1/8 WWII German Fighter Pilot
 
4 Attachment(s)
Added another pilot to my pilot line this makes #4!! He is a Luftwaffe fighter pilot. He will be a hollow cast and weighs in just over an ounce. He also comes with a mask that is detachable. Cost is $18 and $4 for shipping. Should fit great in the FMS Stuka, FW 190 and the 109. PM me if interested I do not have him up on the website yet. You can shoot me a email too if you would like mpschofield@gmail.com

Hi Matt,

please note that the FMS Stuka has a different, smaller scale than the FW190 and the Bf109...

The original Bf109 had a span of about 10m, while the FW190 had a span of 10.5m, so they are very close together in scale, both models having a span of 1.4m...

The Ju-87 G-2 however had a span of 15m... still the model comes with a span of 1.4m, the same span as the Bf109 and the FW190.

That means that the scale of the Bf109 and the FW190 is about 1:7.2-7.5, while the scale of the Stuka is 1:10.7

At 1:8, the pilot might be a bit large for the Stuka cockpit... does it fit in there?
Should be right for the 190 and 109 though...

Thanks for bringing these to us!!!

Cheers,
Bernhard

Matt
I'd like a 1/8th scale German or two. Your website does not seem to be available. is that a temporary thing?

Thanks
