White hart inn revisited

With the blessings of VK, I am going to be building his White Hart Inn and coaches. Only this time around, I will be making all those wonderful details that he provided in his designs take on a little more life. I am starting with the coaches to build my confidence and try out ideas. I will only post the ones that work! I will be making enough mistakes to keep you laughing anyway. Anyway, the plan is to only use the details provided in his designs; nothing added from outside sources.

I started with the wheels. Looking at the picture that VK provided of the museum coach, I decided that I needed to fatten the wheels and add a bit more 3D. (I will not be adding rivets and bolt heads.) As I have mentioned in my other builds, I used scissors for 99 per cent of my cutting. I have found a new use for the Japanese Hole Cutter; making pilot holes for my scissors points for small details. It really speeded up cutting out the wheel spokes and ended forever, poking holes in fingertips. So my arbitrary width of wheel became 8 stacked wheels with an additional rim on each side and two hubs stacked on the outward facing side of the wheel. (Pictorial diagram below) It started out being fun, but by the time I cut out the 40th wheel, I had finger cramps.By the way, I forgot to add that this model is the Tudor Coach printed on 65# paper. I have 3 of the wheels assembled and the 4th in process. One of the things to remember is to glue the back to back wheels first. That way, you won't accidentally wind up with a white sided wheel. (Wait; you're all thinking that I did that!)

A nice start. I can't imagine cutting out the spokes with scissors. Your scissors skills are much better than mine

VK, thanks.

Here is where it gets interesting. The attached photo shows my approach to detailing the coach box. The coach box on the left is the basic structure that I will be using. Only the windows are removed in this one, to accommodate the recessed windows included by VK in the kit (small rectangles in the middle). The coach box on the left is the detail supply depot. Some of the cut-outs are finished and all the spots with punch marks were cut out also. .Once the cut-outs were complete, the various pieces were separated (roof/front & back/lower ends).

I forgot to mention, in the last post, that the horses were assembled months ago. I cut out the horses and then traced the outline of one horse onto 4MM foam board, cut out the blank horses and wrapped the 2D horses around the foam board. Nothing fancy, but the foam was easier to work with than 4MM cardboard. (I did use a knife for foam board)

I assembled the standard coach box, with recessed windows, and then glued the cut-outs onto the structure. Photos attached show the result. It ain't beautiful, but it did turn out better than I expected.

Thank you Doug and VK!

I have the carriage bed assembled (with only the front axle, at the moment) and that turning front axle is a marvel. I missed the instructions on how to assemble it, but after studying it for about 20 minutes, I discovered the tick mark, which is the key to the whole thing. VK, you aught to patent that.

Actually, that is someone else's creation. From the Sweet Robo model that's out there. I use the concept a lot

Finished the drivers perch and the wagon tongue. Lousy photo, but will have to do for now. Be offline for 4 days while I take 3 Granddaughters to Williamsburg, VA. I will discuss my building errors when I return.

Have the drivers seat installed along with the axles and two right side wheels. There was a lot of white inside the wheel spokes that needed attention. I dug out my old flat paints for plastic aircraft and was rewarded with the exact match for the coach wheels. With that kind of luck, I should be in some casino. I hope to finish the coach tonight. I have already started cutting out the Fodor blue and gray coach. It should turn out a lot better than this one. I have learned a lot of what not to do on this first one. So here are the photos.
