introduction
Wedding Carriage (Hochzeitskutsche), item 16706, is a new addition to NOCH's HO series of horse-drawn carriages and wagons.

Wedding Carriage
NOCH packs this model in a fitted cradle held in a hard plastic case.

This model consists of the carriage, two horses, and a groomsman. The horses and man are not attached to the carriage, otherwise everything is factory assembled and ready for display. Everything is factory painted.

detail
NOCH molded harness detail on the horses. The man is nicely detailed in a formal suit. No doubt you can use him for other scenes, too.

The carriage is molded with the door open, allowing you to see a basic interior. The body is two-piece, body and roof. Underneath is a separately applied undercarriage with springs and wheels. The front pivots with the drawbar.

Everything is factory painted, even the green and gold interior.

conclusion
Wedding Carriage allows modelers to add a romantic touch to their layouts or non-railroad scenes.

The models are RTR (Ready To "Run") and need only to be placed where you want them.

Detail is nice for the scale. If you do not like the colors used there is no reason you can not modify the colors used.

This little set makes a nice scene to add romance to a model railroad or HO scale diorama. Recommended.

Please tell vendors and retailers that you saw this set here - on RailRoadModeling.

I'm a professional pilot with a degree in art. My first model was an AMT semi dump truck. Then Monogram's Lunar Lander right after the lunar landing. Next, Revell's 1/32 Bf-109G...cried havoc and released the dogs of modeling! My interests--if built before 1900, or after 1955, then I proba...
