Man that is a nice looking stage coach. I’m curious if it’s a replica and if you had any plans or drawings. Very nice work .

Super! I took typing in high school and wood shop and I can’t do that good!? I can’t type worth a darn either.

Well done! You mention pattern, was this a woodworking pattern / plan? I have a friend who would love a stagecoach as a present

Nice, I am also in the middle of building one of these. My granddaughter wanted a 1/12 scale for her Breyer horses. I couldn’t find any reasonably priced plans so I’m going off of a picture. you have done a beautiful on this.

Pattern is one that I got from “Cherry Tree”, I enlarged plan 55% for this one, made some changes to plan based on pictures I found of different Stages, would have loved to be able to see a real one for better idea, or wold have loved to have actual messurements of items….JSM
