A Fine Scratch-built Coach

I have been following the progress of this 18th Century coach model, built by Richard Watts, on various Internet forums and it appears that the model is finally finished.

Click on the above link to Richard's blog for more information.

I am beyond impressed by the modeling skill that Richard possesses and I am a little bit envious too.
The wheels come from various figure manufacturers and I believe that the horses are from Od Glory. The driver is converted from a Front Rank Figurines figure. The coach chassis and cab are scratch built from dowel rod and balsa wood. 


  1. That's a very nice looking coach, I like it!

  2. I can see Diana at the reigns and Dr. Maturin holding on to the box for dear life!

  3. Yep, some really impressive modelling and painting there. Might just have to have an eventual try at something like that myself. . . in 2016!

    Best Regards,
