Sprocket 9,185 Posted May 7 Report Share Posted May 7 Forgot I had this in the stash, I was reminded about it by the King Charles lll Coronation this weekend, I re-found it up in the loft and got it down. I got it a few years ago and it was in a terrible state, the wheels were broken with the spokes sheared off the rims, looked like some kid had tried to glue the Cherubs back to front, so I had to chisel them out of britfix. But it came together well as nothing was missing. I got it back and started assembly by constructing the Chassis, then the cabin, painting the inside and making the glazing from plastic clear sheet. There are still several parts to fit. two Cherubs blowing conch shells that are positioned on the fore carriage. I also have a lamentable Horses and postillions set to go with this, but it is awful, the horse tac is falling into fragments and the horses and Postillions (riders) are badly represented. (I'll show them later) I remember now why I stalled on this, the paintings on the side are the wrong scale for the model, so I need a colour photo copy machine with scale adjustment. I will keep this down and have a restart on it after Titanic, and before the really large project of 2023, HMS Victory. 4 Quote Link to post Share on other sites
