16mm scale Groudle Glen Coach

Completed coach

Job done! A very enjoyable build of this 16mm scale, laser-cut wood kit.

It's not perfect of course, what kit is? Picky Phil would point out the the underframe truss detail should be set back from the steps. The bogies needed detail on the side. The non-door side of the body is missing a vertical spar at the guards end. The GGR half-lasered lettering is nice but unprototypical. And stupid people can fit the seats upside down.

That said, it is fun to do, easy to assemble, well designed and most importantly looks good. And I will definitely be ordering another (and a Sea Lion to pull them), which probably tells you all you need to know. A rake of these wending it's way through the garden would look fantastic.
