Sikorsky H-34

I got the above model for my Vietnam war Project. I want to use the Empress miniatures new pilot figures with the above model. The model is in 1/48 scale and fits quite nicely with the Empress Miniatures. The M60 included in the model is exactly as big as the one used on the Empress figures.

Now my problem. The pilot figures seem to be not fitting properly.

As you can see the hight works but somehow the cockpit is to long . If I sit the figures back in the seat to lean against the backrest they can’t reach the pedals or the stick. What would you do?

Here are pictures with the canopy added as a dry fit. Here the problem gets even more apparent :

So what would be your solution? Any help appreciated .

  1. Hi Tom,
    are your usual figures not 28mm size? 1/48 scale figures should be 3,33 to 3,8 cm high.
    Your pilots will not reach the anti torque pedals and almost cannot look over the dashboard. They are nicely sculpted, but quite the Tyrion Lannisters. CMK among others offers good Vietnam era pilots in quarter scale.
