Pilot Sizing

Pilot Sizing

The most important considerations when choosing a pilot are seated height and shoulder width, as many models have cockpits that are not proportional to the rest of the airframe. If this is the case for your model then you may have to modify the cockpit if you decide to fit a figure of the correct size, particularly on several jet kits.

 

We have listed some of the more popular model kits that have out of scale cockpits below, if you are unsure please contact us, as we may have produced pilots for your particular model and could be aware of the cockpit constrictions.
