This body may work... 🤔 HPI 1973 Ford Bronco Body Part number #7179

eBay body arrived today… now to see if I can make it fit. I wonder if Corally will ever make some replacement bodies. There don’t seem to be any in UK?

Fitted…. I think it is a reasonable alternative to the official Corally body, especially as it is never available.

It wasn’t too tricky to fit and only required some modest trimming, I was also able to retain the middle tower as well.

Arguably the best thing is that it only cost £22.00!

All I need now is some longer body mount posts. I might have to make some.

Hey All,

I might've found some alternate body solutions for the Sketer. Here is a picture of the Axial SMT10 next to the Sketer.


And here's the Grave Digger body sitting loosely on top the Sketer:


I'm not 100% sure, but it looks like it could be a good fit. If, so that could open up a lot of possibilities, as the SMT10 is a pretty popular platform with lots of aftermarket body options available.
Unbreakable (I hope) Arrma Big Rock body from TMT now fitted. I had to do quite a bit of trimming, but I am quite happy with the result.

I also added wheel extensions (13mm) to ensure the front wheels cleared the body.
