Yes we have one at the field but your tail looks different,nicely coloured model too.

Can't help with the pilot figure but if all else fails you could revert to childhood days and use paper mache with some water based thick glue.Plenty of old newspapers around and no better use for the rubbish they print than to make it into a dummy.Shape it initially with thumb and forefinger,you can then carve facial features with a shaped icecream stick..try it if you have time and waterbased paints adhere well but if time prevents..the web! and if you come across homer bart and lisa please send me a link,thanks and good luck.

Thanks for your reply, I will be on the look out for the Simpsons.. It looks that I have found someone to paint me up a pilot.. I'm just gonna use a 1/5 scale Williams Bros Pilot from Tower.
Thanks for all your help

Here's the whole Simpson family. It looks like they might be about the right size too. You'll have to saw the busts off..... But at least they're cheap.

edit.... saw the busts off. Hehehe.
actually I dunno if they're plastic dolls or stuffed. They look plastic.
