Questions About Kusan K-Series Boxcars

Good Evening Everybody.

Neophyte O gauger here (though I am now a subscriber and supporter!). As I initially stated when I first joined this site, what led me here was a purchase of a Kusan battery powered set. While the bulk of my motive power seems to be Marx at the moment, the Kusan models are setting the pattern for my freight. That said, I really rather like the boxcar. While I know it is 10% smaller than true 1/48, I like that it seems to have no problems navigating O27 (unlike the poor battery powered Beep, whose motor I may have effectively killed due to overheating).
I purchased a Marx plastic boxcar in the hopes that it would be of similar size, but alas it is almost dead-on 3/16 (I seem to have remembered that too late). The Menards' cars look nice, but I am getting mixed information about their size.
So, who ended up with the dies for the Kusan K series? Are there any other manufacturers with similarly sized cars? Am I tilting at windmills? Is this an impossible dream? Where is Sancho Panza?

Thanks!
