Default 1/7 or 1/6 scale pilot

Hello,

I am curious if the 1/6 scale "George Taylor" figure by bbi or dragon figures would be to big for my hangar 9 spitfire 60. The 60 size I guess is 1/7 scale, but I really want to have a good looking pilot. I have been researching quite a bit and haven't found a good enough answer to pull the trigger and buy one yet. Waiting to hear your opinions....

You could always go to Walmart or a toy store and use Barbie. A Barbie or Bratz doll head always creates more interest that the GI Joe style of pilot busts.

You don't have to guess about scale. Look up the wing span of the full scale plane, convert it to inches and divide that number by the wing span of the model (in inches). The answer will give you the scale. For example, the Piper Cub has a wing span of 35' 3" which equals 423". A model cub with a wing span of 84" would be 1/5 scale (423/84=5.036).
