Default 12 inch - 1/6 scale skydivers?

Does anybody produce 1/6 scale RC skydiver bodies? I'd think this would be the perfect size as so many accessories are available in 1/6 scale (GI Joe, etc...) I want to convert a 12 inch GI Joe size HALO jumper into an RC Skydiver and was wondering if there were any rc skydiver bodies out there that would fit into the GI Joe HALO rig?
Also wondering about chute size, I have a 9 inch jumper w/chute from rcskydiving.com but I'm not sure how well that chute would hold up to the GI Joe size jumpers.

CPIG: you might see if anyone has a gitchell chute they would like to sell it would be a better chute for the GI Joe jumper

We do still offer the chute that would work with that size diver. It works best around 2-1/2 lb divers. The Micro chute will not be big enough for that jumper, it is only good for 10oz.

Dave,
Is that the 49" chute, and how long would it take you to make an all grey military HALO chute for me?
Thanks,
Joe

We are back out about 3 weeks again due to large volume of orders. We do have all the materials in stock, just the time it takes to complete will be a factor.
