EVA Pod

Here are some images of Moebius Models, Pargrafix, Yay Monsters 1/8 scale EVA Pod from the movie 2001 a space odyssey.
An excellent model over all though I did have a hard time fitting the two outer shell halves together.
There are some minor exterior details and one major interior detail that were missed from the kit. I added the exterior details but couldn't add the interior detail as I don't have enough information. What's missing is the bottom part of a Martin-Baker ejection seat with the side details. The problem is which seat. Maybe that's why it wasn't added in the kit.

From Wikipedia"
The EVA Pod is a fictional spacecraft used for extra-vehicular activity seen in the movie 2001: A Space Odyssey. The Jupiter spacecraft Discovery One carries three of these small, one-man maintenance vehicles. The craft has similarities with the in development FlexCraft for servicing NASA Deep Space Habitats.
The Pod appears briefly in the background in scenes from Star Wars: Episode I – The Phantom Menace (in Watto's junkyard) and Ready Player One (in Aech's garage) as tributes to the film.
