I'm building an AS-350 using a TREX 600N. converted to electric. Pull off the radio mount and replace it with frame spacers, problem solved! Mount your radio equipment in the fuselage.

A lot of the figures found on ebay are 1:6 scale and have to be "resized". For one of my smaller scalers I used some figureds I found at Bass Pro. Hunter Dan and a female figure (can't remember the name).

not sure what scale you are fitting into but here is what I have...

This is a Vario gasser (800 size) and figures are 12"s.. I have a few extra's I have picked up. Also what works well for the smaller sizes are the figures by McFarland. These are getting harder to find and as Dr. Tim said "are getting a bit pricey". If you can use the 12" size let me know, I can part with a few (reasonable)

I'm looking for 1/8 figure too (about 8".
Is there a particular number or model from McFarland or G.I. Joes i should be looking for?

McFarlane Series 3 are about 6" tall I believe, actually 6.75.....

Here's a link:

A quick search on Ebay should find several available.

Here's what mine look like after some surgery.

GI Joes are 12" figures (~1/6), as are most of the nice military figures. The McFarlanes are pretty small (~1/10).

There are some Star Trek figures that are 9" (~1/8). I found one on eBay for less than $5 that I used in my AStar... I haven't been able to find any military figures in that size.

Knees, hips, shoulders and elbows are moveable. Still can't quite get his hands in the right spot for the cyclic, though. Might have to do some surgery...

Vario offers pilots at various sizes.
There is one that is 190mm tall (25.4mm = 1”), I imagine that this is a good size for 1/8 to 1/10 scale.
The part number is 1/1.

I believe that when in doubt a slightly larger figure is better that one that is too small.

The two lads flying my Bell 47g are from Dragon figures possibly they manufacture a suitable size.

I was told that the 190mm Vario's figure look odd and kinda like midget. Not very realistic.
