Just found this supplier of laser cut kits for seaside holiday themes items

Pity the 1/24th scale lighthouse is being discontinued, but it was not cheap, but there are still some nice items for 1/24.

They have some cool things. Lighthouse, my On30 could use one.

not surprising they are discontinuing the 1/24 version of the lighthouse as it it not cheap . Odd considering prices I have seen for similar sized building kits in 1.24th scale.
The 1/48 version is tempting as I might build a small module in O scale.Excuse to include my dockyard type track then.
I like the idea of the laser cut kits, they come flat packed so are easy to post. Bit cheaky, but it would not be difficult to scale up the 1/48 version to create 1/24th version.

And as many lighthouses and lighthouse themed places as I grew up near, one would think I should be able to toss one together from found objects in 5 minutes or less. Oh well, so much for what one thinks :lol:
