Sorry - this item is no longer available.

28mm Model-of-the-Month (extra) for September is the Small Wagon Pack.

This is the "extra" Model of The Month for September 2017.  It'll be on sale from Sept 1st to Sept 30th - then "retired".

As usual, this is an unpainted kit.  It contains three models, a "Tumbrel" wagon, a Hay cart and a Pony cart.

BUILD INSTRUCTIONS:

All three wagons are on a single sheet:

First locate the parts for the Pony cart.  Note that you have a choice of spoked or solid wheels.  If you buy two wagon packs - you could get some variety by making one wagon with spoked and another with solid wheels.   NOTE: These are the smallest of the three wheel sizes in the kit:

.Glue the main axle into the slot at the back of the cart:

Glue the two cross-braces into the top of the cart:

Glue the two side pieces in place - notice the cutouts for the drivers' seat go at the front:

Glue the back of the cart in place:

Glue the driver's seat into the slots on the sides:

Glue either spoked or solid wheels onto the axels:

 

TUMBREL WAGON:

Locate the parts for the Tumbrel wagon.  As with the Pony cart - you have a choice of wheel types.  You'll need two of the largest wheels and two of the medium sized ones:

Glue the rear axle into the large slot in the wagon base:

Glue the front axle mount into the front hole:

Place (DON'T GLUE) the front axle onto the axle mount, then glue the small disk to hold it in place without preventing it from turning:

Find the cross-tree part:

Glue that onto the main shaft:

Locate the driver's seat and front railing parts:

Glue the driver's seat in place - lining up (but not blocking) the holes underneath:

Glue the front railing in place into the holes:

Glue the two side railings in place - notice the cutouts that wrap around the driver's seat:

Glue the rear railings in place:

Choose the wheels you want:

Glue the LARGEST wheels to the rear axle and the MEDIUM wheels to the front axle:

All done!

HAY CART:

Locate the parts for the hay cart.  You'll be using whichever set of medium-sized wheels that you didn't use for the Tumbrel:

Glue the axle onto the underside of the cart base:

Glue the two sides onto the base - angle them outwards and make sure that the sloping edges are at the front of the cart:

Angle them outwards:

Glue the two support parts onto the sides of the cart:

Again, make sure everything is sloping outwards:

Glue the decorative bar onto the top of the front piece of the cart bed:

Glue that between the sloping sides of the outer parts fo the wagon sides:

Glue the read panel onto the cart:

These carts had detachable extensions for carrying large numbers of lightweight hay bales.  You can either omit them or glue them in place.  They snap around the outer wooden parts:

Glue the wheels onto the axle and glue the two rectangular plates onto the sides of the wagon - they should protrude slightly beyond the sides as shown:

All Done!

Thanks for the order! We don't advertise much - and most of our customers have been with us for a long time. Several have actually ordered every single kit we make(!) - which strongly suggests that they like what we do.

If you have any problems whatever - don't hesitate to let us know.

This will be my first order from you guys. Looking forward to checking out the quality and adding to my tabletop experience!

We did consider that for a while - I was going to make a complete chariot racing game (rules, scenery and chariots + horses & charioteers) - but it rapidly became obvious that doing it in 28mm (or even 15mm) was going to be tough - and laser cutting down at 10mm scale and below gets silly. My son made me a 3D model of a chariot+horses+driver that could be 3D printed - and that's something we're still considering.

But we could certainly look into it for 28mm. I guess I imagined that chariots would be more in the realms of figurine manufacturers.

We really haven't gotten into the "ancients" stuff yet. I think it would be an interesting direction to go in. Maybe in some future MoTM we should look into that. The joy of MoTM is that we can go wherever the customer needs take us!
