Would have to be the F9F pilot. USAF used different helmets. Anybody happen to have a couple Panther pilots needing reassignment?

Monogram's F-80 and F9F came with pretty nice seated pilots. Perhaps someone has some spares around?

With all this talk about Murder Hornets I've got a bug to take a break from and build something with wings. Got a couple F9Fs, a 3 and a 2P. Waiting for and F9F9 Cougar. Does anybody make seated 1950s USN aircrew? Can find plenty from every other ear and nation, and a couple sets of Korean war crew standing , but none to put in the cockpit. Any pointers?
