I knew there was a 12 in there somewhere. I guess a 1/12th human being would be kind of short!!!

Glad you like it. I will advise about getting a hold of this at the end of this thread.

Thanks Texman, Just out of curiosity why did you hate the seat?

I call it my bucket list of models. Thanks I'm glad you like it.

I think those guys are for sure 1/6th scale. I have Dragon Model figures and they are way bigger than this seat. Glad you liked the breakout parts. I find this easier than building entire planes.

Thanks Peter!! Glad you liked it. By the way I saw you got onto my Bristol late. I finished that one but the guys in Germany had two years invested in theirs and I just didn't feel right about putting mine out there with just a month or two invested. They did a great job.

Seat cushion

Here is the seat cushion.

This shows the syringe I use to get the fine edges for the glue up. About the best $2.00 I ever spent.



And here is the hole for the between the knees firing handle


and the part

It was a bear to work around. There were 7 pins required to safe it for maintenance,
and a flip up guard. One of the pins was directly on top, and one was underneath by
the rocket pack. There were alot of ways to get killed by it.

So, these are nicely scaleable?
Are you saying I could drop one of these in one of my P51s?!
oooh wouldn't that be nice!
Or maybe two into a B-24?!!
