Let's see your pilots!


Hi all -
I've been trying to come up with ideas for a pilot for my TM.
I need some inspiration!
Please post pics of your pilots here.
Thanks -
I've been leaning towards Mr. Burns w/ Smithers in the front (The Simpsons).
But, I haven't found any good profile pics of them yet.

I fly Parkflyers now and have always felt that a good looking pilot, especially in an open cockpit or under a 'bubble' canopy is important. There isn't a whole lot out there for 1/12, 1"=1' scale that parkflyers tend to be. So I kit bashed a couple of my own.
Started out with standard 1/12 Williams Bros bust:

I learned a long time ago that if you cut the pilots head off and turn it a bit it gives a more realistic look.

Took same Williams Bros bust and since the weather won't let me fly and a new kit hasn't arrived and the holidays are coming I "created" a Santa.

He'll go in the front seat of my TigerMoth. The back seat has a more or less standard Williams Bros that I painted >20 yrs ago.

After many flights my alien buddies have managed to keep me out of trouble.
I cannot claim the idea as my own. I bought the Tiger Moth as is with Focus4, batteries and charger as my step up plane from a Firebird XL.

South Park Stan!

Toy shops & carboot sales are an endless source of impressive pilots.

Good stuff... keep 'em coming.
I gotta look through some of my boxes of old 'junk' in my mom's basement.
There might be some old action figures in there.
I could never paint up one of those busts like DW did...
That Santa is amazing.
Does the guy with the Yankees hat look much like you?

Nice job DW Those Williams pilot bust figures are readily adaptable and can be made up into a good likeness. Here's one that my pal Kev Mullarkey made for his Fournier (take a look at Tim Hooper's Walsall event report if you want to check how good a likeness it is).
