Default Pilots for my 1/5 scale L-39

Looking for some good looking, right sized pilots for my 1/5th scale L-39. I have room for about a 2/3 figure. In other words there is room for legs down to the mid thigh or maybe to the knee.

Any ideas on differnt suppliers or manufacturers of the above.

BVM sells 1/5th Skymaster pilots that are nice. http://shopbvmjets.com/zencart/index...index&cPath=25

Thanks Joe c. Good looking pilot. A little pricey but not out of the question. It says they weigh 16 oz each which seems awfully heavy. With no pilots my airplane is alittle tail heavy and has lead in the nose ( I dont recall how much exactly, maybe 5 -8 ounces). I will certainly be able to remove most if not all nose weight. All if I put two pilots in.

They are kinda heavy, I took off the legs and feet, with the flt suit on, you dont see the legs anyway.
