1/48 WW2 FAA Pilot Cold Climate

Sculpted By : Jim Raynor

In the freezing Atlantic ocean,  many aviators lost their lives due to inadequate clothing in the early years of naval aviation.
This led the Royal Navy and RAF developing and using the famous Irvine flight jacket, this jacket is of mid brown shearling colour and is much thicker and heavier than the more commonly seen USAAF B-3 sheepskin.
These jackets were very heavy and were issued to the RN crews for use over water, as well as standard cold weather issue conditions. His trousers are standard officers black trousers and shoes again standard for officers. He wears a scarf tucked inside his jacket collar and his parachute harness , is the Irvine seat type with twist quick release barrel buckle,  the seat type is made by Irvine (not related to the flight jacket).
His gloves again are made of kid leather and his helmet is the same as Navy Type-C. He also wears the 1939 or 1940 Mae West life preserver.
