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.
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.
