  1. Many thanks John for the information. However, when I mentioned the age of the captain, it was more in relation to this : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Age_of_the_captain. that being said, there are datas worked from USAF source, 2015 : (excludes Air National Guards, Air Force Reserve and civilians) USAF active fighter pilots numbers by age : 17-24 : 43 25-34 : 1,341 35-44 : 968 45+ : 83 Total : 2,435 So very young and very old are very few, it is a fact, but they exist. The vast majority is between 25 and 44, and for 13 under 34, you have 9
  2. Hello We introduced some new heads on latest USAF standing figure, as we had, again, discutions about how old the captain should be. So we have now young recruit, comfirmed pilot, high rank veteran, for all tastes (maybe not all), and to match fighter school or colonel plane or others in between. 1990s - early 2000s era We do not make head option, as with a different neck, the collar needs each time to be modified too for a good match. So each head has his own body Cheers and I wish all a good transition to 2023 ! Norbert
  3. Hi gabor, if you have some nice full gears, you're welcome here (also if you don't have). Well, chances are always low but it is incredible what some people have. I have also a good part of gears lend by friends. So so far i'm not at the end of what I can do with what is here. However, in some thematic like a modern british pilot, everything is to do (studie the gears, find somebody who have them, etc...); any help appreciated on any thematic, from everybody
  4. Hi Gabor, Yes, the challenge is to undestand what is what, and then find it. Takes usualy a lot of time, but gives also a lot of fun by researching and studying. It's just great when a new figure comes out as a first testshot. Have a nice day Norbert
  5. Hmm, so far I still need to find somewhere an integrated harness vest for such a project (in the right size). Those kind of projects take often a certain time to come to frutition. Just got miraculously the LPU vest to complete a greek pilot project. Orher projects are in good ways too, all a question of time and opportunities
  6. I may contact Thales, but a walkaround of the helmet would be welcome too
  7. Hello ! This time we made a USAF pilot, from the 90s or early 2000s, equipped with a SRU-21 survival vest and LPU-9 life preserver , typical from gulf war time and following years. This gears were also used by many countries outside USA cheers Norbert
  8. probably not exactly the same, but other poses will come, endless possibilities
  9. If it may help, a youtube how to paint was recently created by an argentinian modeller :
  10. Hello ! in 1/32, she is here : https://store7093396.ecwid.com/?fbclid=IwAR3e--h16AMrXMnFQDbU91PHklwlaCcpRaALGf9IB4KL1wjohmR2OFjU7wc#!/1-32-US-Navy-modern-female-fighter-pilot-standing-2-hand-on-ladder-CJ/p/456860639/category=130995282 in 1/48 she is here : https://store7093396.ecwid.com/?fbclid=IwAR3e--h16AMrXMnFQDbU91PHklwlaCcpRaALGf9IB4KL1wjohmR2OFjU7wc#!/1-48-US-Navy-modern-female-fighter-pilot-standing-2-hand-on-ladder-CJ/p/456954802/category=72627701 in 1/72 she is here : https://store7093396.ecwid.com/?fbclid=IwAR3e--h16AMrXMnFQDbU91PHklwlaCcpRaALGf9IB4KL1wjo
  11. Hello ! Next is an US aircrew, wearing the CWU-27/P flight suit (80s to today era), taking pictures. Note this flight suit is used by many countries, and even civilian pilots. Shown here in 1/32 scale, but we do the figure also in 1/72, 1/48 and 1/35 scale cheers Norbert
  12. More Maverick if I look to this "how to paint" by Albornoz modelismo from argentina here is the youtube link :
  13. Here you go : http://reedoak.com/#!/US-Navy/c/130995282 You will need to go to page 8 & 9 Have a nice day
