Hi there, have just discovered this excellent new sub-forum.

I've always been a fan of replica and model helmets, especially half scale.

Now, I was wondering, does anyone out there know if S.P.O.R.T.S models made half scale helmets of Nick Heidfeld and Felipe Massa at Sauber in 2002?

I'm sure I saw them somewhere but can't find any trace which makes me think they're super rare.

Welcome to this section! Yes diecast models rule!!!

Minichamps made the Massa in 1/2 scale and they are selling for normal prices on eBay and can be found in shops too if you search with Google.

Are you sure the 1/2 Heidfeld is out yet? I don't know, but found this website:

Some 1/2 helmets are indeed very rare and go for huge bucks on auction sites. :stoned:

I've had a really good shop around and come to the conclusion that the Heidfeld lid must have never reached production.

If anyone has one in good condition let me know.

I know that sports have been going for over a decade now, but does anyone know of any earlier examples of mini racing helmet, produed before the line really gained any momentum? I assume this line pre-dates the mini-wheel and mini-front wings.
