London Hansom Cab (1)

    Newer Older

    I built this purely for fun in about an hour. Yes, I'm a pretty slow builder. Thanks goes to my Dad for the '70s-'80s red wheels for the cab. He got them from his first LEGO set in the early '80s. The technique for the road wasn't what I originally planned; but due to lack of parts, which prevented me from completing the original road, I was forced to use this one. I hope it turned out okay.

    The hansom cab is a kind of horse-drawn carriage designed and patented in 1834 by Joseph Hansom, an architect from York. The vehicle was developed and tested by Hansom in Hinckley, Leicestershire, England. Originally called the Hansom safety cab, it was designed to combine speed with safety, with a low centre of gravity for safe cornering. Hansom's original design was modified by John Chapman and several others to improve its practicability, but retained Hansom's name. -Wikipedia

      I really like the road technique, very good for not being too orderly.

      Like the road technique. It looks like the gravel streets they used to have
