1/48 WW2 FAA Pilot Hot Climate

Sculpted By : Jim Raynor

His parachute harness is of the Irvin seat type with twist quick release barrel buckle. His Mae West is of the 1939-1940 pattern (these are very similar except the 1939 is much paler in colour – almost a tan rather than a distinctive yellow), as the navy often had to make do with much older equipment as new supply of improved models went directly to the RAF.
He wears stanard officers shoes in black leather and Khaki/tropical airtex shirt and trousers for officers, his gloves are of the short type in single ply soft kid leather. Sometimes these were substituted with driving gloves bought directly or privately from a gentlemans outfitters. 
His helment is of the C-type, this although looks very similare to the B-type “Zipear” of Battle of Britain fame is a very different helmet, this is the standard RAF C-type leather helmet with “Zipears” added to accommodate the Navy electronics. These helmets were worn by the Royal Navy and RAF Coastal command exclusively and the goggles are of the MKII type.
