The Crown

We created a life-size replica with artistic license of the Queens carriage for the Crown. We initially carried out a recce of the real Golden Carriage. From photographs taken we drew up the carriage and CNC machined a wooden jig for The Devils Horsemen to build the wheels and chassis. This allowed us to have confidence in starting our build concurrently in the knowledge it would all fit perfectly. We used a combination of 3D CNC machining, hand sculpting in clay and 3D printing to produce the components. All of the hand sculpted elements were moulded and cast in GRP. We fabricated offset steel hinges and cast brass handles which had lions head details to tie in with the carvings on the main body. The carriage was also CNC machined in plywood with a vaulted steel roof.
