    The Prancing Pony

    From the album: The Prancing Pony Gypsy Wagon

    This is a closer shot of the gold detailing. 8+ hours of work later this step is done! It's ready for assembly

    From the album: The Prancing Pony Gypsy Wagon

    I stained the interior to get different depths of color for the wood. It still needs to have the relief carvings painted gold.

    The Prancing Pony

    From the album: The Prancing Pony Gypsy Wagon

    I've about finished all of the gold detailing. The is a little left to do on the wheels, but they needed another coat of paint first Painting the gold detailing was painstaking and time-consuming. I used a 10/0 brush for most of it, and a dental pick to clean up the whoopsies. It took a little over 8 hours to do all the gold you see here. Some of these pieces have gold relief on the opposite sides as well. But it's time to start gluing!!!

    The wagon is now glued together and I'm working on some finishing touches. This is a shot of the interior. It's done in dark stain with all the relief carvings painted gold.

    A closer view of the interior. I'll be furnishing and decorating the interior last.

    Another front view with a 4 inch bottle of acrylic paint to give you an idea of scale.

    I always dry fit, over and over again. And it's a good thing! :lol: I discovered a section I forgot to paint. You can't see it until you turn the wagon over. It's the underside of the "ledge."

    From the front. The door will need a little work to make it an opening door, and I'd like it to open both top and bottom, so it's a bit of a puzzle. Again, dry fitting helped me see some of the issues with the door pieces that don't quite align.

    From the album: The Prancing Pony Gypsy Wagon

    I've been staining, painting and varnishing like crazy. Almost all of that work needs to be done on this kit before assembly or you can't access the parts to finish them. But it's almost time to glue! I think I'll do another dry fit first Just to be safe!

    This is the image of a completed wagon from Michelle's Miniatures. You can find more details about the kit at http://michellesminiatures.com/shop/index.php?main_page=product_info&products_id=82

    In this photo you can see the fireplace looking in through the front door. For position, I've used a half scale fireplace surround, and a little "fairy garden" stove I got a long time ago that was sold as half scale, but is really closer to quarter scale. From studying images of the stove inserts in these wagons, they looked like very small cast iron stoves (almost kid sized) and I thought a quarter scale stove might work here. I think this one might be perfect with a little clean up.

    The instructions that come with the kit are very detailed, and even include all the paint colors if you want to paint the kit to look just like the photo. They are also in color and include lots of photos! I did a couple of days of research on the wagons and will be doing the colors for mine quite a bit differently from the kit image.

    This kit is not a tab and slot kit. It has precision cut pieces and fits together very nicely.

    From the album: The Prancing Pony Gypsy Wagon

    I've dry fit the interior wall details. These pieces are again intricately laser etched to appear carved. The owners of the wagons were, many times, highly skilled woodworkers and the carvings on their wagons were representative of their work.

    This is the inside. The back section is a bed, and typically underneath that section is another sleeping compartment behind cupboard doors. In this kit the opening to the upper bed is cut too low. Possibly the accessories would cover this opening, but I don't plan to use them at this point. I had been thinking to open this up, and now it looks like I will do just that.

    The traditional interior layout of the wagon had a fireplace with stove insert on the left hand side (if you are facing the entrance to the wagon.) A chest of drawers was positioned on the right hand side down near the bunk. There was a lamp above the dresser and the dresser top could be used as a table. Benches were on the right across from the fireplace and on the left across from the dresser.

    If you were wondering about the small figure in the wagon, here she is! She is a half scale ball jointed doll (BJD), made with a 3D printer. She is resting here in a half scale Bespaq chair. More about her later!

    From the album: The Prancing Pony Gypsy Wagon

    I decided to do a dry fit the kit to plan painting and staining. It would be too easy to get the steps out of order. This kit is modeled after a traditional Ledge Wagon which were painted dark reds and greens with lots of gold accents. Many had brightly painted details as well, typically depicting flowers, fruits, animals, and horses. The undercarriage was usually painted cream or yellow, again with accents and details painted to bring out whatever design was carved into the wood. The owners of these wagons were very proud of them. The more ornate the wagon, the wealthier the owner.

    This is an intricate, very detailed kit. Everything you need to complete the kit is included, including all trims. It was also neatly packaged with various parts already bagged and labelled. For now I plan to use everything but the interior accessories. I've got plans, BwaHaHa!

    The floor of the wagon comes pre-scored to look like plank flooring.

    From the album: The Prancing Pony Gypsy Wagon

    I've chosen deep colors for the wagon. The exterior will be in Americana Cranberry Wine, undercarriage in Americana Light Buttermilk. I'll be staining the interior for rich wood tones, again adding gold accents.
