Thank every one for the info
Yes "GOOP" is the name brand just like "Kleenex". There are several different types. Houshold or Crafters should work well. It dries a little flexible like silocon. Be carefull though it will eat foam, white bead or depron as it is acetone based. Silicone will not attack foam if that is what you are worried about. Silicone also has a higher viscosity so it will not run like "Goop" will. I like to insert a plywood plate with a 4-40 blind nit into each shoulder of your type of pilot then use bolts and silicone or goop to secure the pilot.

If you have one of the lightweight all white foam pilots from 3W I ussully use a 1/4" wood dowl and just driill up from the bottom of the pilot to half way to the shoulder. I then do one right in the middle of the pilot that extends all the way up through his neck into the head. The neck snapping thing is verry prone with these light weight foam type pilots.

Hey Bill, did you not notice that the pilot is already wearing his shoulder harness...yes, just ask at CT for 'Goop' that is the name on the label.
