Rickshaw from Sarissa

A rickshaw would be a nice piece of scenery in the Indonesian harbour I’m working on. I’ve looked around a bit but haven’t found any rickshaw models suitable for my 28mm figures.
Anyway, I was placing an order at Sarissa when I found out that they actually had a rickshaw, or at least something that could be modified to become one.
In their Gaslamp Alley range of Victorian SF stuff they have a Hansom Cab. Not a rackshaw for sure, but it has the potential.
Limited surgery and you have a rickshaw.
I went for a very easy conversion and removed the seat behind the cab and also the handrail in front of the passenger seats.

It needs paint at this stage.
And there you have it, a rickshaw. A bit on the heavy side but it will work as clutter on the gaming board.
Painted with Vallejo Cork Brown, a wash of Army Painter Strong Tone Ink and drybrushed with Cork Brown and Buff. Diluted Citadel Mechrite Red for the panels.

    1. Thank you.
      Clutter is what makes a gaming table come to life. Always worth the investment

  2. That will certainly add flavour to the table. Should also fit right in on the streets of Hanoi or Saigon. I need to include one in the next Sarissa order.
