Looking for modern jet pilots that will fit the 1/18 JSI F-14.

John....
Try this below address. Its a German company that sells a resin kit that is designed to fit the JSI F-14 cockpit. The only glitch is that the cockpit needs to be removed for correct install. Also you need to paint both figures. Have a look..

Thanks for the info, Yes, have seen these figures however don't want to take apart the cockpit. There has to be 1/18 scale figures that others have used that will work. I know BBI made some figures back in the day.

Your correct John, BBI did make these figures back in the day. Today however, they are extremely hard to find, I've only seen 4 figures come up on Ebay in 8 years and, for crazy money. I only wish I had bought more knowing what I know now.
Best of luck with your search.

I´ve done some pilots out of several figures and helmets I´ve got. A customer of mine bought the 2 with yellow/black helmets for his F14
What do you think

Sending in an Envelope should be for 1-2 figures for 10-15 US$ possible.
Would like to ask 15 US$ for each figure.
The ones with white helmet and oxygen mask and the ones with modern grey helmet and oxygen mask are still available.

The smaller 21st. pilot figures work well for nearly every Cockpit. The bigger guys in modern and all green equipment need some overhaulin for fitting in tight cockpits.

I can do red helmets out of the white ones with oxygen mask. Even with the white lightning on it. If you want me to do it I´ll do one prototyp for you to see and choose.
The original red ones are out of stock.

I'm looking for pilots with the old style helmet that has the visor cover. My intent is to paint the helmet as a VF-111 Sundowner. Can you just send a pic of the white like the red?

That type of helmet would be the HGU-33 style, if this helps Crazy Kraut.

I´ll get some more heads with the red helmet and Oxygen mask in the next days. Will build up a Pilot and show some pics soon.
Stay tuned :wink: :wink:

Nice work, hoping they will be able to seat well in the Cat's cockpit!

Give em some overall green colouring at the dress and then they will work perfect for the big cat. :wink: :wink:
