Does anyone know where I can get some good quality 1/25 scale figures for a Peterbilt 359 I'm building? I'm looking for drivers, etc.

Thanks,
Jim

Italeri used to have a set that came with 1/24 drivers

Then there are the Fujimi drivers

Thanks. I'm not sure a young girl in a mini-skirt will look good behind the wheel of Peterbilt or a Kenworth. Then again you never know!

Not sure if you can find anything here but they do have civilian figures.

Hello Jame and welcome to Armorama/Auto,

Yeah this was brought up many times in the scale auto modeling world. You’d think over the years that some one would put out a decent set of figures and drivers. The Fujimi and Italeri ones aren’t that bad but they are so played out. There are those other sets in resin and white metal but they are a little on the how would you say “racy” mildly indecent.

I happen to have a few left over mechanic figures and a driver all in 1/24 - 25th , if you’d like your welcome to them and maybe you can cut and piece something together. Pm me if your interested.

I had a look around the Scale Equipment site, but found myself asking what scale the figures were in. I'm guessing it is 1/25, but I couldn't really find any info from the site about this. Anyone know?

We'd allmost forget Preiser. Seated and standing truck drivers. Not cheap though.
