Hi

Does anyone know a good source for scale pilots? It seems like everything I have found on the web is for 1/6th (Gi-Joe) size and larger. :confused:

Hi Heinrich
I am just thinking about making pilots for people who want em because of exactly the reason you are talking about.

before i start what are you looking for.
what size, what era, what nationality, what body (bust, torso with/ without arms, full body)

i posted a couple of pics of the molds for a couple i have already done in my gallery cos i cant work out how to get em on here.

cheers

Have you looked at Pete's pilots, it is a UK based company who produce very realistic pilots in all scale sizes:rolleyes:

These are 12" pilots for 1/5 and 1/6 scale. Awesome looks, very expensive. Probably not what your looking for but if you do a giant scale these would be great.:D

One scale electric I built was 1/24 scale so I used some drivers from plastic car kits. All I had to do was give them head transplants to remove the full face helmets. - John.

Heres one. Just tell them the scale, era(ww1/ww2) , full , bust, type (military/civilian), etc and they make it.

Hobby Lobby has a good selection of pilot figures. Also, go to Walmart, Kmart etc. in the toy section. I have found figures there too that with a little imaginative alteration can be quite unique as pilots.

I have made pilots from separate pieces of soft balsa carved, dremeled, and sanded, then CYA glued in whatever position is needed, finally sanded then painted. They don't look perfect but you can take pride in having done it yourself.

My flying buddy has had his grand daughter take a photo of him on her digital, load it in her computer print it out at a suitable size,:rolleyes: left and right side, then he uses this as his pilot. it looks great:p :D :D
