Custom Pilot Figures

custom pilot figures

First I took a picture that my wife took of me and the twins.

Then I cut out the girls individually.

Next I had to flip one so they would both be facing the same way.

The next step was to merger both girls together.

Then make the new picture level.

Then make a copy and flip the 2nd image

Then print it and cut it out.

I used a Dremel tool to cut up a CD case and used two sided servo tape to attach the cut outs to the plastic. I left 2 sharp points of plastic sticking out the bottom and used that to poke holes in the foam cockpit. I used a toothpick for the pilot's control stick (colored with a magic marker) and finally I used hot glue to secure it all together.

I love it!

It would make crashes more traumatic, though!

No, but they're pretty good pilots...better than I am anyway.

P.S. I saw your post in my other thread about selling your XPS stuff, I still haven't decided what I'm going to do so for now I'll pass. Thanks anyway.
