Just a few quick shots of my latest Work in Progress.

It's a steam coach with a twist.....the horses are steam powered not the the coach!!

It's based on plastic "Wedding Favor" I picked up for about £1.00. It has been slightly re-worked with a scratch-built interior a brake lever and a front kick-board added.
I'm going to be using some Mage-Knight steam horses to pull it.
All told it's cost me about £4.00 in materials!!!!

I've just found a suitable driver which i will convert over the weekend.

Just get an UEFA umpire. Once it leaves the coaching zone, it will be reprimanded. Laugh

Seriously, great idea, fine execution, and I damn right cannot wait to see the finished piece!

Yeah all true but we already know it will be absolutely awesome.

The wedding favour shop should get these for sale on a wargames website somewhere though as they would probably sell more - yes I would like one myself

I like it!

Nice twist, the horses steam powered.
