Horse models?

Postby jon price » Thu Apr 24, 2014 3:48 pm

I was sure there were several suppliers who made draught horses but I can only find Dart Castings, and Langley (who supply them with their own vehicles). Anyone know of any more?

Have a look and see if any of these from WD Models would suit. Also, P&D Marsh and various ones on Ebay.

You might also look at:

Shire Scenes

See Supplier Text for address/website

R Parker

19 Oaklands Road, Malvern Wells, Worcestshire, WR14 4JE.

There appear to be two or three different horses. They are not apparantly available separatly but it is worth asking off course. This range includes a number of rather nice road vehicles, not well known as there is no website.

I think (I am no equine expert) the WD harness is a military rig which is different to the general civilian arrangement of harness. However, I doubt most people would be aware of this and I am using WD horses in a civilian role. The most obvious difference is that absence of the collar.
