You could not do better than having Warhead_71 do a figure for you, but as good as your craftmanship is, I wouldn't be surprised if you turned out an excellent pilot figure by your own effort. Even though my own efforts are a bit commical compared to Warhead_71, I found carving a one off blue foam pilot,"Nigel," for my Dragon Rapide to be a very enjoyable part of the build.

I have also attached a really excellent article on figure painting. The part on painting eyes is a must read. The whole thing is really worth looking at.
