Artesania Latina 1848 Stage Coach Kit, 1/10 Scale
Evolving from designs as early as 1716, the 1848 Stage Coach became the most useful and recognizable of them all. As the only means of cross-country public transportation before the trans-continental railroad, the stage coach played a key role in delivering not only people, but also mail, news and money to the rapidly-expanding west.
This museum-quality, 1/10 scale Heritage Collection replica of an 1848 Stage Coach includes fine-quality high-precision laser-cut wood parts and strips; turned brass pieces, photo-etched details and hinges; simulated leather for driver and passenger compartments; working lights, doors and suspension; wood wheel parts; and detailed step-by-step building instructions with over 400 photos. Recommended for modelers with previous building experience. Length: 15.8 inches; width: 4.9 inches; height: 10.2 inches. Made by Artesania Latina, kit #20340.
Customer Reviews of This Item
I received my stage coach kit 5 months ago and have just finished it(5 to 6 hrs. a day). it turned out beautifully. I have always built wooden ships e. g. the Victory (1500 hrs.) any many others, I enjoy working with wood, not plastic. I can"t say enough good things about this model, the detail was more then excellent! Definently not for beginners.The only problem was all 4 wheel hubs were drilled off centre, a minor fix. I suggest this model for any modeller (advanced) looking for a change, lots of bending & shapeing and glueing and the price is right.
