Default DGA Scale Pilots

Hello everyone,
I recently purchased a Pica 1/5 Scale Waco YMF kit and am searching for a suitable 1/5 scale pilot. I had intended to purchase a pilot from "DGA Pilots" but recently discovered that the company has been sold out. I'm wondering if anyone out there might be able to point me in the right direction as far as another source for DGA pilots or a suitable alternative.

Thanks, Daniel.

Hangar 9 has some fairly decent pilots, but you will have to paint them (Same as DGA so that shouldn't be a factor). See: http://www.horizonhobby.com/Shop/ByC...ProdID=HAN8284

Check out the pilot included with the GP Stearman. They look pretty dang good, although not as exquisitely detailed as, say, an Aces of Iron pilot, but they are only about $6, and come prepainted. The part # is GPMA2807. He's 4-1/4 inches wide across the shoulders, 4-1/4 inches tall; his body stops just below his mid-chest.

Aces of Iron has some awesomely detailed pilot busts, in several scales, both military and civilian. They are unpainted and are about $18-20 for 1/5 scale.

Here's the 1/5 scale WW1 Generic design from aces of iron in the 1/5 scale Waco YMF. (From the aces of iron website)
