  • Dummy pilots.

    I've started making my own. For the most part, the ones for sale are too expensive, too heavy, and too ugly. I've made silicone molds of various style and size pilots. I cast the pilots from Alumilite casting foam. They are light as a feather, cost next to nothing, and I have the pleasure of painting them to look like a real human being. Doc

        Going to NJ for a while. It may be after Thanksgiving. Be glad to describe the whole process. It's the same way I made my bronze casting silicone rubber molds. Just pouring foam instead of wax. Doc

          G'day Doc,
          For an awful moment I thought you were talking about me!!!

              Are you calling yourself a 'dummy pilot'?

                When I wreck a plane, "dummy" isn't exactly what I call myself! Doc
