Wow. That's an absolutely beautiful model. The pinstriping looks fantastic. There is a lot to look at in the stagecoach - the small details, "leather". Very nice.

I find old wagons and such where I work - mostly farm equipment, no stagecoaches yet - but they share some if the same engineering (brakes, axles, etc.). We found one wagon last year with a WA license plate from 1918 on it.

Nicely done. Great pin striping also. Very realistic, right down to the axle nuts!

They are made by Model Trailways and are available from Model Expo.

The kits have pretty high retail prices, but they are constantly on sale. You just have to check in every so often and see if they are on sale. Since I have already ordered from them in the past I get all the sale email flyers... not sure how it works if you've never ordered from them. If you are serious about wanting to buy one of the kits, PM me and I can send you the special sale offer code that you would need to get the sale price.

That is one sweet build my friend.

 

On a side note, many decades ago Silver Dollar City in Branson MO. had a REAL one of these serving as a parking lot shuttle. OMG the ride was horrific and that was only 5 minutes from the lot to the park entrance.

Here's a typical piece of mail from the 1850s that traveled from California to New York, possibly in Harry's stage coach. If only it could talk!

 

The post office issued our first stamps in 1847, but they weren't fully in use for a few years.
