    Default New Chariot........

    Okay...I received this today...and I'm gonna give it "2 Thumbs Up"...

    while assembling it was a tad confusing...and also little frustrating because of the small scale being built with my huge fingers...it's now assembled and looks pretty good...

    I give props on the detail and packaging...it would be too delicate to send pre assembled...in my opinion...

    there are four strap harness's enclosed...sadly...no instructions were enclosed...here are some pictures of how I assembled mine...

    there are 4 grommets on the base of the chariot...

    the two short ones...are to attach the front of the chariot base (two inside grommets)...to go in between the horse's...to their bridle on the inside...

    the two long ones are to attach the front of the chariot base (two outside grommets) to go to the exterior (outer sides) of the horse's...to their bridle on the outside...

    it takes a little patience...and in my case a pair of tweezers...to do this...but it looks pretty cool when assembled...

    I took a pair of pliers to fully close the silver circles once assembled...so they wouldn't slip off easily...I did not crimp the hooks closed as it would be difficult to move around easily...

    I also really like that Brian chose a leather material for the leashes instead of sculpted metal or a chain link...the leather looks more realistic to me...

    check out the detail on the outside of the wheel...the metal strip is a nice touch...

    I have no issues with the size of the horses as someone stated on another thread...

    I'm glad I got one quick as there are only going to be 300 made...

    PRETTY COOL!!!
