I'm building the UD41 right now, and I am wondering if anyone has a cockpit template for a model that would work, here. As you can see from my build so far, I'm kinda struggling with making one from scratch.

Well, other than the Lexx Moth, I don't see interiors on the Pileggi models, and it wouldn't really work for this.
Jon Leslie's site wasn't much help either, nor was Steve's paper models. On the Galactica models, I've seen interiors in builds, but they weren't evidently in the kits. Noturno Sukhoi has more figures than vehicles, but time to search there

I think Tekzo has your answer. He just finished the Type 99 Carrier in 1/35, myhobbycraft.blogspot.co.id/2016/04/type-99-labor-carrier-135-finished-model.html. Leaving off the steering wheel and reducing the scale, it should work, then print off some more panels from the UD41 for interior walls. You could check out some of his other models, and might want to take a look at Paper Replika if you need other ideas
There are no strangers in this world,only people I haven't embarrassed ... yet!
Thanks for the tips, all. I have also been playing around with stealing "panel-like) parts from the Derelict Information Center and I noticed a dash board on the Attack Floater that can work. Can't wait to check out these links:)
Thank you, Greypilgtim, that gives me some great ideas! I've had to stop the project for a while as the school year winds down, so now that I can look at it again I can tackle this issue. I'll post pictures soon of what I have so far:)

cowboyleland: I always thought Tirick was a little mad.

Vermin King: Really worn out tonight, so when I'm like that I just look for things I used to have, but don't any more. I got the Zippy models and am rebuilding my Tirick/TCF Gaming folder. How the heck would anyone build his 1/1000 Battletech mechs without enlarging

Toman: yea I have been. pretty cool project. I've done a few scratch builds like that but not as large. cutting individual stones or carving stones in foam sucks.

Vermin King: Anybody else following Mauther's home-made Playmobile castle build? Looks really good so far

cowboyleland: Good point. Maybe make the wing feathers seperately so that the wind could get through them?

squirmydad: We had two operators for the hawk though, one to carry the weight and the other to flap the wings.

squirmydad: Probably silk and dowels. I assisted in the construction of a giant hawk puppet for an indoor show, probably about the same size as that pegasus.

Vermin King: It's got to be really light. The article dealt with parade puppets. I don't think I'd want to be trying to control that in a stiff wind

lightning: that's a nice pegasus!

shep: Will it fly, if you move the wings fast enough?
