This is just the amazing model.

I buy a vintage carriage model from eBay that it is wood and paper construction but the wheels they are plastic. It is the Pennsylvania Dutch buggy...

K-G-Lala; The physicians buggy that I built is also known as the Amish buggy. The Boxy one is the one more associated with the Amish and it is mostly used for trips to the market and everyday use. The wheels were a point of contention that held me back from making my coaches but once I designed the jig, the rest came easy, at least for now.


How big is the model that you bought? My model is about 1/16 scale. and It is almost ready for the download section. I forgot to draw and design the brake apparatus for the plans. It will be done in Line Drawing and you will have to paint it to your taste. It does not have to be done wood, It was usually painted at the whim of the owners and to protect the wood.

While wagons/buggies are not an area of interest for me, meticulous design and construction of any type of model is always of interest. These vehicles of yours are exquisite; I await the Conestoga with great interest.

The Carriage

Here are some schematics for this carriage. I will post them later in the download section. If you plan to use these schematics look for the outline around the edge and crop the pictures to the out line mark. when you do a print preview, change the aspect to landscape for the bigger version, about 1/16 scale. If you leave it at portrait, it will come out at approximate 1/24 scale.

Due to the laminations and the details this model as well as my other carriages models are done in black line drawings. It is up to you to paint it as you wish. All of my carriages are actually Betas. my objective is to make them out of thin modeling basswood and sell them later on.

The only thing about hitting the commercial markets with your own handi-crafts is that when you start to sell them commercially, it is no longer a hobby but a job, and a deadline.

Copy these plans to your computer and then proceed as mentioned above.
