So with all these cheap printers, :co  is no one on this site got a scanner or is capable of scanning photos to print look alike pilots ,; :study:

3D scanners do exist. The last time I had a go at one the results were 'less than perfect', and I decided that life was too short to persist with it. You would be better off 3D printing a pilot with a flat face and cutting up a photo to stick on it.......

my mate is in the late stages of printing an EDF Super Sabre. It has all the detail you could wish for, is VERY light and super strong. Even the retracts, wheels, everything are printed. Its around 5 feet length. I dont see a pilot would be any problem. Its just getting the files.

The images that I posted were from a firm that scanned photos,,

A pal of mine had a 3D professional quality scanner, snag is it cost about £20K as I recall...

but it would scan a full-size car in sufficient detail to make a copy!

My mug isn't that big, but maybe as ugly,,

I have seen in model shows where they scan objects including faces and cut ? them out of resin blocks,resin.png

 I asked him if he would scan me and sell me the file, but it didn't interest him,, ( typical French )

At the Nationals "Scale me down" did me and am very happy with the result. Only seem to have a facebook page and no website.
Not 3d printed, could be etched with a laser from a solid block ?. Very light and hard.  :af

Pilot size.jpgHelp,,, I am not getting much movement from them in their mails,,

So can we cut to the chase ?,,,

Is it possible to see a picture of the front of pilot, N° 2305 and just make a head and shoulders of it,

Head and neck 'A' 6cm

Shoulders 'B' 3cm

Giving a total of 9cm.

Then I can always trim the body off to fit in me planes,

I can't give him an accurate scale size as my planes sizes are as follow,,

ME 109 1/6th scale, head and shoulders 7cm
P 40  1/7th scale  Head and shoulders 9cm
P 47 1/1.75 scale  Head and shoulders 8cm

I want an unpainted one,

 Has anyone got a picture of this one , and sizes please ?.
