Default 1/10th 190mm Australian V8 super car shells

Not sure if this is the right place to ask this, but does anyone know if any companies make a 190mm version of the current Ford/Holden V8's?

Seen this 5th scale version and it got me thinking

Frewer Racing from New Zealand used to do a good range.
Used to race with their bodies before the Gbs came along

GV Models make a bunch of Aussie cars. Any good Australian Hobby SHop or online retailer would carry them. Not sure if they're 190 or 200mm though.

A couple of links:

Oh yeah, maybe not totally 2012/2013 current, but recent.

I was going to say: this is so much shaped like a 1/10th TC you could just copy this paint/decal scheme on a LTCR and a have a pretty realistic body and a good one at he same time.

Then I looked up to see the paint scheme again and realized I actually have a LTCR with that exact paint scheme ! But without the decals. I got it when I bought a Photon for parts, but never used it because it was too dark for my taste. It must be in a box somewhere at my mom's

I was about to say GV. They also do some older Holden Toranas and Ford Falcons, as well as Utes. Worth Googling!

I`ve found the last Frewer Ford falcon at my LHS. That gave me an idea! Wanted to do this for a long time and I am halfway there! Tell me what you think.[IMG]<a href="http://s1081.photobucket.com/albums/j342/Bentc5/?action=view&amp;current=Centurion-20130120-00397.jpg" target="_blank"><img src="http://i1081.photobucket.com/albums/j342/Bentc5/Centurion-20130120-00397.jpg" border="0" alt="Photobucket"></a>[/IMG]

Are frewer still around? Schumacher used to distribute them in the UK years ago, one of the guys at our club used to run the falcon, the commodore was a nice looking shell.

No UK distributor and don't know if he is still in business, but Kevin Frewer has done short production runs of any body he still has the pattern for.
Just the postage costs from New Zealand makes ordering a single body from him very expensive.

If this was what TC was all about, I would still be racing it. But, of course, everyone wanted to race jelly beans with dishes for wheels.... Lame.

This should be the new hotness in RC on-road, with an emphasis on scale looks, paint, wheels, etc.
