Holy carp! Stunning work. With a different background, it would be indistinguishable from the prototype.

How did you do that fine lettering and striping? Decals?

All the fancy lettering and pinstriping is done using CorelDraw, then printed onto a clear decal sheet using an Alps MD 5500 printer, I just cant find a 'leprechaun' who can do pinstriping, anybody know where one is hiding, eh. Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin Grin

MPH are you maybe thinking of Ivan Collins? I got my interest in model carriages and wagons from him. I used to hang out in his little wagon museum when it was located on the University of Oregon campus in the elate 1950s.

Been a bit busy and this "thingy" popped out of the shed, tried my hand at making one that's still able to be fitted to a horse.

Here's the full sized one ------





Plenty of photographs with a heap of measurements, then onto the computer and draw it all to scale, then started on it. 

Enjoy ------------

Ray Dunakin, well you should say 'holy cow' as the vehicle is actually an old Milk Cart, Bob Bone found it in a very bad way, but there was enough of the original timber bits left on it, so he could use them as a pattern.

He rebuilt it, but about now here's the problem, Bob had NO cows, but he had plenty of chooks, so it was painted as a Egg Cart.
Notice the two cut-outs at the bottom of the tail-gate at the rear, they were so the spigots on the milk churns, could stick out in the open and be used to fill any empty vessel that you wanted filled with fresh milk.
