Bud Wagon

On a prior 6 Weird Things About Me meme, one of the things I listed was that it took me 20 years to put a model together. Well, here it is. It's a model of the Budweiser Clydesdale's pulling the famous Budweiser beer wagon. I've seen this wagon in person at a fair. It's pretty impressive to see the horses being hooked up. Such majestic animals. Anyway, I had bought this model when I was about 17 I think. I looked at and noticed it needed some acrylic type paint for the vinyl parts that were in it. I didn't have any, so I put it back in the box and kinda forgot about it. Until about 5 years ago when I was on medical for a back problem. I decided that since I couldn't do much else at the time that I would put the wagon together. I did get the gold acrylic paint at that time. It took me about a week to get it all done. It's about 3 ft in length and sits on a simulated cobblestone base. Once Skittles saw it, she wanted to keep it and display it. It now sits on a shelf above her desk in our PC room. And that's my story lol. Till next time BYE!!

Awesome model!! You did a great job. Yes, I may be a little biased since I'm a St. Louis girl (those Clydesdales are like our city mascot), but really it is super neat!

I remember (I am showing our age here) when those models were popular and were in the stores. I was sorely tempted to buy one but I didn't. I am sure that they are still available but I have not seen one in years. Thanks for the trip down memory lane.

Later Y'all

I did a model airplane one time, don’t think it ever flew. This is a great model and great photos. Oh, by the way, we had a table and chairs like that once.

Nice model. I'm sure Barb enjoys seeing it every day!

Mikala said...

And, I just thought of something...Barb wants to display something that almost represents the St. Louis Cardinals as much as the birds on the bat? :0) I mean, their stadium is called Busch Stadium...

I bet you guys can't wait until the next World Series so I'll quit talking about the Cards, huh? But...I'll never quit! :0)
