plans for stagecoach?

I have often thought about building an old fashioned Stagecoach. I was wondering if anyone might have plans to build one that they might want to share. I don't have horses and I am not a western cowboy(although John Wayne is still the King)  I just think that building one would not only be alot of fun, but a pretty good challenge, too. Can anyone please help?  Thanks

Here is a source.  For $4,500.00 they can keep them as far as I am concerned.  They do have a fully functional already built one for sale.  $85 grand with no horses included.

 

Good luck on your build.

Re: plans for stagecoach?

If you don't have $4,500, you might wish to invest $35 in plans for a miniature version and just scale it up from this web site:

By the way, the "stagecoach" you see the most is the "Concord Coach" made in Concord, NH by the Abbot-Downing Coach Company.  Most of them were sold to Wells Fargo to transport people and goods in the expanding West.

Doing that is fine, however; will it show all the details to complete full size coach?

Re: plans for stagecoach?

i  see this is an old posting, but i  too  have long wanted to build an authentic stage coach.  been a carpenter and builder for 20  years I also was going to school for architectural engineering. I have looked at the whole idea of scaling up, and this type of build doesn't work properly that way.  there are some pros to having scale plans.  I'm working on my own plans and if your still interested i would be glad to share notes or discuss the build.

I have an old wooden stagecoach model kit if you are interested.  It was made by the ALLWOOD BRAND company and it measures 91/2" long x 61/4" high x 41/2" wide.  Box has been opened but evrything is till there.
