So you want to be a Naval Aviator?
I haven’t posted in a bit as I continue on with my Trumpeter A-1H build. I decided I wanted a pilot in the cockpit, but my choices in 1/32 were pretty much…nadda. The ZM pilot is hard to find, and not all that great. Aerobonus does however make a pretty nice USAF pilot that with the help of a razar saw, some donated hands from a Tamiya Corsair pilot and some two part epoxy putty for his G suit and survival vest and BOOM! A Naval Aviator from a USAF pilot! Seatbelts are wine bottle foil and Eduard USN WWII seatbelt buckles.
