  • Horse drawn wagons

    H-o-o-owdy!!!

    I haven't posted on this board for a Long Time!

    so,



    Old Abraham Willemaker must have decided it would be better to make it all in one trip as old Dobbinspeck has seen her better days and may not have two trips left in her. Not only that, but there is a freeloader that has stolen a ride.

    Greg,

    If that wagon is a Jordan model, these things are really quite fragile. It appears you have done an excellent job in putting it together. Nice modeling.

      Rich,

      Good eye, yes it is a Jordan Buckboard. A couple evenings, some coffee and a radio and you never know what will work its way off my bench.

        Here is another Jordan Buckboard whose owner has been drawn into a 3-way, over the fence confab with Hank at the Kester Oil yard and a passer-by. (Yes, The name Kester Oil was inspired by Harry Brunk's series of articles "Up the Clear Creek" in the NG&SLG)

              Hi Greg. Great wagons. Nicely detailed. They even have whips. Were all the details and the horses part of the kits?

              I really like the settings too. You do really nice work.

                        OK it's time to beat the bushes!

                        quite a while ago this old picture turned up during a search for horse drawn wagons. This came up even though I think it is technically a cart. Oh well, close enough for me.



                        Looking for a project to populate the town of East Bay on my RR, it was decided to shake the junk box and see if I had enough stuff to build a cart like our proud Milkman is sporting.

                        Using a Jordan horse, some wagon wheels a figure and a bunch of styrene scraps, this is how it turned out.



                        The only problem is that our Milkman's chest has inexplicably fallen. Anyone have any ideas how this could happen??

                          Your milkman has aged, Greg.

                          That's a fine copy of the cart in the picture.

                            OK, now that George has weighed in with the answer, I'll agree with what he said. Very nice modeling job.

                              Excellent model, Greg!

                              I suspect he didn’t realize the camera was still on him and he let the air out of his lungs.
