Figures for our 1:43 scale are not the most common thing to find, and
yet I like them. The best "civilian" driver figures I have found are by Arttista (yes, it has an extra "t"). Others are made by Preiser (another favorite), Omen, and several others. But don't forget that many useful figures are listed as O Scale (not to be confused with those tiny little HO figures). The O scale figures are slightly smaller, perhaps 1:48, but this size can more easily be fitted behind steering wheels. Be prepared to do a little figure alteration at times.

Okay, I just checked eBay for "driver figures 1/43" and found several, including some decent looking ones from the French firm of Vroom. There were others also. Have fun!

If you find a good source for drivers, please post it here. I think several of us will be interested. Enjoy!
