Default Lets see those Crazy Pilots

More than once my father had stolen one of my childhood toys (even though I wasn't done with it yet!) and it ended up in an airplane.

The most original would have to be a plastic model Frankenstien that got taken off my brother's self, cut at the torso and glued into an aeromaster. That aeromaster went on to have both miss piggy AND gonzo as pilots.

After my father passed, The plane went to a friend of mine (a person who is called 'unstable' on this board). He asures me that he will recover the plane in pink and reinstate miss piggy at the stick.

There is also a line of kid's juice with bottle tops in the shape of cartoon characters (I can't remember the name of the juice),

But some of the characters are Sylvester, spider-man, the power-puff girls, etc. ONE of these will end up in SOME plane of mine or other.

Default slow poke pilot/husky

I have lots of strange pilots, here is one of my last builds. I had way to much time on my hands. Slowpoke .40 with a .45 saito special. Homemade balsa cowl and yes even Retracts on this one. I use a beany babby "Husky" as the pilot. Hey the eyes are the same color blue.

Thanks everyone for posting.......although I was starting to get a little worried after CAPtain232 and Visioneer_one posted

You guys are all right aren't you, didn't run into anything, set the drapes and house on fire LOL

Keep them coming folks, I'd like to take a vote much later on -maybe the most unique, funniest, scale, etc. if we get enough

Straight from Bikini Bottom......SpongeBob Squarepants! If you have kids, you know who he is....if the kids are grown, it's way too hard to explain! At any rate he does a good job flying my 4*60.

I figured that this plane would fly in circles, so I put TAZ at the stick...
