This is perhaps my next challenge, I will start very soon. As you know, all my thumbnail animal-drawn vehicles, has a very interesting historical component, hence my interest in building them, but the big problem is that there are no building plans of the same anywhere in the world, then redoubled my work because I have to study the piece, make sketches, drawings, many measurements, many photographs and surveys in order to build the vehicle shall desired ratio, this most common 1/10 case, then there's the issue of bonds joints and parts that are not visible and therefore does not have any idea of how they will be made, finally! a world of imagination and creativity is essential to perform this type of work so exciting for me.
