P-51D: WW II British Pilot & Canopy Mod!

"Goofie" Had to Go!

As Tony/LiCobra said in an early post "the supplied pilot looks more like the robot in "I Robot"....He has since been up-dated to a character from "Avatar"....I call him "Goofie!"

I couldn't agree more, so I followed Tom Hunt's Pilot/Canopy mod, and did the same thing. Instead of tinting the canopy blue as Tom did, I wanted a smoked effect to mine.

The WWII British Pilot. He measures 74mmW v 73mmH.

The WWII American Pilot. He measures 74mmW v 73mmH too.

The Canopy.

NOTE: While doing this mod I also repainted the cockpit with Dupli-Color Smoke, and trimmed the dash, seat & the block on the shelf behind the seat with Dupli-Color Wedgewood.

UP-DATE 10/28/2010:I found this link to a really kewl 360dg pan view from the cockpit of a P-51, courtesy of St. Clair Photo Imaging.,

UP-DATE 8/17/2010: Here is the WWII British Pilot along side his buddy the WWII American Pilot w/"Goofie" in the background.
