Dear community,
i'm looking / searching for something like a compendium about racing drivers and their helmet designs (additionally their overalls / racing suits)?
Does anyone have information about that?
Unbelievable, it seems, even in these days of infomation and world wide web, there's almost nothing usable to find and i've tried a few drivers..........
I've bought some DENIZEN-figures in 1:43 scale and want to paint them as realistic as possible. Any help is very much appreciated.
Or shall i name the drivers here and you guys check your materials at home?
It's all about McLaren F1 GTR drivers while / at the 1995 and 1996 editions of the 24 hours at Le Mans, such as Cecotto, Duez, Laffite, Soper, Lehto, Dalmas, Sullivan, Piquet sr., Wallace, Grouillard, Bellm, Sekya, ....

Thanks for reading my post and your kind answers / help, very much appreciated!

Hi jochen! Speaking of helmets, where did you get the black helmet in your signature? Did you build it yourself? Is it 1:24 scale? Thanks! :)

Oops! I forgot why I posted!:loser: have you tried Might be something you can use there. Btw, what are you planning to do? Build some or all of them in 1:24 scale? I would like to see that!

The black helmet is a real one as it is a photography in my signature...;-)
I already knew the page you are talking about, thanks a lot nevertheless!!!
As i wrote in my post, i bought some DENIZEN-figures in 1:43 scale and want to paint them / and their helmets / Suits like the real ones. Actually i'm weathering a 1:43 True Scale McLaren F1 GTR Bigazzi-FINA car and want to present it with a driver figure beside it. And therefore i'm in need of the real liverys to make it look realistic and match the right car with the right driver.
Thanks for your efforts!

If can't find it, might as well put "The Stig" driver in there.
