Pilot Caricature Figures That Look Like You!


PilotPortraits© That Look Like You Or Your Favorite Fictional Character.

Over 150 made and distributed World Wide

You've always wanted to 'pilot' your own airplane... NOW YOU CAN! Just provide digital photos of yourself and follow the simple guide below:

1- Measure the area within your cockpit from the canopy floor to the top of the clear canopy where your pilot will sit.

2- Measure the width of the canopy floor from left to right making sure this is the exact area where you will mount your pilot.

3- Provide 4 digital photos (jpegs) of the person who will be carved in balsa: one of the front of the face; one of the left side of the face; one of the right side of the face. Finally, one of the back of the head.

4- Stipultate whether your radio control plane is 1/6 scale, 1/5 scale, quarter scale, 27%, 30%, 33%, 35%, 40%, etc.

PilotPortraits© carved from balsa to look like YOU or your favorite fictional character.

Every pilot is hand-crafted by Mike Brent, a professional illustrator and fine artist. Mike is an avid radio control enthusiast and knows what you want for your R/C model aircraft.

The process is described in detail within the ad. I carve everything by hand and from balsa.

3D printing uses plastic as a material, unpainted and heavy.
