Ivan Collins Plans
These plans were drawn by Ivan Collins and reproduced by the Oregon
Historical Society in Portland, Oregon. These would be better for the model
makers - but they would only offer a proportionate guideline for people
building a full size vehicle. Most of these plans are on a 1/8th scale and
are for non-commercial use only. There is also a great book with color
photos of this collection called "Historical Vehicles in Miniature". See the
book list for
Making Model Horse Drawn Vehicles.
Southwest Wagon & Wheel
Plans These plans are on 8 X 11" sheets with written
specs & construction data for building full size vehicles. The plans were
revised by Southwest Wagon & Wheel Works from copies of the Carriage
Monthly, one of the vehicle builder's trade publication from the late 1800's
and early 1900's. I am the exclusive source for these plans.
Teitge These plans are
drafted from the traditional vehicles. There are scale drawings with full
size dimensions. There are now 9 vehicle plans including the Meadowbrook
Cart, Buckboard, Mud Wagon and other horse-drawn vehicles.
Many of these plans were taken out of the old trade journals for building
full size vehicles and some were drawn for the model maker. There is a lot
of detail in each set and there is a big variety of vehicle plans.

Wagonmaster Even though these
were designed for model vehicles, the plans are so detailed they would make
a great guideline for building a full size horse drawn vehicle. They show
every nut, bolt and board.
