You want 1/24 zombies (what's with zombies, anyway)? Try here: http://www.darkworldcreations.com/

Now, back to the "real world". As for drivers, I kinow the 3 Inches Under does a couple of drivers: http://stores.ebay.c...d=p4634.c0.m322 One is a firefighter in full turn-out gear, and the other is modeled after Roy DeSoto from "Emergency!"


Those Zombie Figures are Awesome!!! Im getting some of those for my Zombie Hunter Build! Thanks for the Link

This is what I'm talking about! Now you can put appropriate cloths on them, wait a minute....are we playing with dolls now? You know if they put Barbie dolls in 1/24 or 1/25 scale that might work! If we could position arms and legs would also be nice. Like this.Posted ImagePosted Image

That would be awesome! I know they did a deal with McDonalds once and had some smaller Barbies in Happy Meals but, I don't know what scale. Of course we would need Ken the mechanic also. :lol:

Find them HERE.

You can also do a search for 'G Scale figures' and find garden railroad figures from 1:32 to 1:20.

What's the problem with buying something from Spain?

Shipping cost, no tracking, customs, worrying if it'll ever come...you name it.

Preiser figures can be found in the US, many model train stores carry them, especially if the have G scale trains. The Adams and Eves sets aren't too expensive, and tend to have much better detail than the standard Prieser figures, which have very good detail to begin with. As mentioned, they do require assembly and painting, and you will have to sculpt your own clothing on them, but there are many options on how they can be assembled, as there are extra arms and legs, plus the torsos are in different poses. It's basically a Mix-N-Match the parts to get the poses you want.
For the regular Prieser figures, look for the unpainted sets. They run about half what the painted versions do, and realistically, they're mor elike one quarter the cost as they tend to have 6 figures instead of the normal 3 that are in Prieser sets.

My point is that no one is making highly detailed realistic figures for 1/24. Were making do with whatever ... But we shouldn't , this market is huge! Trains, Planes, Boats all have aftermarket figures which look realistic and compliment them. Thanks for some of the suggestions but honestly there still not quite up to par. We need new comteporary figures to fill this void!

so campus friends and assorting mechanic sets arent good enough? some of those figures are pretty nice but i can understand if they are not realistic enough. personally i like having kinda blank figures personality wise, so they dont detract from the car.

ive fitted some drivers to models and they are pretty surgery intensive sometimes, getting a fairly realistic pose with hand on shift lever and steering wheel etc. good thing they dont scream from the pain
