Love this Harry! Not many people who scratch build appreciate the satisfaction of building from wood. Great job with the wheels too! Hardest part when building from scratch I always find. I found cocktail sticks came in rather useful for spokes! ;) Fantastic model!!

Progress is progressing! Slowly but slowly. Other side of wagon interior now done. Woodburner bit of a challenge. Too many tiny "fiddly" bits. Especially the logs. Trying to make something real, gathered from the garden actually look real, by burning on a flame from a cig lighter! Without totally torching something so tiny, was another challenge! All comments welcome. Cheers, Andy.
