All You South Westerners! "the Big Hitch" Parade is this Saturday in Ketchum Idaho, it's the largest non motorized parade in the West!
Even though they had a disastrous fire the last two weeks they are still going on with the parade, Wagons and Surreys, and horse teams, even big fat Cabieros with beautiful Mexican horses and Senioritis clad in silver!
Don't miss it if your near, I'm going

Actually not a kids wagon. It is from Europe and is used to haul vegetable crops from the fields. A lot of them were imported to US in the 80s and sold as antiques in the shops.

Of course there will be a lot of pictures posted here of the parade for us who can't be there to see.

An attempt to bring this forward. Hate to see the wagons buried. Wish more would model them.

That tank in the background (compressed air?) is interesting. It's put together like a big spiral-wound, riveted pipe.

I thought we had seen the last of those beautiful wagons but that one is as gorgeous as anything I've seen. -- Russ

Could you (or anyone else) please point me to a tutorial on making wagon wheels like these?
Thanks, Carlo

Russ, you have definitely OVER EXERTED yourself with such a 'glowing oratory', I do thank you ----------------- Wink Wink Wink Wink Wink Wink Wink


Carlo, if your going to make a WAGGON wheel, then please do a lot of research on the particular vehicle that you want to model, as not ALL wooden spoked wheels are the same as what is in those tutorials. A "waggon wheel" is a lot heavier in construction, than what a "buggy wheel" would be.

What is written in those tutorials, is just a "generalization" of how I do wheels.

Greenie your model reminds me of why I became interested in model-building, way back when I was a kid and saw models like yours though probably no where near as beautifully made. They were in the science museum in London and I spent hours looking at them.
There is a museum south of here called the Remington Carriage Museum http://www.history.alberta.ca/remington/ they have a section that the public can view where they still repair and make carriage wheels.
