Looking for 1/5 scale full body figures

Anyone out there have any manufacturers in North America for 1/5 scale full body figures, I am looking for male and female figures. Come on scale guys. Please do not advise of the ones manufactured in Europe for gliders as they happen to be a little too expensive before shipping.

Civilian pilot figures here.

Paint 'em up any way you want, make whatever hat and eyewear suits you.

Hi gjhinshaw, I do hope you are referring to FULL figures, I am looking for male AND female figures to put in a Stinson Reliant that has a full cabin. By the way, I saw a full figure on e-bay of what appears to be a WW2 pilot figure but from the write up it seems that it only have head, hands and feet and you have to make the torso and arms, legs etc out of material/cloth, quite a bit of sewing, and I do not like sewing nor does my wife, so though I am watching one of them I do not think I will be placing a bid. Anyway, I will still need to find a female figure.
I did find a guy that makes the size/variety needed in his spare time, but as they are made out of latex he does not wish to ship to Canada while the weather is around freezing as latex will break if frozen and is shaken/squeezed. I just have to wait a while now.
Anyone out there that wishes his e-mail (he does not have a web site), send me a PM or e-mail. He does make in sizes other than 1/5 scale.

Hello,

One of the guys had mentioned to me that someone was looking for "quality or good" figures. Tell ya what. A guy that in our forum "RC Karts large scale" named/ID Ren Dielo makes them. Forgive me if I spelt his name wrong. He does wonders and very talented rc driver and figure builder. His work is very detailed, skilled and uses light weight materials for his figures. See if you can locate him and his talents in our large scale forum group for rc karts or search him under Delio or similar spelling. Like I said, he does great work!

Here is Ron's site: http://premierpilots.net/

To my knowledge he is not the manufacturer, though.

Ron's service is excellent, and he's honest.

I was charged standard shipping on a small item. He emailed me and refunded some money.
