US Active Duty UAVs

I am modeling Drones and Unmanned Ariel Vehicles that served actively (not testing or in X-plane evaluations). I am going to try to stay with a common scale. This collection will therefore be of plastic, resin, paper, really whatever I can find.

While my bench kits are heading to paint-booth purgatory I've begun thinking about the next "kit." There is part of my that wants to include the series 1 UAVs but stick to 1:48 scale like my others. That means small and completely custom. I have plans for the RQ-11 Raven that I could scale down and scratch build, but how to display? I'd love to have it with a figure in the act of throwing. Does anyone have a suggestion of a 1:48 US army or marine figure that is modeled in the act of a throw? Like a grenade? The pics on this wiki page are my idea
