Stagecoach 1

 

I am beginning to cast a new work that will be a bronze stagecoach. This stagecoach is intended to be a submission to the Calgary Stampede for 2020.

I am basing this casting on a wooden model kit. At the moment I am not planning on casting the horses for the stagecoach. These will be custom made if I decide to sculpt these later.

This casting will be my largest work to date. I suspect it will be about 2 kilograms of bronze.

The pictures below show some of the wax work and casting for the frame.

After casting the frame and assembling the parts I made wax models for the floor and front wheel assembly. My next posting will continue with the casting of these pieces.
