I've got some of the Peter Pig Pilots, they're excellent.

They look a hundred times better than the misshapened lumps in the WOW Series 2 and I'm very sad to see there's more blobs in Series 3.

Those things are worse than nothing and make it difficult to put in anything else.

DMC did you find the WoW pilots hard to extract? They are plastic and soft enough that I would think a sharp tool could remove them. The Peter Pig pilots do look nice!

They were not that hard to remove, I just chopped off the bit of blob that's meant as a head then used three drills, small to give me a guide then two larger ones.

Sometimes a bit of work with an Exacto knife was needed to get rid of them finally.

The difficult bit was avoiding damage to the rest of the plane whilst doing the drilling and I had to reglue a couple of undercarraiges that broke off and also repaint scratched bits around the cockpit area.

I got the hang of it eventually and did much less damage as time went on.
