How to change the appearance of your pilot.


It is quite easy to change the appearance of your pilot , especially if you have a two man cockpit and don't want the occupants to be identical .


These are the things you can do :-


  1. Turn his head so he looks sideways or up, or down a bit.

  2. Give him a moustache.

  3. Remove his moustache if he has one.

  4. Change the shape of his nose and/or mouth.

  5. Paint his jacket and/or helmet a different colour


Heres how :-

  1. Saw off the head with a razor saw or cut with a craft knife. Try to make a straight cut as near to the collar as possible.

    Get a piece of small diameter tubular pipe insulation foam from your local D.I.Y store and cut a piece about 60mm long. Trim it back down the side slit so it can be inserted into the neck of the head and collar.

    Smear some contact glue such as Evostik inside the neck and collar holes , then position the head to your liking, before the glue goes tacky.

  2. You could just paint a moustache on , or , using a bit of cloth or your own hair , glue one on. Alternatively, buy some epoxy putty such as Milliput and model one .

  3. Just cut off any moustache carefully with a sharp scalpel

  4. Milliput putty is easy to model and can also be used to reshape the nose or mouth. I often open up the mouth with a scalpel then reshape the bottom lip and even sometimes show a glimpse of teeth using Milliput. There are other two part putties available such as Green Stuff

    1. To repaint his attire Acrylic waterbased paints are the easiest.

You could also repaint his face to make him look different

Good Luck Pete
