Show and tell. This section has been included at the request of one of our members – Popsarsi, thanks pops! Display a picture or pictures of anything of interest and then tell us about it. Not how to make carrot cake or get stains out of your underwear, but things broadly related to our hobby! If you have one model or several models you have made then please post pictures of them in this section, along with information on the timbers you have used, how long it took to make the model, what scale is it made to, and the history and use of the vehicle – in fact anything of interest about the model! ~~ jraah ~~

Default 1:8th scale Sydney Brass Sulky

Hi to All, been a while since I've posted anything, but, here's my latest effort.
I used many different new techniques, to get it to look correct.

First photo is of the ACTUAL vehicle, that the model was made to resemble.

regards greenie

This model presents just a whole new level of......I'm not sure what word to use...the ones that come to mind don't do justice to the craftsmanship displayed.

Is this model really 1:8 scale?
It's the most detailed model I have ever seen! Beautiful !
What is the size of the model Greenie?
Can you show us some of your new techniques please?
Specially how you painted those golden patterns.

Regards
Peter

Hello greenie mate and welcome back to the forum.
I do hope you will stay around for a while and wont ‘bugger-off’ to soon!

That is a beautiful model and that decal work is outstanding; I just don’t know how you can get such a high standard of neatness and accuracy.
I have tried applying decals a few years ago….It was total CRAP!
I would love to attempt doing it again – you might have given me a bit more inspiration.

I believe H. H. Stokes (on the brass name-plate) was one of the two most renowned builders of Sydney Brass Sulkies at that time.

So it would be able to get up to quite a good speed – if that brass petrol filler cap by the drivers right foot and the starting handle under the seat is anything to go by! Or am I way off the mark?

I keep looking at it again and again! The decal work is amazing – on the elliptical springs, the axle clips, on the inside of both sides of every spoke, and look at the work around the wheel hub, those half-moon or dish shaped decals that are between the brass rivets in the hub cap – every single one is the same as the next, and perfectly placed!

I have made a few close-up images (I hope you don’t mind greenie)
This is the full-size sulky.
This is the model.

Take a good close look…greenie has produced the pin striping EXACTILY AS IT SHOUL BE!!
