José.

    After giving the first body painting layer while it dries, I'm moving on hangers, as you can see in the pictures of the four hangers only one had the whole ears, so I had to make a graft to put the eyelets missing the wood used for this purpose was boxwood, this wood is very tough and suitable for this type of work, then be sanded and then the hangers will be golden with dourada.aqui sheet are a few photos to see how I do this work restoration.

    The paint detail is quite amazing on your coaches! And for that reason, I am surprised to see you are spraying on this current restoration, but you certainly know what you are doing. Great work!

    Hi Larry, I'm very grateful to his remarks, and thank you for seeing my work. I agree with you about the paintings, but the coach that I am recovering and restoring, it is even painted in two colors on the outside and inside ivory, plans to build I'm following are original from 1930 and they send paint outside the body to light blue and dark blue, like I'm doing.
    At the moment I'm doing the initial door shield, it is made of several parts as you can see in the image.fischers body coache-002-jpgfischers body coache-001-jpgfischers body coache-001-jpgfischers body coache-003-jpg

    Egon Hi, thanks for coming, good to hear your comments. plans for the carriage of Napoleon, I say come from USA john thompson planes. and the big problem for my coaches that I have made, there are no plans for any lado.então I have to go to the museum to take hundreds of pictures of detail, many drawings and sketches measures to get to the coaches, this is the reason because they spend a lot of time to build, about 2 years. a hug Jose

    This is my favorite coach, I built a few years atrás.ele is not very beautiful, but it is unique worldwide, of Spanish origin sixteenth century, this coach came from Spain to Portugal by road during the visit of King Philip ll in 1619, and stayed here and is on display at the National Coach Museum in Lisbon.
    Very rare régea car copy. this coach is the oldest car in the museum.
    This carriage can be considered archaic face ace features that coaches will come to the box opens with windows suspended by straps replacing the curtains. The exterior is coated with black leather preach drawing geometric motifs, the interior is lined with carved velvet on a yellow background. Under the seat cushions is a useful evacuation system in a vehicle intended for long trips.
    An ark to save travel utensils replaces the driver's seat.
    The structure of the front axle is still heavy and difficult to maneuver the coach was drawn by six horses.
    This model is built will scale 1/10 and took about two years to be built. some pictures for your enjoyment. José Brito.fischers body coache-img_5804-jpgfischers body coache-img_5805-jpgfischers body coache-img_5806-jpgfischers body coache-img_5808-jpgfischers body coache-img_5809-jpg
