Doug,
Thanks for the shots, this is exactly what I had in mind. With the motors located in this area, space is limited. I used burgandy vinyl for my seats so the couch will follow the same color. The furniture should go together ok. I have some walnut and mahogany sheets to make them out of.

Frank,
I made the whole stateroom removable as the gel cell and all the terminal blocks and esc's are under it. The motors are on the aft side of the bulkhead under the rear deck. The couch was carved out of balsa blocks as was the coffee table. As I said before nothing fancy just enough to give the impression. When the cabin is in place it is very effective. It depends how much time and effort you want to put to the project . Have fun with it.

Later

Latest photos. I did a burnished dash with J-Tec gauges. Made the controls out of leftover parts and some pins. Portholes are glued in ready for paint. I built a interior that uses magnets to hold it in place. Photos later.

Started painting. Stateroom finished sans table junk- light,books, etc. Got my stuff from Mack Marine- lights, some machined fittings and other stuff.

Thanks for the replies. The floor covering is from Hobby Lobby- craft store- it is a thin foam sheet available in several colors. Works well for carpet. The dash is scrap aluminum sheet and I used steel wool taped to a piece of dowel rod chucked in a drill to do the turning. Gauges are from J-Tek- airplane section of LHS. They are for 1/12'' scale- 5/32 and 1/4'' dia. They are available in many sizes.
