I'm a fan of the real deal. Especially in a scale model.

Pilot that came with the GP Camel. The goggles were originally black. I repainted with skin color and added eyes and epoxy on the goggles.

Depends on the bird. My WWI stuff has real versions, my odd ball birds get cartoons.
And my WWII all now have the "Duke" John Wayne in them. Well except for my old Tuskegee Mustang version, it got a correct pilot for it.

Meet 'Cedric Courageous' from UK based 'Pete's Pilots'

Sorry about the paint job - Cedric comes 'nekked', and painting isn't my strong suite. Cedric now comes painted, to save Pete any more embarassement!

Peter Richardson does them - he's an artist as well as an aeromodeller. Has a store called, would you believe, 'Pete's Pilots' on E Bay:
http://www.ebay.com/itm/Fun-pilot-Ce...item3a64027681

Cedric fitted well into the office on my more or less not quite standard Speedy Bee and fits with the character of the model pretty well. There is a rumour that he's modelled after 1950s and 60s British comedian Terry-Thomas.

If it was a scale model, I would take the office manager's post far more seriously

Honest...

D

One of our club members put the spiked helmet on Sylvester for me in the DR1. This one I'm still working on with the propeller on his beany. Should take off vertically when I get him working right and he quits complaining just because every landing is a face plant Test flew him at the field a couple of days ago. The one in the Cap 10B looks a little cooler. Pizza box pilot doesn't think to much of my flying.

I have a scale in my MX2, but if I could find a PUG head, that would be it!

Typical two-part pilot. Going into my Albatros, didn't spend a lot of time detailing him until I test the model (old Simprop kit).
