Above Photos are of my recently completed Proctor 1/4 scale
Nieuport 28.  The paint scheme is for the #7 aircraft of "B" Flight, 95 Aero
Squadron, U.S. Air Service, American Expeditionary Force in France, circa
May 1918.  It is built as a non-flying display model, which is now hanging
in my study along with a Nieuport 11, a Fokker Dr. I triplane and an SE-5a
as well as a 1/5 scale Spitfire Mk. IX.

Thank you for producing such magnificent pilot figures!  Personally, I just
hate seeing a beautifully done scale model pilotless -- particularly flying
models.  Over the years I have used pilot figures from a variety of
manufacturers, but truly, yours are the best; very lifelike with a real
personality about them.  I very much appreciate the fact that you produce a
variety of designs, as I want each of my aircraft to be unique.

My next project will be a 1/5 scale Hawker Typhoon.  How about producing an
R.A.F figure with all the typical British flight gear.  There is no rush --
these things take me years to finish.

Sincerely,

Robert D. Ward

Here are a couple of pictures of my friendís pilots. Greg Pierson (Hagerman, New Mexico) painted these to go into a BUSA SE5a & Dvii. He was just as impressed with your painting instructions as I was.

I just Finished Painting My Pilot this Morning (The Paint Is still sticky) I Used some of the Methods from your Painting tips section and It really helped! I dont think It would Have looked very good if it Was'nt for the tips! I think that Layering the Color and the Dry Brushing Techniques are what really make it look great. I think the one you have looks better than mine, but I did stray a bit from the process you used. Also I opted to use only Testors Enamel and Acrylic Model Paint that I had on Hand. I think that the use of oil Paint would have been better and easier for Blending Colors, But you can Paint it the way I did and still get a pretty good result. I'm going to put this Guy in my 1/3 Scale Sopwith Pup. I will try to post a picture of Him installed as soon as I can! Thanks a Bunch! I love your Pilots.
