Let's see how the hardware stands inside.
Covering of the roof with wood and its folding immersed in the water of the upper part.
really nice project, like the details.
are they milled or handmade
Thank you !
Most of the pieces is done all by hand with the help of the jig saw Proxxon DSH.
I used the milling machine Optimum to create the little doors and make some precision hole as those for the wheel axles.
Realization of roof rack rods.
Black painting of rods, roof and radiator's supports.
So awesome. It's starting to look nicer than the originals did. -Of course, the one I've seen was kinda...old.
You have no idea how happy I am to see you have an outdoor paint area. -All that working surrounded by expensive, possibly antique furniture... That would scare the heck out of me!
Ancient effect polishing of frame, wheels and roof with shellac coat. Now it's clearly visible that the paint is polish and it's not matt as once.
It 's true, for working the dirtiest I have another workspace. I will not even think of ruining some furniture
Attachment of the back luggage rack with charger's compartment and cables' transfer.
At the end covering's try with black leather.
Now let's see the roof's beauty.
The shafts' evolution. At the beginning I realized the shafts using a 5 mm full copper pipe but this kind of metal is very ductile and pliable so I decided to use the iron that is stronger than copper even if after an accidental fall of the frame the pipes get curved.
The final solution has been the use of full quenchsteel pipes and I can guarantee that they don't get curved not even for a very little bit.
Some overall view of the stagecoach.
That really is stunning! Amazing job.
Amazing project MPC, very well done.
Heartfelt thanks guys !
This style is not my cup of tea at all.
But the craftmanship I can appreciate very much.
I appreciate your comment !
I noticed that this Mod combines well in all places, even in the living room
With this up I wish you a Merry Christmas!
