Hi

 

Now that we get close to the 100 years of the Royal air Force (1st of April, 1918), here is a RAF fighter pilot 25 years later, smoking his pipe (gears 1943 and later)

The deck-chair frames are to assemble (9 pieces) with the addition of pivots in stretched sprues

 

So far, this figure is available in 1/35 and 1/32 only. I'm looking for a photoetched supplier for the 1/48 and 1/72 scale versions, for the frames. All indication on a good suplier is welcome

 

cheers

Norbert

Hi

and an additional picture with one of our former RAF pilot, that shows better the lether helmet, goggles and oxygen mask on the chest :

that is amazing wish i had the skills to paint it

Many thanks, you probably have the skills to paint a figure, you need a bit of technic and a bit of time.

I tried to show how to paint one since I was asked for it on another topic :

However, by lack of time, my progress is very slow

Hi
Next figure is an USAAF pilot, in summer flight suit, A2 leatherflight jacket , A-11 helmet and Mk VIII goggles:
 

cheers
Norbert

 

 

That looks great! Is this kind of flight gear also suitable for a Pacific based USAAF pilot?

 

If so, that is exactly what I was waiting for to complement my P-51.

 

Now I am waiting for a present day USAF pilot in flight gear for my F-16 ;-)

Hi Markus, you get the answer on ARC (the pilot is europe based, just because of the Mk VIII goggles)

 

Hope to progress modern US side, but had more results modern russian side...
