I don't know but it could probably be made to. Dave Bradwell produced this kit long before the Hornby body was produced so this particular version of the kit makes no provision for that but if it is only the fixing points - body to chassis - then it might be capable of adaptation. Dave might have modified the actual kit to fit the Hornby body since I bought these. E-mail him and ask the question!
The Bachmann bodies, themselves, do need some surgery (which is detailed in the instructions) in order for the chassis to engage correctly with the underside of the footplate.
I'll photograph the top of the chassis', when the builds are a little further advanced, so that you can form a view as to how suitable it might be.
