to have the same front windows as the Runabout with the intent that the Runabout set would get reused for the aeroshuttle's cockpit.
That's why I'm excited for the resource. I've not delved into photo matching and I don't have the time to learn right now so to have a good dimensioned set of prints is a huge deal to me.
Thanks again for the great work!
