I need a helmsman for my Huntsman 31 in 1:12 scale.

All I'm finding is dolls house dolls or gnarley fishermen in sou'westers.

Need a man or woman in casual cloths.

Any thoughts?

Your excuse to get the Mrs. involved, Steve. Get a dolls' house doll and redress him/her. 1/12th is a pain for non period figures. 1/8th ain't much better. I've redressed some 1/16th figures with Milliput to make four crew for my Crash Tender, but it took a while and you still need a base figure to save time.

Just bought this one which as you say may be OK for modification.
All I need is someone holding the wheel.

A bit of 'arm breakage' may be required.
