Hi Tony,

Thanks for looking in, I have finished the wood part

of both doors and now working on fitting the lining.
Not

sure about the second Stage Coach, what I mean Tony is that

this is a good model for the money but there are areas the

need attention which I have thought about and will alter when

I build it.

More soon keep looking.

Regards

Trev.


Cheers for the update Trev.

You really are doing a great job on a difficult looking kit. I have had this one for some time and while i have looked at it a few times its been packed away again. Will get there one day with it.

Hope your continues well..

Tony

Trev,

You work is excellent and i have been following you on this from the strat. I hope to also jump in.

Question: do you have any idea what the purpose the double bottom on the coach serves? Could it contain ballast for the suspension?

Comments from you on the possible second build. Why oak? Hard and wide grained wood. Where would you apply it?

Thanks,

Tom

Hi Tnequette,

Thanks for following my build,if I use Oak it will be on the chaise as I know it will be stronger plus I can polish it, also I have no idea regarding the double bottom you may be correct saying that it would be used for balance ?

Reason for Oak: Better than the kit wood.

Thanks again

UPDATE: 14.7.19.

Hi,

Well the doors have taken a lot longer than I thought, after sanding and shaping to match the curve of the coach body the next stage was to french polish and fit the leather upholstery to the in side of the doors.


First was to cut a thin piece of ply the the same size as the inner side of the door,this will make a good base to work with,I then trimed a piece of soft foam and glued it to the lower part of the door,after waiting for it to dry I then cut a piece of soft leather that was over sized folded the corners and glued.


Next part was to make a paper pattern showing squares then laying it over the soft leather and using 5mm pins pushed each one into each corner push through into the wood back as far as they would could go,then I turned and cut the back of the pins off then glued to make all secure

Thanks for looking more soon

Trev.






PS.Having trouble sizing pictures and posting get back soon.

Glad to see you sorted your picture posting issue.

Buttoned panels look really neat and what a smart way of producing these using the pins.

Gives a very realistic upholstered look to things.

Looking really good Trev, well done and I love what you've done with the buttoned leather seat, very effective indeed! Cool ThumpUp

Will you be painting the pin heads black to match the leather?

I was looking at the model trailways coach earlier which in appearance is very similar in finish to the amati version.

With the model trailways you make up the seats from lengths of half round dowel you have to shape and round over at the fronts. These small sections are then glued together to form the seats.

Must admit i much prefer the look of what you get in the kit you are building.
