the problem with GI Joe, is except for the original that looked like a WWII grunt, most of the GI Joes I seen where based on more advanced tech. then WWII era pilots!

I had a astronuat GI and a jet pilot one, but none of the WWII fighter style! so good luck with that one!

Look for Dragon, Blue Box International, etc, figures.

Historic Aviation may have something for you. http://www.historicaviation.com/index.po

You'll have to dig around on that site, but I've purchased 3 nice pilots from them, over the years.

I didn't notice any today, but the RCU marketplace frequently has pilots listed, that would be suitable for your model.

You'll want 12" figures.

After Christmas, Tot'R'Us frequently has action figures on sale. Some are suitable for our usage. Get there early. They get picked over, fast !

Hangar 9 uses a lightweight pilot for it's Taylorcraft. Remove the jacket and there's a mae- west underneath. No helmet, but light and affordable.
