These are rather small photo's, if you want the larger one's, go to the link  below.
Click on any photo and when it opens, click onto the FULL resolution and it opens real big, let's everybody see all the mistakes I made :-)

The photos are as perfect as this website software permits. Thank you for taking the trouble to post them. Along with the photos, the model is as perfect as any I've seen. Most satisfactory. -- Russ

Or try this one http://webresizer.com
Its simple (big buttons and instructions) and its free - I normally set the size between 500 and 650 and set the quality to 90 when done download onto your PC
as they only keep your new sizes for 24 Hours - some times it can be a bit slow but since I'v started using Google Crome its pretty rapid and it does show you the loading in a percentage (bottom left corner)

That wagon is a real piece of eye candy! What a beauty!

How did you do the lamps?

I only have a couple of photos of a couple of lamps I made years ago, I'll add them so you can get an idea of how they are made.

The lamps on the Omnibus are of two varieties, the squarish side lamps and the large spotlight at the front.
The side lamps are just a sheet of brass trimmed to be able to bent around to create four sides, done twice for the two and then silver soldered into place.
Into the mill and carefully cut out the two sides to create the area for the light to be seen. The top and bottom bits are just turned from bits of acrylic to the required shapes and glued onto the brass square bit once painted. The red taillights are just bits of busted up  truck taillights and turned to create what should be back there and superglued on. The reflectors are turned bits of ally and polished a stuck inside once it's been painted. Assembled light has a bit of very fine clear plastic cut to shape, folded and shoved into the brass bit as glass face.

The big spotlight is made using a similar technique, only real difference is the polished up ally bit out the front. The body f the spoty is turned O/D and I/D to get it all the correct dimensions, the top and bottom sections are just turned bits of scrap acrylic, the innards is acrylic again, the rear end reflector is polished ally and then it just painted on the inside and outside. The spotty glass is just another bit of clear plastic sheeting I have at hand.

So nothing real special at all, just follow your nose as you make them.

The photo of the bits of the lamps shown are all made from brass, found out the hard way by doing these first ones like that. From there on, any lamps were made using the bits of acrylic, much easier and quicker. Once painted, who can bloody well tell that they are not brass, as per the original ones, eh.

Obviously very simple and ridiculously easy to fabricate. I think I'll go in the other room for five minutes and pop out half a dozen of those babies. -- Russ

Here's another one, it's a 1/12th scale Cart. I found a photo on the web and reckoned it looked alright, so made a few more inquiries and thought, yep, I can do that.

Had to get a bit of help as per dimensions of the vehicle as only that photo to work from, started to draw it on the computer, quite a few adjustments later it was ready.
Into it and this appeared on me bench.

Usual/normal construction methods used, same as for the decals, paint job and anything else that I can't think of now.

First photo is what I found on the web and then different photos of the model.

Any questions, please ask, if no questions, then please enjoy the viewing.
