    I need one to add to the cockpit I am working on for my SS Tie Fighter.

    I think swmodeler was working with someone who was sculpting a 1/24 TIE pilot, to be cast and sold in the future. On my TIE, I converted the driver figure from one of the old Monogram 1/24 sprint car kits. The original figure wore a jumpsuit and gloves, and was posed in a suitable upright driving posture. I sculpted a new helmet and the chest armor with epoxy putty.

    The actual figure in the original model is a pilot figure from the Airfix Harrier model.

    That is what I had heard as well.
    Here is a Airfix Harrier pilot that I used to replace my SS BSG Viper pilot.

    I used a toy figure, cut/re-positioned the joints into sitting position. Made a mold & casting. Came out pretty well, I think!!
