KNOW THE HISTORY OF NORTH AMERICAN STAGECOACH
Advanced and expert modelers of a certain age watched American Wild West movies when they were young or old. That is why they were already crazy about this marvel that is the wooden and metal model of the StageCoach 1848 model at 1/10 scale.
These vehicles had circulated from 1716 from Boston to Rhode Island, although the design for which our scale model was taken began in 1820 with the addition of an oval box, two doors, an outer driver’s seat and reinforced triple leaf springs.
Ten years later, Concord Coaches company employee JS Abbot and Troy Coaches company made nearly identical modifications simultaneously.
Stagecoaches were about the only way to travel across the United States from the east coast to the west. They were the predecessors of the railroad. They transported both people and mail and the notification of new laws. Specifically, those belonging to the Wells Fargo company also carried money, gold and silver. Since the beginning of the 20th century, exactly since 1910, they are unfortunately no longer manufactured.
Once its history is known, it is the best time to build the 1/10 scale model of the StageCoach 1848 made by Artesania Latina. It is a scale model that will excite any modeler who wants more difficult challenges.
