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.

Nauga,

Dave,

Did you ever use the 2 pilots I gave you when you made my wing for the Dauntless?

If not, ... you could modify them real easy, ... Or maybe you need a few extra heads to play with.

I haven't used them yet but they are both committed to a project. I'm always on the lookout for pilots though, and good jet dudes are hard to find.

Nauga,
who also needs one with a 1/12-scale hefty bag pulled over its head

I have a 1/8 scale bust just laying around waiting to be finished maybe I could put a helmet on him and give him a mask. I will post a pic of him when tonight.

I should do some clarifying about the scale size of my pilots. I say 1.12 but to some peoples standards it would be to big for 1.12. I guess i should really start saying 1/11 but he can fit in anything from 1/10 to 1/12 the smaller one pilot that is. Also here is a pic of the finishes RAF Battle of Britain Pilot, the mask does come separate . Thanks for all your comments everyone! Also post a pic of a contemporary jet pilot for some reference photos if you guys don't mind, Thanks again!

Twist my arm This is early '90's gear, helmets and masks have changed a little but this is the type I'm most interested in.

Nauga,
and his lucky shot

Bill the face of the pilot is of magic-sculpt. The rest of the figure is of a epoxy resin. Not sure of what it is called.

Nauga thanks for the pic!

I have not posted here lately to show three new pilots I added. A 1/12 US Marines/Navy who is supposed to look like pappy boyington. A 1/8 USAAF bust and full body the full body came out amazing. And a 1/8 German Luftwaffe Pilot. Just PM me if anyone is interested. Still lots of pilots to do.

WOW! They look great. I would be very interested in a 1/9 or 1/10 th scale modern day jet fighter pilot. From the bust up would work for me.

I may be in error on this but I don't think he is presently making the pilots (our loss). Believe web site was scalepilotsUSA. You might try a PM.
