This is my first attempt at a carriage. Please leave suggestions on ways to improve the other carriages that will occupy my port.

Maybe you could work on the roof a little (tiles, ornaments, lamps, ect).

I agree, but then again only on the sides probably since I don't know the roofs were made off a hard substance.
Anyway, I like your mansion and I like your carriage, so good luck with your port!

That and maybe make it 1 brick higher so that figures would fit in?
Why do you need TLC to make sets for you, all you really need is parts...be creative!

Very nicely done - ingenious use of the hoses.  I agree, perhaps some hanging lanterns may complete it.

I think this looks very great! I agree with the others that it could be a little bit higher. And since it's a very large carriage, maybe you could add some horses to pull the heavy thing. For the rest it just looks very good :thumbup:

Figures do fit inside I made sure of that.

Maybe he means that if you make it 1 brick higher, figures can stand in it (though that''s ofcourse not neccesary in a carriage) :pir-classic:

Looks great! I love it.
The colours really give it a "royal" feeling. It's a bit long for a carriage I think but I still like the shape.
I would add small low fences on the roof, and lanterns to add some detail on it. Although it's very nicely decorated already.

Sail to My Brickshelf or to My MOCpages, or my Flickr Photostream!

Great work Paul! I really like the effect you've achieved with the windows at an angle.  :thumbup: Only thing I'd suggest is adding some decorations to the roof, but otherwise it's perfect!

I love the design but I think you should shorten it up by at least 4 - 6 studs and 2 studs narrower.  It is very beautiful though.
