    many thanks Bootneck

    Martin, like many things on this build i have had loads of discussions and questions that i have tried to get answered about various bits. Regarding the harness, there are parts of harnesses that have been discovered although none complete. When they made the reconstruction one the only part of the harness they used was the part that goes around the girth, they found that after a while it started to slip back so they added a chest strap, that stopped the girth strap moving back but they then found the yoke tended to slip so they added a second chest strap that connected to the yoke. The rear part that i have added is just for show really

    Hi Paul, I'm not sure how to express my feelings. If I would just say 'Great!' it's .... well it's much more than 'great'. And thank you very for the SBS. (y)

    Outstanding piece, Paul! And it's very instructive for me, from your scratchbuilding on the chariot, figures and horses, to the bits of history discussed in the posts. I look forward to seeing your next installment.

    Prost!
