Full-Body Jet Fighter Pilots
I have been talking with Rocco about distributing these pilot figures within the US, and I wanted to get some consumer feedback before either of us make a large investment.
So take a look at the video below and let me know what you all think.
Is there a market for full-body, full resin, hand painted pilots?
They weigh 58 grams, 120mm high, 45mm wide.
Any and all feedback is appreciated
Pictures do not do this pilot full justice. The level of detail and texture on this is outstanding. Metal buckles shine, shoe laces are in place, one can even see and feel the stitching on the harness. Pens are in place on the arm (shoulder) pocket, gun is holstered, flight map on lap, etc.
Depending on the level of response, the first batch of pilots should be ready to ship before April; and these pilots will be available at SEFF.

These look nice, would be good to know the "sitting height" ie: from butt to top of helmet and projected price.
Just a passing impression from years in the cockpit.........we never sat bolt upright against the seat like these guys, rather we were leaning slightly forward with head and shoulders not back against the headrest. So for a more realistic "look" they need to be leaning a bit forward.....
(Look at inflight shots of real fighters)
The posture on so many of the pilots in the cockpit of guys models look like they have assumed the brace for ejection.....

That is exactly the size I've been looking for. Consider me in. Will you post a link to the sales page/website when you are ready?

Mike is correct, stiff as his ex-wife (j/k)
Perhaps it might be possible with a newer design, but these are not articulated.
I am currently working on the sales page now, will be up and going by the end of today and I will post links
