A beautifully detailed kit of a six-horse United States stagecoach, which was used during the 'Wild West' period (1820's - 1900) by the likes of Wells Fargo & Concord.
These stagecoaches are an amazing piece of American history, and reproductions can often be seen at parades and fairs across the country.
The scale is 1:10 and the kit is very detailed, the cabin, wheels and chassis are finely realised miniatures of the full size coach, but are quite easy to assemble, thanks to the materials (which are laser cut for the wood parts and photo etched for the metal parts), and very comprehensive construction plans and instructions.
The Amati Stagecoach is fitted with a full compliment of luggage and two exact scale Winchester rifles (both modelled in wood and brass) are included with the kit, together with leather material for the seats - brass buckles for the leather straps found both on the luggage and carriage itself - even a padlock for the money chest!
We would class this as a medium difficulty build, as some previous experience is most likely needed to get the most from this kit.
Dimensions of completed model:
- Length overall (with front pole) - 695mm (419mm without pole)
- Height (Excluding luggage) - 278mm
