17C Coach, Work in progress - 1

Not having an appropriate coach for the period I decided to make one. As a basis for my model I chose the a Dinky 'Slipper and the Rose' coach. These are quite nice and with a paint job would be quite appropriate for an 40mm 18C coach.
 I bought a cheap one on Ebay and took it to bits; leaving me with the parts I wanted - the chassis and wheels
 Before starting on building the new coach body I made up a driver using a 18C 40mm self-cast Creartec cuirassier as a dolly. A new head from Sash & Sabre and lots of green stuff .....
