good evening everyone

 

doors

 

there was one one hinge supplied instead of 4, replacements come from the states, so i raided the wife dolls house spare parts found 4 and fitted, both doors open

just handle to fit

glazing

a simple job, but rather than paint the glazing strips black i did them antique gold, it looks ok

the very thin plastic film was protected in a p[plastic envelope, but for some reason it is marked by the outline of the photo etch decoration which was also in a plastic envelope - spooky,  i did to clean it off somehow

seat

wasnt happy about just painting it brown, so i covered it in leatherette, then put a piping around it to hide the white edges, this them made it to wide for the kit supplied back rest so made one out of brass

that's just galloping along, like your seat base, looks the part.

i think another kit like this could be adapted very nice into something else,

I bet the local undertakers would pay a premium for a model like that in their window, in a glass case, you could write your own cheque.

I've been following this thread with the occasional giggle, because me old dad arranged his own funeral and organised a horse drawn hearse. It was typical of the old boy to embarrass his offspring right to the very end, it seemed like the whole village turned out to watch and every man and his dog was out in their front garden pointing at the old fashioned hearse, with it's black horses and ostrich feather plumes and pipers marching in front. People asked 'was he Scottish?' and we're going no, he just liked pipes. Very East End, except he couldn't have been more Essex if he tried. He would have loved this.

Good morning everyone

 

this little project is quickly coming to an end

the front suspension was made up along with the 5th wheel (steering head), primed and gloss black top coat

 

everything apart from the wheels is now finished and ready to be attached

my next post will be in a couple days with the final reveal

Excellent Horse drawn model Kevin, you've got the paint and decoration just right. The whole thing looks very dignified. I'd like to see how you're planning to display the finished model.
