Recommended Posts

Posted (edited)

Looking for aftermarket pilot and gunner figures to add to the excellent Academy AH-1Z kit.

 

Your recommendations are appreciated!

The figures really do look nice! Especially the seated pilot.

I do find it a bit odd to have a mix of standing and sitting pilots in the same figure set though.

Defmodel casting quality is top notch on my armor stuff. I just preordered the gun barrels and seated pilots from Luckymodel

Waiting for my DEF Model set then I'll start building mine - inflight of course!

 

BTW, there's a build group on Facebook that covers all these issues, has all the aftermarket vendors and scratchbuilders there with several WIP and LOTS of reference photos....

Not correct for the AH-1Z......different time period, helmet and flight gear.

I just wish someone would do a set a correct set of seats with something resembling seat cushions and belts. Thanks.

Thanks, everyone!



 I should probably thank you for bringing this topic up!  I had no clue that a specific seated Zulu crew even existed.

5 minutes of work using adhesive plaster +15 minutes for PE seat belts... no real need for aftermarket in this case. The def.Model figures come with separate PE belts btw.
