Default PST Panther pilot?

What are you guys using for a pilot in the PST Panther? We have bought the detailed cockpit kit's from them and want to put a pilot in.

Thanks, Wayne

Wayne,

I have a bust of Marvin the Martian that wouild look good in there.

IF that doesn't work, some of the GI Joe versions should work, I know thay make a Helo pilot Joe and they may have oher ones as well.

Actually, the 1/6 scale figures should be about right for the PST Panther. This guy is from the right era, but the wrong service:

but Bad Cat Toys has others that might work...

That is the one I used. He fits in, just got to chop off his legs. Take a little bit of paint and scuff up his helmet where it says US AIr Force.

I too used that one, a little sanding on the helmet and it looked the part. I cut the bottom out of the tray and made it a full cockpit, needed the weight anyways.
On the second one, I opted for an MGA pilot instead, but you will need to cut down his shoulders to make him fit just right.

Stan, you were going to use him in your Hot Spot. Since this is going to have gear doors, I want it to be more scale.

Thanks, Tommy,

That's what we'll use. We're putting 2 PST Panther's for this summer.

I used the BBox F86 pilot in my Ziroli Panther as well. A bit of a tight fit, but I left his body together for the needed weight up front.
