If you Go by lenght it is 1/13.5 scale
And if you go by wing span it is 1/11.5 scale
so any thing from 1/12 to 1/14th scale should work...

Evoten,

I love the BEA Hawk! In fact, I drew plans for one over 25 years ago or better! I actually built the model but never finished it.

Set up for a Supertiger and prop. That's probably why I never finished it. Photos if there's interest, or not!

Anyway, there used to be these ABS pilots offered about 100 years ago. Don't know if they are still offered? But must be arround.

With a bit of chopping and channeling, a decent pilot can be arrived at. Certainly not Master scale, but cleaned up and painted, they could be "perfect" from 1000 ft.

Here's one of my guys. Still have a bit of work left.

Here are 3 pages of pilots: http://www.hobbyking.com/hobbyking/s...idCategory=125

I am not sure how 1/12 or 1/14 scale converts to cm or millimeter, but I am sure it's easy to calculate for you.

Hi Evoten!

A really nice 1/12 full body scale pilot can be found on this site,http://www.mbs-rcmodels.se/    

Btw, they make fantastic CNC-kits of Swedish jetfighters in 1/12 scale.

Regards
Seejay

We at Jet Hangar Hobbies have a growing selection of scale jet pilots including the following busts shown in the pic and a 1/10 scale full body pilot also. More are in the works both the busts and fully body.

Nice!

The 1/8 could work for me, but sans lower end!
