18th Century coach

I was looking for a commercially available coach but couldn't find one that I liked that was affordable. I asked about for advice and finally came to the conclusion that I would scratch build one. The wheels are from Irregular miniatures, the team from Old Glory and the figures used are converted from ones bought at Guildford Courthouse battle site. The only addition I may make is to put some coach lanterns of if I happen to find any available. I'm not sure how I would scratch build them effectively. So all in all, this was free to build (in a way) as as the bought bits were from my bits box.


  1. This coach is really splendid...great blog too!

  2. Hello, Richard. I found this page via Jim Purky's DAF site. Very impressive work on the coach. As regards the coach lanterns, you may have some joy at a place selling bits for modellers of wooden ships. Perhaps there is a ship's lantern that could be more easily modified? Love the music on this site by the way. Cheers, Rohan.

  3. That is a great idea thanks. I'll see what I can find. I'm off to York next weekend and will see if Ainsty or Irregular have anything.
