Pilots?
« on: May 02, 2020, 16:20:42 PM »
Anybody have any links on how to make your own pilots?
Need a 1/4 & 1/3 scale one (one modern, one vintage) and not paying the £100+!!!

Bill,

  I have a set of patterns for a 1/3 scale pilot, all we need is a seamstress here.   I have a set of latex heads, hands and boots if you know anyone who could copy them???

Give me a buzz on whatsapp if you have a chance and we can talk.

Hi Bill,

If you're still looking to carve a pilot there are some resources in the Hippocketaeronautics plans gallery.

You'll need to register to download anything, but there's plenty of food for thought in the hippocket plans gallery:
