STAGECOACH, A beautifully detailed kit of a United States Wells Fargo Stage Coach, which was used so much during the ‘Wild West’ period. (1820’s – 1900) .

The scale is 1:10 and the kit is very detailed, the cabin, wheels and chassis are finely realized miniatures of the full size Stage 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.

A stagecoach is a four-wheeled public transport coach used to carry paying passengers and light packages on journeys long enough to need a change of horses. It is strongly sprung and generally drawn by four horses.

Widely used before steam-powered, rail transport was available, a stagecoach made long scheduled trips using stage stations or posts where the stagecoach’s horses would be replaced by fresh horses. The business of running stagecoaches or the act of journeying in them was known as staging.

Familiar images of the stagecoach are that of a Royal Mail coach passing through a turnpike gate, a Dickensian passenger coach covered in snow pulling up at a coaching inn, and a highwayman demanding a coach to “stand and deliver”. The yard of ale drinking glass is associated by legend with stagecoach drivers, though it was mainly used for drinking feats and special toasts.
