Today I wanted to make the carriage from the beginning of the Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix book. It doesn't look very exciting in the movie, so I decided to make it as described in the book (well, all it says that it has a door and Ron dissapears in the darkness of the carriage, so)
Its drawn by thestrals, black thin/skelleton horses. The horses will be added later. I wanted to make it turn (in the front), but it didn't work out correctly and the other alternative looked way to long. But hower, I like it.

Niiiice carriage! Would look great in any Harry Potter, Sleepy Hollow or Victorian scene.
As for the front turning... Can't you put a 2 x 2 plate with an idependently turning circle in the middle, right behind the chair?
Big fan of licensed themes and collectable minifigures.
Still trying to get a short brickfilm out there at some point...

Thanks! I really appreciate your comments.

I'll try something later tonight, to make it turn. And to show the model, I will make a photo of the carriage in Victorian style, with figures and horses. Maybe I'll post it in the History board, or would that be unnecessary?  :sadnew:

EDIT:
An update of the Thestral carriage, now it turns and it has horses. I made it one stud longer, so it can turn now.

That is a beautiful carriage--hope you get those skellie horses soon.  I like the idea of a Thestral Carriage set too...too bad Harry Potter got the deep-six.

Very nicely done!  Put a real horse in front, and it becomes an Eighteenth-Century carriage.  Well done.

Thanks everyone.

No, it doesn't open. At first I made a door with a hinge on it, but I didn't like that so much and I figured out I wasn't going to use the open door anyway, it left it like this. Perhaps if I make some more carriages, there will be some with an open door to bring diversity.  :classic:

Thats great! I love it! Its a shame that Lego didn't continue the Harry Potter line, there are soo many sets that could still be made, Including this one.  :wub:

Nice work!  :thumbup:
