Looks good guy. Those lanterns are going to be a touchy piece of work in 3D. Should look great when you finish.

Just a cylinder with the top and bottom pieces edge-glued. More effort than some would want to take, so I included the flat lanterns to be glued on the side. I think most of the 'gamers' would take that option, while 'modelers' will do 3d.

I really like the look of this thing. It's been off and on my to-do list for years

Well, printed off and clear coat is drying. Extra wheels to give raised rims and hubs. Extra window panels to have recessed windows



Wish me luck

I think I need to start with all the fold-overs, like the wheels, axles, etc.

I was late this evening for a get-together (where the air conditioner wasn't keeping up with the heat) and I'm just getting back. And I have zero energy.

There was one error on the chassis where I had uncolored a section to use as a guide for measuring and didn't put it back on the file posted. There are too issues besides this: The little steps at the back are too stinking fiddly, so I'm going to delete them from the final file, and the fold lines are too dark and non-distinct. I did a quick fix on the last part, but still not distinct enough. Going to require some more thought.

But not until tomorrow.

This does show the importance of test builds. This afternoon, I really had no problems (the red on the chassis is as close to the color of my red edging felt tip as luck could possibly have it). The fold lines showed better before clear-coating, and since I designed it, I knew where to look for them, but I would never expect anyone else to get it right until the files are fixed.

Real life has a way of changing plans...

Got all the spokes cut out on the wheels. Should have the wheels done in a few minutes. Got the fold lines fixed. The hitch cross-piece now is a laminated piece, instead of a box that glues over the front of the hitch. Should finish it up tonight and be able to post the final version.

Once this is all done I'll have to get it into the hands of the guy who has possession of the Coaching Inn and see if he'll take some photos

Down to the lanterns





For the steampunk version, I'm going to widen it, too

Hmmm, yeah. I thought it looked a bit top heavy for steam power speeds. Here's a proper one for ya ...



I've also found some older pics of the Tyn-y-Coed Mail coach. Taken before the re-build. My memory has been screaming "But it was Yellow!" at me ever since this subject was raised. Turns out it was right after all.

In the video, they switched to the traditional Royal Mail Maroon and Black with red wheels and undercarriage.

Some were yellow, but I don't recall seeing any yellow and blue. Something tells me that the proprietors just picked colors they liked.

For the steam carriage, it is going to have a simple boiler at the back in the rear box, and a platform for the engine man. A fusion of ideas taken from real steam carriages of the early to late 1800s.

Some of the later steam carriages had the mechanicals under the frame between the wheels. I'm basically looking at putting a box under there with either a chain drive going to the rear wheels or pistons
