The pilot I used is a 10" figure from warbirdpilots.com. He fit fine with no trimming. At about 1:7 scale he's the perfect size. I'll mount him to the seat during final detailing. I will make the cockpit look even better at that time, but for now I needed to know where everything would go before I started to install the gear. Here are a couple photos showing the fit. I left the foot pedals off, they get in the way and can't be seen anyway. You'll have to wait for the final cockpit photos, that will be later in the build. I attached a side view showing the fit in the canopy. It seems to be about right. Dash panel and gun sight also sit in the right place when compared to photo references.
