'08 Honda Civic Type R

Does anybody know anything about this RC toy?
Check out ebay item number 270278126176.
It is a racing Honda Civic, look's like an '08 Hatchback model. The seller told me it is in fact 1/28 in scale, and plastic body. This look's like it would make a sweet project for an MR15 HM chassis. What do you think?
Here is the description of the model.

Manufacturer: China
Character: Honda CIVIC TYPE R Enjoy Racing
Size: 15 x 5.5 cm
Height: 4.5 cm
40.xxx MHz radio frequency control
1:28 scale
Speed: 7 Km/h
New and licensed : Licensed by Honda Motor Co.,Ltd
Quantity: 1
QUALITY IS 100% GUARANTEED ( Test before Shipping )
Forward, backward, right / left turning -4 direction keystroke
Car uses 2 x AAA batteries (not included)
Controller uses 2 x AA batteries (not include)
Dimension: (the car): 15 x 5.5 x 4.5 cm (L*W*D);
Dimension: (the controller): 5.8 x 4.3 x 3.2 cm (L*W*D)
Operating range: No less than 12m.
Weight: 300g

Will the size, "assuming it's accurate" will fit MR15 HM?

They are 1/28, I bought one in Thailand (Yellow hat Toyota Supra: http://mini-zracer.com/mini-zgallery...y.php?cat=1082) when I was there from the same brand, they would fit a mini-z chassis, you need to do some customizing though. Wouldn't recomend it for racing as the bodies are pretty heavy. I never got to it.

These seem to be new models, love the BMW also. shipping is more expensive than the toy itself, lol.

Interesting, thanks babstar. It would just be nice to expand the 1/28 scale collection and I love the street red Civic. What's the quality of the bodies like? I'm sure their no where near comparison to Kyosho quality, but are they good enough to display theme side by side? Would the Civic be suitable for MR15 HM? I'm surprised the bodies are heavy considering they are plastic. Heavy maybe advantage, maybe very durable!
