This is is about as close as i can find



They can easily be painted silver to fairly resemble the ones you'd like, it is the Tommy Kaira Pro R 17" by fujimi

The Revell Focus is based on an 03 so it'll have the five spokes, not the new badass six spoke design

The Revell SVT Focus WILL be out in late March, after being delayed almost a year cause Revell had a change in ownership, and there also manufactuering all there kits in China now. so they had to hire all new workers and get the molds across the pond

its deffinently coming in March though, as well as the Escallade, the Box Art models have been built and are prohibably shooting pics of them right now

This forum rocks!!!
Thanks for the help...digitalbanzai those are perfect wheels, all I have to do is etch the details into them! THanks for the great find.
That's my '04 SVT!! I got it on Tuesday. I absolutely love it. My co-worker likes the 5-spoke design better on his '03 SVT, but I really like the 6-spokes.
I was driving a '91 Honda Civic lx(now my little brother's) and I'm just super impressed with the power and feel of this Focus...and that's why I can't wait to build a model of it!
Thanks again guys
BTW I'm almost done with the roll cage/gauge panel on the 510 track car.

Thanks to digitalbanzai for the wheel suggestion, I finally put this Maisto kit together( I know its die-cast) and added some disc brakes from an old aristo kit, painted little bits on the interior, painted trunk lid trim body color and lowered it.



Added somel detail to the Tommy Kaira to try and replicate the SVT Focus wheels

Added a larger exhaust, BMF'd it
