Managed to finish the upper carriage framework today along with the little "Go To Hell" stove. I have no idea why the stove is called that but can imagine a few scenarios. The ends are made from plywood and the canvas support strips are oak, steamed and then fixed in place. The lower body is made from basswood. Still trying to figure out a way to make the front door open and close.
So far it's looking pretty good. The next fun part will be constructing the undercarriage and the wheels. Once that's done it's on to the small details which will really flesh it out.
Lots of photos in the Gallery and your comments are welcome as always. Tomorrow I hope to finish up the horses's head.
