Hi,

I have a Hirobo SuperCobra AH-1W, 60 Class.
Does anyone know what scale that thing is?
I'm looking for a pilot to fit. Does anyone know?
Where I can buy a pilot for my model.

Thank you,
Bert

Why not measure the overall length of your model and then obtain the overall length of the real thing.
Divide the real thing by the model..result..rough scale size.

Full scale measurements: http://www.fas.org/man/dod-101/sys/ac/ah-1.htm

Or, you could measure: (top of seat back to top of seat cushion) + (back of seat cushion to front of seat cushion) + (front of seat cushion to pedals). That should give you a rough height to work from.

Hirobo gives a scale of 1:8. That is about right for pilot figures. The fuselage length is not really to scale and so don't assume the length to be accurate.

Scale

I measured one once and got 1:7.9 so 1/8th is closest
