Cool Build, John. I'm jealous. All I get in my free time right now is a paint brush and a bucket of porch paint.

VK, thanks. I bought the set. It has some other things that I can use later on for future dios.

George, thank you also. I hope you can get back to the really important national and international things (i.e. Model Design and Build) when the nor'easters start blowing.

John

Turning out very nice. Good job on the horses and driver so far.

As an aside patricia m has an old french print of a coach at a way station posted on her Flickr site. It is one of those semi-3D cut outs.

About in the middle of the page titled Les Transport D'Autrefois.

Doug,

Thank you!

This is going to be a much longer project than I had anticipated, but that is Murphy's Law. I had hoped to finish this and my Tri Sigma project by November. It may not happen, since I keep adding ideas.

So, here is where I am to date (see photos). I have the 1st Tudor coach finished with the exception of the steps, cargo, reins and driver. The four Dormers are finished and I have all the parts cut for one wall of the Guild Hall end of the structure. In addition, I have the Fodor basic coach body assembled and the trim parts cut out. I added a former in the center of the coach, so that I could apply more pressure while gluing and forming the curve of the roof. I also have all the parts cut out for one of the rear wheels.

At this point, the double door on the wall will be recessed by 2 layers (see spacers in center of second photo). I have not decided whether to partially open one door. If I do, l'll have to thicken them to at least 2MM. In that case, I will probably not recess the doors, but thicken the door frame to match the door. I will have to make a decision on that soon.

This is how I'd wanted to do this from the git-go, but I was in a time crunch on submitting it for the Medieval Mayhem Hoard, so I did the test-build without the extra detail. It's a large enough piece that I didn't need a second one.

The Guildhall ended up being my favorite part of the three buildings. I still want to go back and do a Rathaus version of it ... sometime

VK,

Any suggestions on how you would like something portrayed, please let me know. If my skills are up to the task, I will incorporate it. I have a plan for the bay windows, except for the tops. Were the sloped tops leaded glass or wood with roofing material?

John

On the images I grabbed them from, it looked more like a thin sheet of metal over the windows that didn't protrude much from the building. Also looked like it had been painted over multiple times with black paint that had faded.

Thanks, I can do that. That would also indicate that the side glasses were only about half the width of the front glass panels.

If that. It may have only been about a third
