P1408 - 1/4 Scale Fully Articulated Full or Partial Body Pilot

This fully articulated 1/4 scale pilot will fit most 1/4 scale early jets such as the de Havilland Vampire. It was made for an ex-RAF pilot who flew DH Vampires, based on photographs of himself to get the look just right.

Using a mixture of hard and soft foam (rigid for the torso and flexible for the limbs) it is stable but flexible enough to fit into most cockpits and can be painted and dressed to suit most looks. Clothing is hand made to your requirements and typically includes llife jacket, flight suit, shoes, gloved hands and an oxygen pipe.

Options include:
  • flexible foam torso (great for bucket seats)
  • animated head movement
  • unpainted
  • reduced seat to head (crown) height to help fit pilots to models with cramped cockpits, or where the seat height is higher than scale. Clothing will be shortened accordingly
  • half / partial body versions. These can be supplied cut to length or supplied as waist-up so the modeller can trim the foam (and coat) to length.
  • Anything else - please ask!
