18th century Post - Chaise

The Mk 4 carriage for Bodstonia, a "post-Chaise"
I didn´t 100% copy the designs I found on the web, most of them have a set of springs  front and back but adding them raised the whole Thing too high so they were removed.
Wheels from various Airfix sets, the nags from Revell´s Imperial artillery set, the rest, cardboard, copperwire, piano wire, staples,  expanded foam and a pinhead for the doorhandle.
The reins were added  but a driver bod (a suitable one) is needed..as with all but one (the One horse Chaise)  of the carriages.

The collection so far (the cab on the MKI definately needs changing for another)
