Description:

This is version 3 of the stage coach: the first two uploads failed because of missing textures. I combed over this model for the third upload attempt and apologize to the community if I screwed up again!

This model is true to life in every respect except certain parts of the undercarriage. I worked from numerous photos as well as a copy of the original plans from 1848 (included in the textures folder), but none of them could show or explain what's going on with the undercarriage between the thoroughbraces.

In order to keep the file relatively small, I have left a number of curves, like those in the thoroughbraces, unconverted. The body of the stagecoach is still in mirror mode; applying that will add 3MB to the file size, just sayin'.

Damask wallpaper is no longer available on the web; the site where I got it no longer exists.

HDRi background is a freebie from Greg Zaal, 024. The trees are NOT included; you can find those maples at Blender market, and the rest are freebies from xfrog.

The designs on the panels on the coach came from free dingbat fonts by Intellecta Design. I created the panel maps in Photoshop. The photo of Nogal Peak trailhead on the doors was taken by me. The company name on the coach is fictitious.

It was reviewed in version 2.9.

I'd like to have credit if you find a use for it.

    I have just retreated from having a separate textures folder, and packed all the materials. The file is bigger, but I couldn't shed the base materials from the early days of the project. I wish there was a way to trace a mesh from its material! Anyway, thank you for alerting me. Now I know why it keeps failing the cut.
