Default Warrior Poll: dark windows or not?

If I made a few inexpensive yet highly detailed 5" Vipers, would you want the FX version with dark windows, or a slightly more expensive one with a visible pilot in the cockpit?

Funny, but since I've been working on my various Revell kits, I've come to really like the look of the dark windows!


It looks so... in space!


Opinions?

Where's the poll, and why is it called my poll?

It's informal, and I can't help that it's your name as well!!!

So, care to input? Or do you already have all the excellent Vipers you'll ever need?
Maybe I'll just make both... but I'll zoom around the dark window one mostly myself- *makes turbo sound*

Well... i'd say the clear but with a slight tint to them. After all, we did see the pilots in the cockpits.

I say dark. Unless you plan to detail the cockpit. If your detailing the cockpit, then go with the tinted glass.

If I tint the glass, the cockpit detail won't really matter much. It'd be basically right, but, like, you wouldn't even be able to see the pilot's display screen...
Still, I like the idea that it'd look mostly black from a distance, yet be semi-clear close up so you could see a pilot! I think I'll go with that if no one has a better argument any other way.
