My 1/87 scale modeling Dutch friend Jeroen van der Ven, scratch built this wagon in styrene. The unusual terminal gear (which is p.e. brass)  is a device for lifting draught horses from the canal tow path. More of Jeroens work here:

Beautiful work, and very interesting prototypes. The bar is pretty high in HO these days.

Hi All,

First post here. I saw this thread on old wagons and couldnt help but to post one I built. This was built for a friend of mine. He asked me to build it as a Christmas gift for a friend of his. His friend has this old wagon on his farm and my friend (whew, this is getting a little confusing!) took me there and I took pictures so that I could build this model. I built it in 1/12 scale and did really light weathering. No rotting boards or crumbly rust. I wanted a wagon that looked like it was used every day. I think it turned out pretty well and so did my friend who decided to keep it for himself.  Grin
