I finished this Big Wheels at a scale of 1: 20.3 at the end of last year and I just noticed that I had not posted it.
The wheels were collected on a plastic toy and repainted, they have a diameter of 16cm, I made their hubs out of a round of wood. I took again the principle of Desertdrower, its article allowed me to understand the operation of this machine. The wood used is samba. The whole measures 44cm long.
I still have to make the team of horses, this is the reason why I am with interest the work of Desertdrower

That is really outstanding work, and I'm proud to hear you say my name and build. Thanks very much for the plug.
And, once again, that is fantastic looking work there!

Basically, following this drawing, and using what ever material you wish to use as the leather straps, you can make a believable looking harness for your horse team.
EDIT drawing for teachers pet.

Tres bien, M. Durand. As a former draft horse owner, I like Louis' diagram. But if you're searching for more pictures of the parts, 'martingale' doesn't have a space in it. 'Belly band', 'nose band' and 'throat latch' usually do.
