Default 1/5 scale pilot

Who makes a 1/5 scale, full-body pilot figure in a civilian flavor? I've done a Web search and haven't had much luck.

This is for a 1:5 scale Beaver, and I'm looking for a "bush pilot"-style figure. I've (briefly) considered a "Ken & Barbie" doll figure. Or getting a pilot bust and sewing up a body.

Of course, I might get less serious and hunt up a Dudley Do-right figure (or Bullwinkle)...

DGA has a 1/5 scale full bodied pilot, but as you are contemplating all it is .....is the pattern for a sew-it-yourself body. The kit has a latex bust, hands, and boots. DGA is hard to find (maybe out of business), but some hobby shops may still carry this one

I may have to go with the "non-ARF" pilot figure. No good Web-hits for "DGA".

Oh well, this _is_ aeromodelling and I guess I'll have to learn dressmaking in addition to carpentry...

The best pilot figures I've seen are by a German fellow, Axel Pfannmueller, at http://www.axels-scale-pilots.de/ . Needless to say, very expensive and, unfortunately, the smallest is 1/4 scale. I have an "Axel" for my 1:4 Wilga that is in the works, and it is an impeccable figure.
