Wildcats were used in the Pacific right? Sorry, "wingie-things" aren't my thing :-)

I found this US Pilot WWII Pacific theatre in 1/32 on the Hannants site. He's seated on the wing, but with very minor modification he can be positioned in the cockpit. HERE is the link.

hi Kenny,
I am not sure if any sitting WW2 US navy pilots are available on market,this may need some conversion or scratchbuilt but if you intend to make the canopy open and pilot out of cockpit,here is some help for ww2 Navy pilots.especially 54 mm is hard to find,maybe 1/35 can help.

Hey guys,
I'm looking for a WW2 US Navy pilot to put in the cockpit of a F4F Wildcat. Does anyone know if there is such a figure?
