Pilot Busts 1/8 Scale and 1/12 Scale


Hey everyone,
I recently started my own line of pilots, and I had been posting them over in the electric warbird section when a slope flyer told me to post over here.

Ok first one is the 1/12 bust. He is based on a WWII USAAF pilot. He is a solid cast but still weighs under an ounce. I get 25g. on my scale. He comes with a separate oxygen mask so there are more options for the modeler. Cost is $12 + $4 S&H

Second one is a 1/8 waist up based off a WWII US Navy pilot. This one is a semi hollow cast and only weighs 26g. also. Cost is 18$ + $4 S&H

If anyone is interested you can PM me or go to my website to order. The website is awful but its just easier to order if I am not around for a couple days to respond to PMs. Thanks for looking!!! Oh I should mention that they come unpainted. Also if you buy more than one in an order shipping and handling is free

Matt

PS There will be more to come!

I need a bust of Sully....


Hi Matt,

Your pilots are great. I am looking for a bust of Sully in uniform with his hat. Do you have any plans
for one of him?

Thanks

Hey Carl,
Width is 44mm, Height is 48mm. They are cast from a lightweight liquid plastic called smooth on 305. They are a solid cast but still very lightweight, on my scale they weigh 25g. or 3/4 oz.

Joe a Sully bust would be cool not gonna lie. Maybe in the future that is something I could do, don't know the legal side of it though so that worry's me a tad bit.

Also here are some pics of the RAF pilot. He will also come with a oxy mask the is detachable.

Cheers,
Matt

It will be authentic given the way I fly!

I have a couple of these pilots and am in the process of painting the 1/12 scale one right now. Detail on these is amazing - right down to the zipper on the flight suit. You won't be sorry getting one. Jan

Matt,
Thanks for the info. I am building a 1/12 scale Avenger, and these might work really nice.
The pilots look good, and I like the weight too.
I can appreciate you offering these for sale, because good pilots are hard to come by.

I usuallly build in the 1/10 and 1/12 scale PSS planes...

If you offer a nice contemporary jet bust I'll size my models to fit them

Seriously, I'd take jet dudes in any common PSS scale, and I would pay a premium if some were twisted around hard and looking over their shoulders.

Maybe skip the pilot and canopy and stick in a piece of AL tube wrapped to look like an extended ejection seat cat gun? Or just an empty cockpit for the vintage stuff.
