    Willing to Trade: No

    Item Description:

    This remarkable pilot figure is the most realistic RAF pilot in the hobby. It is a sculpted portrait of RAF WW2 multi-ace Sailor Malan in 1/5 scale. The figure is hollow-cast (surprisingly light!) in durable resin capturing every meticulous, authentic detail of a RAF WW2 pilot: RAF wool textured flight jacket, Mk3 Goggles, leather textured flight helmet with all the straps and buttons, leg warmers with boots accurate down to the soles.

    Sailor is a superb pilot for the Top Flite Giant Scale Spitfire!

    *** THIS JUST IN!!!***
    *** 2013 U.S. Scale Masters Grand Champion! ***
    Two Sailor Malan figures piloted Tom Wolf's amazing 1/5 scale Mosquito to win the 2013 U.S. Scale Masters Grand Champion!!...Well, uh... I think Tom's building and flying skills had MORE to do with the actual piloting part... but Hey! These guys were in the cockpit!
    I looked quite some time for pilot figures for my Mosquito, and I must say your pilots are far and away the nicest ones out there. I’ve been recommending Best Pilots every time I meet someone who is looking for pilots. - Tom Wolf, Top Gun Competitor & 2013 U.S. Scale Masters Champion

    DON'T FLY WITH DOLLS, fly with the best!... BEST PILOTS.

    $65 Unpainted + $8 shipping
    $195 PAINTED + $8 shipping

    Dimensions: 4 Elbow to Elbow. 6 from seat to head.

    Hi Ed,

    Thanks for the kind words on the pilots. There is nothing more I'd like to do but sculpt a whole line of 1/4 WWII pilots. Unfortunately, this size isn't as profitable for the cast-resin pilots. The material use goes up exponentially and the demand is pretty low. I bet your Spitfire looks awesome! Thanks for your interest.

    Hey Artchristic1, I've been thinking about some smaller pilots to add to the line-up. A jet pilot may be a good one. 1/8 scale you think?

    Hi;

    Put it this way, there are not too many good real good scale 1:8 jet pilot figures out there for us jet pilots to put in our planes.
    Companies are not scaling down to our scale due to difficulty and you are one of the great ones that can make it possible. The market is very big. Just take a look at the jet sales every ware. Cockpits are there but no pilots to sit in the planes.
    Just think about it.
    Start with one and see ware it goes.
    Sport civilian jet pilot is a good start. Sport planes are the most popular kits on the market.
