Welcome to my MODpage of the Lone Ranger 79108 set.
About this creation
The main idea was to preserve the overall beauty of the oficial Lego set, but downsizing the huge coach so that the horses dont look like Shetland ponies...



I wanted to maintain the design with the two black under-parts.
The chassis was totally rebuild, and only the 4 wheels has been carried over from the original set.
The wheelbase is now 1 stud shorter and the gauge two whole studs narrower.
The carriage also rides one brick lower.



The hitching was also totally changed, and will now fit 4 horses. -So poor old Silver will now have to do double-duty as a pulling horse too. Sorry... ;-)
The huge wheels is the main problem, so I put two plates under the horses legs. This makes the overall aspect somewhat better, and the unseemly clumpfeet can be further dissimulated by adding "gravel" and "dirt" on the baseplate where the set will go.



The overall size of the cabin is the same as the oficial set. I added a door with window and door handle. A small access-stair was also added under the door.
Colours has (obviously) been changed. Not that the original red colour is wrong, but the brown gives a more "weathered" look to it.
The cabin is not just a simple colour-MOD; The 4x1 brown arc with grille-brick, window and curtain is actually build upside down, and is not connected to the rest in any way, but held in place (="prisoner") between the rest of the cabin and the roof.
The luggage-shelf at the back was changed to something a lillte lighter and elegant (in my opinion).



In the front, the drivers seat was lifted a little, and a brake-lever added. Lanterns were also made a little smaller.

This is part of the upcoming MegaMOC 2013!

WOW!! I just bought a magazine concerning the 50th anniversary of Lucky Luke. I compared pictures of real stage coach and your creation... Impressive job, very accurate (as usual... ^^)

because I did nt buy lone ranger kits I don t have much of a reference, but, it looks fab to me, also, it would seem to me that 4 horses should be natural, it would nt look as good with 2, although less flashy, brown looks more authentic, the brakes was a very nice touch, you tempt me to get the kit, but, I have to slow down on purchasing, I cannot wait to see your whole scene, it must be...killer! yeeeehaaawww!

Your downsizing and colorchange of the stagecoach is exellent, but I think the horses are still too small.
