Biante 1:18 Ford FG Falcon V8 Supercars

Biante 1:18 Ford FG Falcon V8 Supercars Plain White B18303L

Plain White model of a car which races in V8 Supercars championship in Australia.
Few days ago this racing series came to Austin, Texas.
I put it under Other Manufacturers section cause I think it is Biante's own model.
Usually AutoArt makes it for them.
Great model, even without colourful Australian livery it looks mean.
You can appreciate details, body lines when the livery isn't there.
Model has many details, working suspension in the front. But that suspension feels too fragile.
Packaging is very cool. Few decals sheets included to create your own livery but I ain't gonna use it.
Limited to 500.

Got it from Australian In2Models.com
It was the last they had.
But Gateway Models have it in stock.
Go to http://www.gatewaymodels.com.au" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
Type "Ford FG White" in search bar.
The price is 180 AUD but 10% is deductable GST tax.
So it will be around 160 AUD plus shipping which could be 50-100 AUD.
Auspost is expensive and so are Australian models.

Also there is rivaling Holden VE Commodore in Plain White available.

The model seem to be of same quality.

Also check your local http://www.linpin.ca/" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
They sell Classic Carlectables including V8 Supercars though no plain bodies.

These look awesome without the livery. Either Biante or CC made them in black as well...looked sinister.

Gavin,
Yeap, there are few plain bodied V8 Supercars / ATCC cars by Biante.

That's the most bad ass - Ford XE body:

BTW, I used your photos of Carlectables car showing removable engine cover on the other forum.
Hope you don't mind. :beer:



Kraftig,
What did you order at Linpin? :poke:
