Talking Explorer Sport Trac Overland

ok, i got tired of my H1 so i stuck this plastic sport trac body on. i used the hummer mounts and glued them to the inside of the sport trac. Since the body was a bit longer i had to modify the OL so that it would fit(talk about a pain) The longer wheel base helps with the roll problem though so that was nice. Keep in mind i need to re paint it because of the triming i had to do for the wheel articulation. I think it turned out real nice and now it matched my actual sport trac(ill have to take a pic of them together now) There are tons of pics in my gallery, check them out

I'll be honest, I am not much of a pickup fan.
But that looks fantastic

Good work. I'm not much of a Ford fan, but I will admit you did an excellent job on it. It's nice to see some more pick-ups on the OL. (Off-Topic a little, but I like that Mini Cooper in one of the pics in the background as well.

Thanks guys,, for the record the sport trac is an SUV on the ford web site lol,, I think its a truck though,, half a truck anyway.

The Mini Cooper in the background is a apair Zip-Zap body on some lego wheels..its kind of cool, it came with working tail lights and headlights

Not a fan of pickups either, but looks good, scale seems to be just right. Just get rid of those Hummer wheels

The Hummer wheels look good on it.

Anyways, Sporttracguy, I don't think you could have come any closer to the real thing! Keep up the good work.

Awesome Sport Trac! My mom has one, it's a 2001 Sport Trac with NO Sport package (a standard now), and nearly loaded, including 4WD. I love that body you've done!
