Wanted Cox Curtis Pusher Pilot Figure WANTED!!!

Post  DanMc Sun Feb 11, 2024 10:11 pm

I have been wanting to build a sorta replica of the Cox Curtis Pusher to fly, but would REALLY like to have an authentic pilot figure in it when I do. What I have in my mind is something that will be made from alternative materials, powered by the correct engine and original prop once I get it test flown and trimmed. The original had lead weights in the legs to balance the airplane, and having one with those weights will help me determine the balance. As an alternative, if some one has already been down this road and can tell me of a toy action figure that is about the same size and weight I think I can work with that also. I know NOTHING of action figures so just need to know what , who and where to buy it !  Any leads will be most appreciated!!
   Thanks a lot!! and Type at you later,

Hey Dan,

You could probably take your original pilot to a place that does 3D printing. Shouldn’t be too expensive and look correct once painted.

Hey Ron !! Good to hear from you. I need to look into that. If I had a loose original pilot I would just use that, but would also need one to let some one copy. I don't know of anyone arou8nd here that has a printer but it's worth looking into. They could even print it is pieces like the original pilot, might make that job easier. I'm watching on on eVilBay that ends today but will have to see how that goes.
Thanks for checking in!!
