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.
