There is very interesting replica by laser scanning work being
carried out by the people at Linsiger in Austria:


The person to contact is Andreas Halander.  I came across their work
in the exhibition at international conference on the use of lasers
in conservation: <URL:>

They are helpful and informative and may be able to put you in
contact with a fellow australian.
