Cromer Lighthouse 1:250 Scale

A quick build, this one gents:





This kit is produced by David Hathaway of Paper Shipwright:

Paper Shipwright | Card models from the UK

I exhibit at two model shows a year with David, and always buy a few, off him. Also am a frequent visitor to Cromer (was there on Friday)

No time to waste, on with the build:



First is to stick the base onto 2mm card, and glue up the parts to be laminated.



The tower is the first part to be built up and glued onto the base.



Followed by the rest of the buildings. Great thing about building white models - no edge colouring.



Roof parts put on next.

Most of the hard work is now done. Only parts left are the fine details:

And she's done:





Overall a nice little build, about two days easy work.

Going to be building a few more of these. Need to get my building skills up to tackle Reims Cathedral from L'Instant Durable

Great looking model. Those old lighthouses are very good subjects for modeling.

Mainly use PVA glue. I don't favour any brand.

You might need to resize your photos (640 X 480) Then you can either insert directly or use a hosting site like Photo Bucket

Hope this helps

Tim
