Model Trailways Conestoga Wagon 1:12 Scale

by Model Trailways  - Wood & Metal Kit 

The Conestoga wagon originated in the Conestoga Valley near Lancaster, PA around 1750. It was shaped like a boat with both ends curved upward to keep its load from shifting while climbing the steep Appalachian roads. Large wheels kept the cargo dry when crossing rivers, and a water-proof canvas cover protected passengers from heat, rain and snow. Barrels on the sides of the wagon stored water and toolboxes held tools needed for repairs. A grease bucket tied to the back made sure that axles and wheels were properly greased.

The Conestoga wagon was a large, lumbering vehicle that could carry up to 8 tons of cargo. It traveled about 15 miles a day. Because of its tremendous size and weight, the Conestoga wagon required between four and twelve horses to pull it.

Our kit is the most historically accurate Conestoga wagon ever produced. Highly detailed realistic materials include laser-cut basswood body and wheel parts, metal hubs and axels, miniature nails, canvas cover and scale rope and chain. A sheet of photo-etched brass parts replicates the hardware and decorations of a full size wagon. The finished model is complete with working brakes and suspension. Five sheets of plans plus clearly written illustrated instructions make building easy.
