Comet stick & tissue SPAD...

While I was at Rosemont this weekend, I picked up one of the Comet stick and
tissue models (the 12" wingspan Spad) to build and hang from my son's
ceiling. I thought I would build it as Rickenbacker's Spad (since I have a
copy of a USAF Museum print to frame and hang on the wall).

I was wondering if any of our "flying scale" friends know where I could get
a pilot figure and decals for this kit? I don't really know the scale yet
(I will have to do the math myself). But I thought I remembered seeing an
"upper torso" pilot figure for the Comet models.

Since I am usually only a static modeler (and at 1/72nd scale to boot), any
tips or pointers would be greatly appreciated.

Oh yes, I also found a wallpaper border that has WWI era aircraft on it
(thanks to Barry at Rosemont). It has a three view of a Dr.1 (and maybe
some other aircraft) on it. When I get a couple of rolls, I will give more
