Hey guys,
check this out… looks like I’m getting a new body shell for the 2011 season :D

This is what you have been waiting for… a 1-5th scale Series II Holden Commodore V8 Supercar body shell designed and developed by world renowned body shell producer Frank Killam.

Now you can replicate the full size V8 Supercar teams down to exacting detail… this body was modelled off CAD data provided by Holden Motorsport and even incorporates a deep splitter front air dam – which will introduce some serious front end down force and improved steering.

To add to the authenticity, a decal kit consisting of head lights, grille and badges are available, as well as window paint mask sheets, both at extra cost.

Further information will be provided closer to the launch date (February 2011) and you can expect to be able to purchase these bodies from your local 1-5th scale hobby supplier.

For those interested, a Ford FG V8 Supercar body is in the development pipeline as well… It’s safe to say true 1-5th scale V8 Supercar racing has arrived.

Hi All,

A quick update:

Castings of the clay model have been made and a vacuum forming mould should be produced (from the castings) within the next week. This mould is then heat cycled and a bunch of test bodies are pulled. Any imperfections are fixed and then we are good to go! We are expecting to have these bodies ready for sale by mid to late February.


In the meantime, here are some higher detail images of the clay mould:

Hi All,

Sorry for the lack of updates - production of these bodies was delayed a little, but things are now full steam ahead.

Check out the attached pickies.
Sample Holden V8 Supercar body shells were produced during mould testing on Friday.
A few things still need to be done (e.g. trimming jigs constructed) but full production bodies shouldn't be too far away.

Frank Killam plans to debut the Holden V8 Supercar body shell at the RCX show in the USA this coming weekend.

Hi Darren,

Frank is busy finalising the mould and trimming jigs so the production bodies are probably 2 - 3 weeks away...

Cheers
:)
