Any one know anywhere that produce bodies that at least look similar to the V8 Supercars for HO cars?

Been suggested the Nissan Skyline from the Fast and Furious collection produced by AutoWorld is the only body that as near as possible and as in plastic it lighter than resin so may get a couple and relivery them.

AFX did do some Skylines. Liveries such as Calsonic and Mobil 1 can be found. Most probably for the aussie market, some sets were sold in the UK. Some came in a Bathurst 1000 set.
I do have 2, one of which i bought years ago, and the other i found in a charity shop, so they are around.
A quick search in Google Images under 'AFX skyline' shows some of them.

I've got one of the Autoworld Skylines, it looks nothing like a Ford Falcon or a Holden Commodore, it's also quite heavy, LifeLike did some Ford Falcons, but I think they were just repaints of their old Nascar body.

There is a resin modern Ford Falcon available in the UK, but it fits the T-Jet chassis not the AFX chassis.

Martin sent me a pic of a AutoWorld Nissan Skyline he repainted and decaled and fits a SRT and Turbo chassis looks good and very close tbh

Shame there isn't full proper V8 HO cars but the skyline as near as I reckon can get. For the weight will try and maybe take a little off from inside.

Good to see you on here Mart, a rare event


Did you get my post-HONK email?

Lee - The F&F skyline is a totally different beast to what you are talking about, the wild colours and tall wing giving away the movie tie-in.

But I suppose with the right decals one can make almost anything look like something else in our scale....

Yeah only want them to be redecaled into V8 colours they look similar (ish) then the chassis always good for some fun home use

I wonder if that guy who casts the Nationwide COTS with spoilers (as opposed to wings) for the MG17 would do some proper V8s ?
