The first batch 10 piece pototype (not yet painting version ) .it is 1/7 size .the product will post to website about 10 days . But you can pre-order it , it is soft plastic and easy painting , use the Tamiya paint (for r/c car body) .I think is PS paint . (For soft plastic ) . The pilot kit are included two head . civil with head set and no head set but next head are for helmet , and the helmet have a movable sun cover !, the hand are possible adjust the angle in the shoulder . head are rotate possible .

Today let you see the products of the 1/7 pilot , you can order now ! the white colour is the 1/7 products , it is not yet paint , the first batch are white and let you paint your colour . the coming out will have orange /red /blue and special request ! the smaller size one is the master plug for the 1/8 size . so it can not sell you in this moment , it is for make the mold . but come out very soon i think next month ! . so this two size can cover 80% scale fuselage in the market , especial from 550 size to 700 size . The coming 1/10 size will cover all the 500 to 550 size . So i can let all the size models fuselage have their pilot .Possible come out the 450 size (1/12 ) in the end of the year ! But it now
