I am building an Astro Hog, the drawing tell me that the pilot is 2.125".
The pilots on Great hobby are for 1/3 or other, what would be tehe equivalent for a 2.125" pilot

Re: Pilot

You could just go with a small toy (probably cut the poor fellow in half) that "looks about right".

Or if you must use a close replica, find out what scale your plane is compared to the real one (or something similar) and apply that scale to a 5'6 or so person.

For a 40 size plane, it's not really all that important considering some people use trolls or GI Joe's as pilots . I know with my somthin' extra I cut Joe in half and he had a bazooka on his shoulder in the cockpit.

Hate to think if he had to fire it but it was different
