hey all, i have a very rare kit on my falcon, its not quite an XR kit and its not quite a Tickford one... no one so far can tell me what kit it is. it has USC written in it, yet no one can find information on this company.

now i have had multiple people PM me about where i got the kit from, the front and side skirts were on a car i bought and the rear was found on ebay named a XR kit but from looking at it its FAR from an XR kit... (see pics)

i want to copy this kit from a fibreglasser for my dad and any other members on here who want kits.

my dad has informed me i need t check if its patent?? ect so i dont get sued for doing it. the only other way is to change it in a few ways...

can anyone help me out in how to go about checking on if i can legally copy this kit and resell the copies?

this is an XR kit

and this is my kit - you can see the differences

USC went out of business.
i've seen a few cars with them, but they're not overly common.

USC was "United Sports Cars" of Taren Point, Sydney. They went bust about 7 years ago and not too soon. Their stuff was pretty poor. The kit is a slight variation of the factory Sprint and XR kits.
Actually, the air dam on the blue car is a Sprint. Yours is closer to the XR
I can do stuff closer to genuine than that kit for far less than it'll cost to make moulds off the USC bits.
Cheers, Bob

Do you really think places like AWC, carmate, ssv etc ask FPV etc if they can copy their kits and sell them? lol

i wouldn't worry about infringing copyright in this case. USC are long gone and at any rate, they wouldn't have bothered getting that design registered. Very few do.
