    I'd say that if the head is the right size everything else can be fixed, particularly if this 1/3 scale figure has sewn clothes that would have radical surgery...for example a "butt-ectomy." (What...

    Could you shorten your current pilot with a little selective surgery? I doubt anyone would notice if his legs weren't quite "scale length" or if you removed a few "vertebrae." (BTW, do you fly at...
