Very elusive, can't find anything...would 1/20 be a huge difference?

1/20 would look horribly oversize and if you tried to put it a F1 car it would probably not even fit.

Some of the old Tamiya 1/24 DTM race car sets contain driver figures. I used one of these as a basis for making my own figures.
See this post for how I did it.

what about looking for some spare 1/24 pilots on ebay and converting them?

Why convert when the Fujimi set has two drivers which can take separate heads to make them F1 drivers? The set is common enough to find easily.

Tamiya used to have soft rally drivers in 1:24 in their rally cars of it is of use..
(not that the drivers were soft :lol: but the polystyrene was of a soft type.. :blob:

Thanks guys, I had drawn a blank finding the Fujimi set, cant get it from Amazon because they dont take Paypal. I'll put it on Wonderlands stock update page, I would imagine it will take me that long to build it anyway.
