    WWII RAF Pilot "Scramble"

    I really enjoyed the Bulldog Spirit project I posted last year and wanted to do another RAF Pilot

    I have always liked the white flight suit seen in some photos and in the Ron Volstad image from the RAF Osprey book so decided to try another pilot with the Prestige suit and also make him a little more dynamic

    I used an Alert Line body and Ace Headsculpt for the base figure which I then supported with a wire armature to hold the running pose firmly

    The overalls are from DID's Kurt Meyer figure and the rest of the uniform and equipment is made up of Alert Line, Kings Toys, Dragon and DID

    The parachute is a lovely item but took time to get looking right. I detailed the figure with acrylic and oil colours and finished with pastel chalks

    It has been mounted on a Walnut Plinth base with WW2 RAF eagle crest

    All in all I'm really happy in how the figure turned out and learnt a lot from trying to get the pose right

    Looks great, Mark. I keep telling myself that I'm going to try to take the tips you've given me to start on similar projects. Hopefully sooner than later.

    Another great looking BoB figure Mark. I was wondering what you had planned for the King's Toy figure.

    I’m not too sure yet Lt. Dan but like the idea of keeping his tunic / trousers as a contrast to this one

    I’ve been wondering what to do as my next project actually, not sure whether to stick with WW2 or go Vietnam again
